Charlie's hearing went as expected.
You can sleep through your own hearing when you’re a baby. ;-) We had another hearing with Charlie on Thursday. Big V had dropped her Motion to Intervene a week prior, so it was fairly routine. (Big V tried telling us we didn...

The foster rugrat is one happy kid. Especially when Mason plays with him.
He’s a little behind, which is to be expected given his not-so-stellar origin story, but he’s catching up quick. He’s quite the chubby baby these days… and happy! Jiggle his leg. Gets a grin out of him every time. Look Grandd...

A Salted Battery, Golf Cart Edition
Things have been going mostly pretty well here for now. I’m working remote, there’s plenty of stuff to keep Mom and me occupied after work, and we have dealt with most of the little things and all the bigger ones. Mom’s electric golf cart has been acting up...

I was going to write about Scrivener and outliners, but something else came up. It often does at FAR Manor…

Troubleshooting 101 (Tech Tuesday)
Back at the manor for a couple of days, but I’ll be heading out this morning. While I was at Mom’s the last couple of weeks, we kept in touch using both the phone and FaceTime. One day, the wife said, “The dryer’s stopped working. It runs, but it doesn’t ge...

You need to see this stunning cover of "Sandstorm" by Darude!

#cover #edm  
Ever since it was released back in 1999, Darude's massive single "Sandstorm" received all kinds of covers and has been interpreted in many ways. However, just recently, this track got a beautiful orchestral makeover, which you definitely need to check out...

Introduction
What I do isn't necessary what I am.

I've been doing technical writing since 1982. In that time, I got married, raised two kids, and am now raising a grandkid. The latter, family, is what defines me. If my career were my life, many things would be different.

I've always wanted to write stories, but too often found myself doing other things. At some point in the last few years, I got serious about it. In that time, I've written two novels, started a third, and wrote numerous short stories and flash fiction pieces. Many of them can be found on my blog, and I'm in the final few laps of publishing one of my novels, White Pickups.

I'm not all that concerned about "getting published" as eBook outlets now make it possible to bypass the entire query/agent/publisher gauntlet. Yes, doing it yourself is a lot of work — but honestly, the traditional route requires much the same amount (and kinds) of work but without any guarantee of seeing your work on the shelves, actual or virtual. That's not to say I would turn down a traditional book deal if one were offered, but I'm not going to go begging either. In either case, I don't expect to quit my dayjob. It's more important to me that people read and enjoy my stories than having some commercial success.
