Goblins – Gandersnitch Rants

I don’t have anything witty to say today, what with dealing with a windows 10 upgrade gone awry and a pox of wee folks screaming at each other in my house and attempting to steal my breakfast this morning after having their own. So I am grumpy, and I’m not going to be your usual source…

Gencon 2015 Recap

Another GenCon has come and gone, plus a drive to and from St. Louis to pick up the kids, and we are starting to recover from the exhausting trip. Of course, instead of relaxing last night, we had to scrub the floors in three rooms. It seems the dogs managed to outsmart our barricades without…

The Merchant Morrow – Chapter 1

(Due to the prep for, running of, and recovery from an awesome week at Gencon, I am providing a bit of an interlude from The Roanoke Sessions. Instead, I give you the first chapter of a young adult novel I began working on back in 2014. Enjoy, and let me know if you would like…

I figure most of the readers here have picked up my own book,…

A Rose (Tyler) by any other name…

Today I want to take a moment to talk about names, character names especially. Now, I may have an edge here from my years of role-playing games, but I still spend a good bit of time trying to find the perfect name for my characters in any endeavor. A good name helps make a character…

Mermaids! – A Gandersnitch Rant

Hello sheeple! Today I thought, for my biweekly blog post, I could talk about something important. Like politics, or global warming, or men in dresses… you know, that sort of earth shattering stuff that nobody except rabid shut ins actually seems to give a damn about on the internet. But NOOOOOOOOOO! Instead, I get tagged…
