Where Stories Are Made, and Bonus Glass Block

| January 19, 2011

Over at Book Chick City I’m being featured in their series “Where Stories Are Made,” where authors get to do a mini photo-essay about the environment where they actually do their writing.  So you all can get to see the (clean parts of the) office at home and at the day job.  Unfortunately, she didn’t […]

Spring is here

| March 30, 2010

Spent this weekend building raised beds in the back for a vegetable garden.  Spent most of Saturday building these, three boxes 8x4x2 and three 4x4x2. And Truffles is much more mobile now, and she can hang out outside now.
