International Women’s Day

In case you were not aware, today is International Women’s Day.  I have been struggling all morning with what to write and if indeed I should should write anything at all. I see posts on facebook about wearing red (which I did), about striking (which I do every day, unintentionally), and how important the women…

“Not this time!”

In the past few days, I have shared some stuff that is down right scary. Stuff about Bannon, and Conway, and the Trump clan. Some of it was 100% fact, straight from their own mouths, some of it was just informed speculation by intelligent people. I will continue to share these things, because I firmly…

The Path to the Dark Side

I like Yoda. He talks funny, kicks ass when he needs to, leads a minimalist life-style, and is wise beyond belief. To be honest, I like Darth Vader too. He is an excellent bad guy, with a hint of redemption at the end of his arc. Yesterday Steve Bannon, the strategic adviser to the current…

I Hope He Fails…

(Edit: People have been asking if they may share this on social media. Feel free.) Fair warning, I am going to ruffle some feathers today. I am going to piss some people off. But I am an artist and a storyteller; some days it is my job to be silly and make you feel better…

The Naughty List

As an entertainer, I have a friend named Santa Claus. Large fellow, big white beard, always wearing Christmas themed attire. He is the real deal, 365 days a year. We cross paths at Con on the Cob each November and have a great time playing foil to the other’s sensibilities, to the delight of children…

Yes, Bullies Win

I did not want to get out of bed this morning. I did not want to face a day so very different than the day before. I did not want to take my kids to school, and risk having them deal with uninformed kids gloating about who won and who lost. I wanted to protect them.…

Are You Mental? (plus a new website)

Since I like you folks the best, it is true, I do… I figured I would give you a heads up on the next big project I am working on for our publishing/gaming company Wicked Clever (which by the way has a brand new website!) Now, this is in addition to the next Gandersnitch book…

Gotta Catch them All?

Let me start by saying this is totally all my fault. I saw people talking about the new Pokemon Go game on facebook, so I downloaded it to my phone and thought my six year old son would get a kick out of it. I did not realize that in reality, I was unleashing a…

a need to write

So today I finally learned what it means to be driven to write a story. I don’t know that I have ever felt that way before, you know, that I absolutely had to sit down and create a piece of fiction. To have a story that haunted me, and gnawed at me, until I had…

Again with the bullying…

Today I want to talk about bullies. No, scratch that. I really don’t want to talk about bullies. I don’t want to wade into this quagmire and make my voice known. I don’t want to risk alienating friends and family, or new fans that just discovered me this past weekend. I don’t want to make…
