Website Update Time

Storify, bought out by Adobe, shut down operations, flinging my Storify and everyone else’s into the virtual trash bin.

Nervously, I clicked the link and read: “A brush with a life-threatening accident spurs a writer to investigate the “hidden epidemic” of debilitating brain trauma.” Nice first line! I like that […]

Last night at midnight, I joined my fellow Wrimos in the insane endeavour of starting writing a novel when one should be asleep! It’s been too many years since I was ready to write, excited to write, able to join my fellow Wrimos at midnight on my computer. Since 2013, it’s been an exercise in […]
