Balticon 56 Schedule

May convention, take 2! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend StokerCon because the spouse brought COVID home from work. But I’m all better, tested negative, and ready to go! Balticon is my “home convention” so it has a permanent spot on my annual schedule. My weekend is packed with events, both live and virtual, soContinue reading “Balticon 56 Schedule”

Holiday Letter 2021

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

Based on the dreary, rainy weather outside my office, I suppose fall has officially arrived.

Con Report: Capclave 2020

The world we live in continues to be absolutely bonkers, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a lovely Saturday of conversing with fellow authors about world-building and the fantasy genre as part of Capclave 2020.

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

Another month of this crazy year has come and gone. The spouse and I escaped to Atlanta for a week, to socially distance with friends who also work from home. It was absolutely lovely and reminded me how much I miss conventions this year. The TARDIS drove and charged beautifully on its first road trip,Continue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”
