A Truant Disposition

"I must be idle."

The End of a Busy Productive Year!

My end of year summations are typically about invisible things. Invisible, because though I’m very busy and working hard, what I do every day isn’t visible to the world at large until something is published. Books take time and all sorts of things can delay them. But this year saw the publication of a new […]

“You gotta have a plan”

As Earl said in Tremors: “You gotta have a plan.” I’ve got a lot of book projects in progress right now, so I thought I’d update everyone on what’s in the pipeline and the status of each project, as well as what my work schedule for the various books is right now. This is my plan, […]

If Wishes Were Spaceships: The Carnivorous Plants

In the future postulated in my upcoming book, If Wishes Were Spaceships, carnivorous plants are presumed extinct, yet someone has resurrected them (probably from tissue samples).
