The countdown is on.

A final countdown? No. Nothing that dramatic.

It's the countdown to the release of a new novella, titled Of Snow Forts and Santa. Available to purchase in paperback or to download on November 15, 2019.

Keep an eye on this website, my Amazon author pag...

Hot summer days are nearly behind us and -- many of you will likely disagree with this -- but I am thinking of snow. I mean, if Starbucks™ can roll out their pumpkin spice products already, then I can think about snow.

It's hard to believe seven months in 2019 have already been stamped in the history books.

Time is funny that way, in that it's always flying by, even when you take a moment to savor it, to embrace it, and, importantly, live in the now.

In March of 2018, after a four-year journey of drafts, rewrites, notes on pieces of scrap paper, and some decent-sized edits, I published, via Kindle Direct Publishing, The Blue Gem.

A little over a year later, after taking another pass through the novel with edits, a f...

Wrote the following for an entry into a contest. Alas, it wasn't selected so I figured I'd toss it on the website.


“If it sounds right, I’ll repeat it.”

Trailing off, the sentence remained suspended on the lips, a juicy morsel ready to be ejected int...

There was a span of 12 hours, in the last week of February, in which the Treasure Valley received 2-3 inches of snow, followed up by steady rain, and finished up with sunshine. Volatile? Yes. Out of the normal for this time of year? Not likely.

February 2, 2019

Boy, January 2019, you sure went up and disappeared quickly.

One day, a person is setting out with eyes up, ready to attack a new year with gusto. Really get out there, put the nose to the grindstone, and get stuff accomplished.

Oh, hey, it's now February. Wasn't it just...
