Last January I posted, “I find myself five days into a new year with memory of goals not reached and the informal planning of new goals that may or may not come to fruition. …,” on another blog.  One of my unreached goals was to post there and here weekly. I fully expected to finish a sequel...

Photo: Movie poster, from its Wikipedia page.   Very good "hallway" movie that connects the first to the yet-to-be-released third film, and apparently only meant as such.  I say that because when the one moment comes that you've been waiting for, the movie ends.  The fact that...

Yes, it's that time of year again! November's Super Fancy and Thankful November Blog!!! So then, let's be bold (lazy) and work without an outline, shall we? First up, but not necessarily in chronological order, I went to St. Louis to speak/teach at the Missouri SCBWI. However, we got...

Boy, it’s been a long time since I last blogged. The summer was full of joy. I visited my children and grandson in Missouri for a few days in May. He celebrated his second birthday. That was our first true introduction since his birth and I christened him my “Pumpkin PIe”! I think that one of his...

Dear Readers,   In the next few days, I will try a massive (in terms of time, anyway) undertaking: two new blogs, maybe three.  So in addition to this site and my sports blog (where I babble mostly about baseball, baseball cards, and the sports world at large), please look at my...

What could she possibly be carrying around in her ever-present accoutrement?  Car keys?  She doesn’t drive; carriages or cars.  A personal dresser shops for her clothes so she doesn’t need shopping money.  And wouldn’t it be strange carrying around currency with your picture on...
