Wolf Heart Excerpt

(It has come to my attention that my links are off, so I am reposting some book excerpts I can’t find on my site anymore.) 1 The world puts demands on us. Endure this, it says. Survive this, it dares. However, the higher powers, if there are any, have no understanding of who we are. […]

Supernatural Veterinary Science: Good God, don’t do that!

My dayjob and writing life will collide this weekend at Imaginarium in Louisville, KY. I’ll be teaching a writing class on applying biology (vet medicine/animal behavior science/epidemiology). Coincidentally, I’ve also been reading Hounded by Kevin Hearne. I was recommended to me by a number of people who probably thought I’d like it because the main […]

A snippet from the WIP

From my work in progress, Gone to the Dogs Jax jogged restlessly through the pines, cedars, and naked oaks of the “tame woods”. It was technically on the human side of their territory. Some human, many years ago, had paved a trail through and culled diseased wood, even planted woodland flowers and erected a few […]

Oh, Carrie Fisher

I didn’t know what Star Wars was for a long time, but I’d been watching it. Way back when, when my mom was divorcing my dad she’d take us to his apartment for Saturday visits, but he often couldn’t be bothered to spend much actual time with us. Sometimes this hurt a lot. But it […]

Two months ago a pack war erupted over the fifty-odd square miles of prime territory where Michael had lived his whole life. Many people, even […]

Review: She-Hulk, Volume 1: Single Green Female

Apparently She Hulk is way to much of a rock star for anyone to handle. Her success, invulnerability and Tony Stark-like fame has made her a very difficult to tolerate Avenger. So difficult that she is fired from her day job, kicked out of the Avengers manor and firmly encouraged to re-evaluate her play girl, […]

Review: Dog with a Bone by Hailey Edwards

Thierry is the daughter of the Black Dog, a fearsome, often vicious enforcer of the fae, and a human mother. She’s just graduated marshal school and is now on her first real case with her trainer turned partner and romantic interest, Shaw (the only person known to be immune to her power). Someone is poaching […]

Review: Guardians Team-Up #10

You are going to get exactly what you think with this one. Deadpool peddling a bike (that is apparently owned by Zelda) with an angry gun-firing Rocket Racoon in the basket sprawls over the cover and inside Rocket and Deadpool kill evil aliens and make smarmy jokes for 32 amusing pages. There is some continunity, […]
