Another day has rolled around. Probably a good thing that they keep doing that. 🙂 This morning I tweaked a scene in [Whiskey Tango Foxtrot] because I have time before my lovely editor gets into the book. So I added something that was needed and sent off an updated version. I've started on [Foxtrot Mike … Continue reading Faraway Eyes

(Good on you if you actually think writing is easy or ever simple.)You have to write, be published, and be on all the *social media, and constantly be … Continue reading The thing with being an author …

My tiramisu was the 'best yet' by all accounts. I modified the recipe slightly and the modification is now going to be … Continue reading That thing when I can’t …
In case anyone doesn't know the blog title, Devil Gate Drive is a Suzi Quatro song from the 70s. 1974 in fact. Moving right along.After a discussion with Doris yesterday regarding 'Life in the Leaves' (or whatever I eventually call the story) ... turns out she likes fantasy even though she repeatedly asked me to … Continue reading Devil Gate Drive
