Every journey has an end

You’ve caught me in the middle of a big move. After living in England for the last ten years, we’re moving back to the United States. Although I’m still as American as, well, apple pie, I’ve now got a whole new outlook on things like, well, pie. (Hint: Don’t order it for dessert.) Sometimes I […] Read more…

Temptation re-release: new cover

This house is getting old, I guess, because it feels like everything is breaking at once. I’m feeling old, too, and worn out, just from talking to people, perfectly nice people, but still… […] Read more…

This news made my day!
