A Post for Irene

Posted & filed under Friends and Other Books.

I only plug things I really like. And when a book I really like, written by a friend, goes into a book bundle with nine other books for .99, I figure it’s a public service to say something about it.

Desk Tour!

Posted & filed under Personal Posts, Video Blog.

Hey all! I have a video tour of my desk today. Before we get started, I’ll mention that I have nothing on my desk from my mother. My mum is awesome and we get along extremely well. I’ve often thought I should add something from her to make sure she’s rep’ed! But no item has… Read more »
