Half Century

| September 1, 2016

Yep, I hit the big 50 today and pretty much the most exciting thing I did today so far was renew my plates and driver’s license. Now I need to dig up that AARP card they sent me.

Welcome to Moreytown

| August 4, 2016

You may have heard me mention on Facebook that I’m writing a game for the fine folks at Choice of Games based on my Moreau Novels.  As I said when I broke the news: If you’re unfamiliar with CoG’s work, think of it as a (much more) sophisticated digital version of the “choose your own […]

About 16 years ago we wanted a new cat…

| July 21, 2016

So we went to the Geauga Humane Society to get a new friend for our cat Mu. Michelle wanted a fluffy white Persian, but she made the mistake of handing me a little black kitten before filling out paperwork. By the time she came back, I told her we found a cat. She was all, […]

Libertycon 29

| July 14, 2016

If you were following me on Facebook you know I attended Libertycon 29 this past weekend. I had a blast. Even though it was a bit outside my normal stomping grounds, I found no shortage of folks to talk with— no small thing for an introverted cave-dweller such as myself. Highlights: The con staff was […]

Coming up next month. . .

I will be the Writer GOH at the local Cleveland Concoction.  The con is March 13th though the 15th.  If you register before March 3rd, you have the chance to sign up for a VIP Brunch with me on Sunday morning.  Hope to see you all there.

…And I’m Back

| February 23, 2011

I’ve returned from RadCon after a slightly longer than intended return trip.  First me and John Dalmas were stuck in Minneapolis for 7 hours while our original flight crew went awol in the snow somewhere in Detroit, and the replacements showed up just in time to be just over their regulation flight time, bumping us […]

Arbitrary Government

| December 30, 2010

One thing that eludes Statists of all stripes is the fact that the more discretion the State has to act, the more prone it is to manifest the baser aspects of human nature.  When the State is free to act as it will, it becomes as petty, vindictive, stupid and arbitrary as its constituent bureaucrats.  […]

Persistence

| September 2, 2010

Well, I’m getting the chance to practice what I preach.  I’ve said that the most important part of being a writer is actually writing, butt in chair, day in and day out.  Right now it would be very easy for me to slack off.  I have one proposal and a full MS in my agent’s […]
