Very pleased to say that my short story “Heartbeat” has made it into the ToC of Genius Loci, edited by Jaym Gates.

You start to haunt your google ego-search and Goodreads, hoping to hear nice things and cringing against the thought of bad things… (this stage, for me, lasts about two-three days. But it’s a painful few days…) Fortunately, the first review I saw of DOGHOUSE was here “The witty banter between characters Tonica and Ginny and the […]
And lo, after much waiting… okay, it’s been eight months since FIXED, I’m hoping you’ve been waiting! It’s here! When Ginny Mallard and her sometimes-partner Teddy Tonica are asked to look into the situation of an old man about to be evicted, the part-time investigators think it’s just a matter of sorting out misunderstandings. But this is […]
So yeah, the weekend was spent dealing with paperwork and filing (did you know that 8+ years of royalty statements = a LOT of paper? It does.

But this is no simple landlord-tenant spat, bringing them headfirst – and nose-deep in trouble – […]
Fresh coffee, sleeping cats, and work to be done. There’s my morning sorted, then. Meanwhile, for you, I’m doing a guest stint this month at Magical Words….
Short version: I spent one slightly rainy day and two very nice warm bright sunny days being Out! and Social! and Eating! (in some cases actually picnicking) and doing not a lick of work.
