My most productive time may be when I’m half asleep.  My most important writing tool is a small pad of paper on my nightstand.  My younger daughter has to catch the school bus at a ridiculous 6:52 a.m.  Much of the year, it’s dark; much of the year, it’s cold.  Also, there are coyotes in our neck...

(continued from Part 1) The cocktail hour conversation was upon us.   We gathered around Emily to bring her news of the day and import our energy and loving attentions into her small daily world.  We chatted and joked and teased and told stories.   Until the last year Emily was able to maintain the...

 The following is a response I had to the blog I posted about Borders Book Stores embracing the internet. Glenn Murray is the co-author of Walter The Farting Dog. Though we both happen to have written about a dog, the resemblance to our books ends there. I have read about how important it is for an...
