The Madness Spreads

I never did find my watch. I had to buy a new one. I was just certain that I’d come home with my new watch and my old one would be waiting for me, all ha-ha here I am! but no. And now I’ve lost my flash drives. Not all of them, thank goodness, but most of them. They must have run off with my watch. It’s like all my stuff is doing a production of that song in The Sound of Music where the Von Trapps sneak away from the Nazis. But I don’t even speak German! Come back, my stuff, come back!

You don’t suppose Charlie is trying to gaslight me, do you? Because if I’m going to be gaslighted, I want Charles Boyer to do it. I’m just sayin’.

Can I get an Amen?

My latest collection of short stories, TURTLE FEATHERS, is now available at Smashwords for $1.49. If you’d like to read excerpts of all the stories in it, visit the TURTLE FEATHERS excerpts page. It’s still awaiting clearance for the Premium Catalog, so it isn’t yet available at iTunes or B&N, but it’ll get there. Meanwhile, Smashwords offers it in all electronic formats, including html, PDF, and rtf, so you can read it online or on your plain old computer. 🙂

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character hides small objects from another character. What kinds of objects? Why?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
