A word about television

on October 30, 2020

I am not sure who needs to know this, but Mate and I get into our TV. I mean, REALLY into our TV.  To the extent that I cried like a baby during the last two episodes of LoveCraft Country–like, I couldn’t breathe kind of crying, and Mate and I took turns looking at our… Read More

90. Wow.

on October 22, 2020

  Two short moments– but funny ones. So, I’m walking the dogs around the park today (stunned. Simply stunned. Don’t lie. I can tell you’re all shocked.) Geoffie sees an older gentleman–I’m thinking seventy, maybe? My dad’s age? And she goes up and starts to bark and sniff and bark. He bends down creakily to… Read More

What Time is It Again?

on October 19, 2020

 It’s weird. After nearly 28 years of motherhood, I’ve developed a sort of litany, chapter and verse, to the problems of the other denizens of my household.  “Have you slept? Do you need a nap? Have you eaten? When was the last time you drank water? Did you poop? How long ago? Consistency? Were there… Read More

An Odd Anniversary

on October 13, 2020

 Many of you know this story. Ten years ago I was teaching high school and I was also helping to lead the Gay/Straight alliance during lunches. I’d put out a couple of books by this time–a lot of them self-pubbed but some through Dreamspinner Press, and I’d gotten some notice. Truth in the Dark was… Read More

I am delighted to know it’s out there–and proud to recommend it to you! Then,… Read More

Wish You Were Here

on October 2, 2020

 For the longest time, Birthday Week was a raucous, exhausting celebration. Chicken, my older daughter, had her birthday on September 24th. My Aunt Teresa had hers on September 23. Mine was on September 30th, and Mate’s and my bio-mom’s were both October 1st. For a while there, we had one big party at my grandmother’s…. Read More

Superman’s Bris

on September 26, 2018

I LOVE my DSP weekend. I really do. I meet and plan and talk and even have an occasional panel to be on (which I forgot about and still showed up with an audio-visual aid!) Anyway– it was wonderful, and I may pull out stuff to talk about in the next week, and I have… Read More
