I Am Not Making This Up: Ep. 2 The Curse of the Little Bastard

My short story, The Hobos, The Devil and James Dean’s Car is featured over at the pulp magazine Crimson Streets. You can read it here. In honor of the publication, I’m podcasting an abridged version of the article that inspired the story.  If you’d like to read the longer article, you can do so here. […]

Let’s Talk About the Bad Fairy

  I’m listening to my kids read Sleeping Beauty (or listening to their book read to them, since technically they are 4 and 1 1/2. But eh. Semantics. Whatevs.). It strikes me as very short sighted that the bad fairy is the one you forget to invite to a baby shower.  Forget a good fairy, what’s […]

If you ever go to one convention, let it be SoonerCon

The last weekend of June, I was honored to be a guest at SoonerCon.  I say honored, because over the past few years, I’ve seen it grow from an enjoyable literary and gaming convention to a convention that manages to bridge the gap between old fandom and new without making anyone feel left out.  The […]

More People Die From Hippos Than Shark Attacks

Now that Little Miss is old enough to play board games, Hubby and I thought about buying some of the classic games we liked when we were kids. Just one problem. Since we were kids, the games have been updated. Take Hungry Hungry Hippos, for instance. It used to be a simple game of eating […]
