March 2018 Update

Woah. March. So much to tell you about. Let’s start with the readings!

First, we had this wonderful reading at Kirkwood Community College. There are three of of us at the college who are science fiction writers, so Dennis Green, Jed Petersen and I had a wonderful event. It was great.

Next, I journeyed to California. Chris Cornell, Karl Dandenell and I read at Fogcon and at Book Passage. I also had a good time hooking up with my agent Mary C. Moore.

As I write this, I’m at the TESOL conference in Chicago, so it has been a month of much traveling, and while I’ve been having a wonderful time getting out and about, I’m ready to stay home for a while.


Writing-wise, I’ve been pinning down my first draft of my middle-grade hopeful Abigail Rath Versus Mad Science. For those of you who have encountered Abby before, you can expect more encounters with the supernatural. Some of you also might remember Dr. Lila Blake from…places, and yes, she does make an appearance in this book. I am making steady progress. My fine beta readers are sending me feedback on The Pawn of Isis, which I’ll work on as soon as the Abby draft is in hand.


So, April. What’s happening in April? A whole lot of writing, and this event:

If you’re in Ankeny, Iowa, please come and see me. I’ll be selling The Vessel of Ra, and copies of The Abandoned Places Anthology from Shohola Press. Good stuff.
