A Kinder, Gentler Apocalypse (#SFWA Pro)
I grew up in the fifties, when we learned in grade school to “duck and cover” (hide under our desks)  for protection from an atomic bomb blast. Not unsurprisingly I had frequent recurring nightmares about that very thing. In fact, I kind of expected it to h...

How is a Snake Like Ginger Rogers?
It was said of  the actress/dancer Ginger Rogers that she could do everything her partner, Fred Astaire, could do--but she did it backwards and in high heels. It’s sort of the same way with snakes. Looking at these amazing creatures, you can’t help but noti...

My highly-praised novel PANDORA'S PROMISE is free today and tomorrow on Kindle. I need 50 reviews. I've been stuck at 36 for several weeks. So here's a proposition: please download the book.

I'm working on a couple of writing blog posts. In the process I found a post from a year ago-on flashbacks- that several writers told me was helpful. So here it goes again. Expect to hear more soon, and also on my nature blog. The graphomaniac is back! http://bit.ly/1N69SAI
