Offering an olive branch is usually the go to move for middle children. I’m not sure when this philosophy changed for me, but it has. I used to be the type… Read More Middle Child
This past year has been a year of anxiety driven waiting. First, I counted the days until my retirement. Then COVID 19 hit and we all waited for things to return to normal, for lockdowns to lift, etc. (we’re still waiting). But the biggest waiting has occurred around politics. Extremely important political elections to be… Read More Waiting…
Heart palpitations. Pacing the floor, mumbling to yourself. Acting like a complete fool as you stare at the object of your obsession. My palms begin to sweat.

My wife and I have taken the stay the fuck at home orders seriously. We only go out to the grocery store, take out places, and post office. We religiously wear our masks, wash our hands, wipe everything down while in the store, etc. We canceled our trip to Texas after the Lonestar Book Event… Read More Rolling Home
No-one was more surprised than I was when asked to participate in a Curve Magazine event, titled Hot Spots and Connect the Dots. Why? Because of the panel description: Bring your cold drink as these leading romance writers reveal their sexy, sultry secrets in connecting characters in the powder keg where erotica and relationships collide.… Read More Erotica
As usual, I troll social media because sometimes there are extremely funny posts. One of those asked why a certain business wasn’t considered essential. I had to agree with that popular author’s perspective and decided to weigh in with my list of essential and non-essential businesses.
