Not smarter than the remote control

Everybody’s good at some things and not-so-good at others. This is awesome because it means we all do different things and everything gets done. Eventually.

Quite often, we wish we could do things we’re not so good at. I wouldn’t mind being able to paint. Or sing. I’d really like to be able to sing, actually. I also can’t cook. But the most annoying thing I’m not-so-good at?

Every once in a while, I’ll end up with … Read More »

Happy novella news

I have some happy news! “Alone With You”, my novella released last year in the Be Mine anthology, will be reissued on February 11th as a single digital novella.

My favorite (and least so) movies of 2013

I don’t get to see a lot of movies. Theater trips have traditionally been limited to Harry Potter and Marvel movies and, while I’ll buy movies on Blu-ray or iTunes, it’s often quite some time before I/we actually watch them. So, I watched the following movies in 2013, but they weren’t necessarily released in 2013.

My three least favorite movies of 2013:
