Midgard Blooms

Spring has finally arrived. I’ll admit, we didn’t have a cold winter here in Charlotte, but it’s still good to see the flowers starting to bloom. I planted these hellebores about three years ago and they finally grew enough to bloom this year. The name hellebores sound like a mythological creature, which is one of […]

All Things Fade

“All things fade and quickly turn to myth.” — Marcus Aurelius 2019 was a tough year.  I kept thinking it was going to slow down, but it wasn’t to be.  I was away from home every month for work, family, or writing.  On a positive(?) note, I visited much of the United States this past […]

Hello World!

Let’s see, it’s been a couple of months since my last post.  What have I been doing?  A bit of traveling, a bit writing, and a bit of gardening in between.  All those bits add up to a lot to catch up on. Here in Charlotte, Spring has sprung. All the birds are twitterpated and […]

Book Launches are for…..

My new book launched on January 29th, unfortunately with little fanfare.  I was in the frozen north on a business trip and had my hands full with the polar vortex, flight delays, and rental car flat tires.  Yes, yes I should have had posts set up ahead of time.  I have no excuses but the […]

World Fantasy Convention

I went to the World Fantasy Convention in Baltimore at the beginning of the month.  Overall, I’d have to say that I was underwhelmed. This convention is only for fantasy literature.  There were no people in costume, games, or movie stars.  I don’t typically get into that stuff, so I thought this would work well […]

Coming Up for Air

I always do NaNoWriMo, but I rarely win.  Actually, I’ve won once (2011) – the first year I tried it.  November is just a bad month (for me) to do this, and I’m just not that fast a writer.  So I’m at 3000 words on day 11.  Not too impressive. November always seems to fill […]
