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 […]

Spam Spam Spam

Not my Spam, other people’s. Here’s the deal: If you send me an Event Invite through Facebook or GoodReads and have never interacted with me at all in any other way, I WILL UNFRIEND YOU. If you add me to your promo list and I’ve never said “Add to me to this list” even if […]

Just who is the victim here?

A few years ago in an effort to better socialize my autistic son we started going to story time at the downtown library. It’s a gorgeous building, and he liked being there. We continued the tradition after my daughter was born, busing about three miles, walking about three blocks so my son could run around […]

Fandom Fail
