Pen Pals: Remember Those?

Remember pen pals? At some point in my grade school career I had one, from somewhere. Pennsylvania maybe? How fun was it to write and receive letters from a person on the other side of the country or perhaps world? Why did we – in general – stop the pen […]

Hounded

Hounded is overall okay. It’s the first book in The Iron Druid Chronicles that currently sits at the count of nine, arguably ten, but whatever. Being that it’s the first book there are a lot introductions in this book. Characters and the world, are introduced and constructed well enough for […]

The Guest List

The Guest List is a fantastic mystery novel. Lucy Foley has created a suspenseful story that never loosens its grip, but doesn’t exhaust the reader either.  She also seemed to have said “Hold my beer!” and engineered the entire story to keep the reader guessing the entire time. Which is […]

Word We Go Wrong? – Reminisced

Which is pretty Inceptiony. To go over one’s memory of going over one’s memory. Entering triple deep territory when one reminisces about the time they reminisced.

Gideon the Ninth

Gideon the Ninth is a fantastic read! I picked it up on a bit of whim. I’d heard about it a couple of times, but after reading about some fandom merch on Book Riot, I had to pick it up. “Lesbian necromancers in space,” is how it was pitched to […]

Off Topic: Races for 2021

I’ve entered four of five races I now plan to do in 2021. At the beginning of last week, I wasn’t planning on doing any at all. Then an email hit my inbox with a great deal. I couldn’t help myself, as I do love a good bargain. Without any […]

Middle Grade Book

I’ve been writing a middle grade book since the July 2020 Camp NaNoWriMo. Well, there was plenty of prep work before then. I remember that I wrote the outline on a ferry ride from Vancouver Island in February of 2020. Prior to that there was the project that this one […]
