Author, Editor, Media Tie-In Writer

Bubble and Squeek for 13 Nov 2023

Anthology Forthcoming: December 12th release date, The Reinvented Detective anthology with fabulous people like Premee Mohamed, Seanan McGuire, and Harry Turtledove!

Class: Last class of the year: Class: Body Language and Description As Genre. This is one of my most popular classes. Excellent for short fiction and long. Spots and scholarships still available!

D&D Campaign Ending: It was an epic end to a multi-year campaign. As told by players in the game on BlueSky (must be logged in)… Wing’s perspective and Seanan’s perspective.

EVENT – Reading: I will be reading with David D. Levine at the University Bookstore on Nov 21. I will be representing the Reinvented Anthology series, The Reinvented Heart and The Reinvented Detective. David will be reading from his new book: The Kuiper Belt Job. Here’s the EventBrite event listing and the Facebook event listing.

Local Bookstore: I finally had the chance to visit Brick & Mortar Book store in Redmond. The store is beautiful and friendly. The staff is a delight. This is where to get my signed books for the holidays. Personalized, even.

Shoutout: I highly recommend Shigidi and the Brass Head of Obalufon by Wole Talabi. I am savoring this book like a woman who savors a favorite cocktail—with great appreciation without being too serious. (Though, I am pondering some of the techniques Talabi uses as a writer to steal.)  

Virtual Panel: December 4th! Deceptions and Death: Talking Thrillers. It includes me and other fabulous authors.

Support: As always… if you appreciate my work and would like to support me, I love coffee. I am made of caffeine. This is the quickest way to brighten my day.

I decided to start decluttering on Saturday with my bathroom. That continued on into the hall closet. I didn’t expect the hall closet to take that much time. Except for the CDs. I’m one of those people who has held onto their CDs “just in case.” I’m part of the generation that grew up without the internet until my twenties. Some habits are hard to let go. First thought: It’s amazing how much crap you stash away when you’re “just cleaning.” I remember doing a deep clean on the bathroom a few months ago, but I still found many tubes of expired makeup, hand cream, and sunscreen. Second thought: CDs. Oh lord. Those included unexpected emotional bombs. Like hypnotherapy for weight loss and self-esteem. I kept about 160 CDs. This included my maybe pile. Donated 180+ CDs. I culled it by asking myself, “Would I miss this CD if the...
