In Which We Discuss Why We’re All Really Here

Thanks for joining me as I continue the tour of my new Web site! The next tab at the top of the page I’d like to discuss is named “Books.” I only have two fiction publications so far. But they’re both pretty epic, so you’ll have to excuse the short list. In 2014, a friendContinue reading “In Which We Discuss Why We’re All Really Here”
