Whee! I might have a story in Time Traveled Tales!

Good news! If our Kickstarter reaches $14,000, I’ve learned that one of my short stories will be in the e-book version! (It’s at almost $12,000 now.) My story is about music and time travel (and the Beatles may or may not have some involvement), so if that sounds remotely interesting to you, please check out the Kickstarter and help us … Continue Reading →

Abbey Road on the River 2013

So in May I went to Abbey Road on the River in Louisville – my 5th year going there. It was going to be a bit of a strange year because a lot of regulars weren’t going to be there. Janine was at Balticon, Rob (the drummer in our band who has been going every year) had gigs with his … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up To… May and part of June

Our garden is looking pretty good:

A Hero By Any Other Name

Woohoo, the anthology with my story is now OUT! Ok, you guys, I know this is right on the tail of my last post about Silence in the Library Publishing’s Kickstarter for Time Traveled Tales (which is already up to $2k!!)

Silence in the Library Publishing (of which I am a part), Kickstarter, and a host of renowned authors including names like Aaron Allston, Michael A. Stackpole, and Timothy Zahn, are hoping to make … Continue Reading →

Disney Flower & Garden (and food!) – Monday

We had a late flight out on Monday so we had pretty much a full day to spend at a park. Even fuller once we learned our flight was delayed by 2 hours. Fortunately this time we had a rental car, so we could plan accordingly. We had 4:45 dinner reservations at Boma, so we spent the day at Animal … Continue Reading →

Disney Flower & Garden (and food!) – Sunday

Sunday morning we headed for the Magic Kingdom. We hit Space Mountain first and since there was only a 10 minute wait, we went on it once. And then we got off and did it a second time. Slightly longer wait, but still not bad. We saved our Fasspass for Splash Mountain. We acquired the Fast Pass and then went … Continue Reading →

Disney Flower & Garden (and food!) – Saturday

Saturday we headed to Hollywood Studios in the morning since when we were here for the Princess we weren’t able to get on Tower of Terror. We fast-passed it this time and then headed over to Star Tours. We went on twice in a row with little wait and got two scenarios we hadn’t gotten before (Hoth and Coruscant) and … Continue Reading →

Disney Flower & Garden (and food!) – Friday

Doug and I enjoyed the Food & Wine festival at Epcot so much that when they added food to the Flower & Garden festival, I was able to talk him into going for a weekend. Much as I love cheering my friends, it was nice to go to Disney with no races and no real agenda. Other than to eat … Continue Reading →


Chris, who is one of our awesome professional photographers at work got a few pics of my with the JWST full-scale model at SXSW (at my request). Here they are! And yep, the real spacecraft will be this big!

US Capitol tour

Since I’m home sick I thought I would post some pictures! Janine currently works at the Capitol and had offered us a tour – and we finally took her up on it! I took lots of pics – except where I couldn’t take pics, which was in the actual House floor, where the State of the Union address happens. No … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up To (April)

Here’s a bunch of pics, including a lot of spring flowers, cupcakes, and some pics of Willow. Here we go! Our crocuses started blooming pretty early this year and we had a lot of them. I love crocuses.
