I've been grappling with insomnia once more (specifically, for the past three nights), but that can't stop the weekly posting of EATING AUTHORS.

If you're feeling more awake than me, click the link below and check in with what Liz Braswell has to say about her most memorable meal.

I'm in a different timezone, so this installment of EATING AUTHORS is coming to you a bit later than usual. I hope you won't hold that against this week's guest, Naomi Novik, who wants nothing more than to tell you of her most memorable meal.

Memorial Day here in the USA, though as I'm currently in California for a convention the holiday arrived here three hours later than my usual experience (also, the ocean is on the wrong side).

But that's not why I'm here. The reason for this post is to remind you that it's Monday, and thus time for another EATING AUTHORS post. This week, we continue and conclude the meals from Campbell Award nominees as Alyssa Wong swings by to be our guest.

So click that link below, time's rushing by.

I'm back from an amazing (albeit exhausting) few days in Chicago. It was a particularly rigorous trip home, which is code for "taking today off."

Fortunately, I'd prepared today's EATING AUTHORS segment in advance (pedantic side note: doesn't the "pre-" in the word "prepare" always connote doing the thing in advance? Else, what is *paration?). So click below and meet Bishop O'Connell. He has a little something to tell you about his most memorable meal.

It's the first Monday in May. There should be a prize or something, right? I mean, seriously, I know I did not want to get out of bed this morning. Sigh.

Well, much like the Wizard of Oz, I probably cannot give you the kind of prize you were hoping for, but what I do have for your is pretty special all the same. That's right, it's the new EATING AUTHORS post! And waiting to share her most memorable meal with you is Jenniffer Foehner Wells. Click the link and read all about it.

Ugh. Seriously, I mean that. I am not ready for a Monday (especially for a Monday where I only just learned I have an evening meeting for the Day Job happening). Ugh.

The only thing that could possibly cheer me up would be if there was an exciting new guest over on EATING AUTHORS this morning. Hey, wait, there is! Oh wow! The day's looking brighter already. Click the link below and you'll see what I mean!

It has not been a good Monday so far, at least for me. But, unless you've been trapped on an airplane for three hours seated next a stranger and his adorable toddler-age daughter (who spent the duration of the flight screaming, crying, and/or pooping) you cannot feel my pain.

Instead, click the link below and see what this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Micah Joel, has to say about his most memorable meal.

The first Monday of June has come, and I'm feeling pretty optimistic about it. MInd you, I'm also planning a pretty slow day today (starting with a visit to my chiropractor, as one does).

Assuming your spine's just fine, I encourage you to start your day with this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Adam Rakunas, and let him tantalize you with an account of his most memorable meal.

I spent the wee hours of this Monday morning have a deep and personal conversation with my insomnia. Ugh. Don't get me started.

Instead, allow me to introduce you to this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Brian Niemeier. Brian kicks off this year's series of Campbell Award nominee meals. Follow the link below to read his.

Monday has dared to show itself again, and this time I'm ready for it. And because I'm ready for it that means you're ready for it too. Or at least you will be if you click the link below and check out EATING AUTHORS featuring the amazing account of this week's guest, Ada Palmer

Looking out my office window I see trees flowering and hear birds chirping. What the hell?

But forget that, it's Monday, which means another installment of EATING AUTHORS. This week my guest is none other than Nina Post, and she's waiting for you to click this link and read about her most memorable meal!

Monday has dawned, and I've been running around doing assorted errands all morning. At last I can pause and post this link, so you can indulge in the memory of a meal from this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Rhonda Eudaly. 

Unless of course you're still running around dealing with your own errands. In which case, no problem, take your time, the link isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Story
Tagline
author / publisher / psychologist / hypnotist / klingonist
Introduction
I have a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology, and  spent ten years as a college professor. I currently work as the director of research and analytics for a series of mental health and addiction treatment facilities. Additionally, I'm a certified hypnotherapist, using my powers of mind control to help other authors.

I'm also the founder and director of the Klingon Language Institute, which has been a very wild ride. More recently, I began a speculative fiction small press, Paper Golem, aimed at serving the niche of up-and-coming new writers as well as providing a market for novellas.

In 2007, I was nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for best new writer; in 2010 I received a Hugo nomination for best short story; in 2013 I garnered a Nebula nomination for best novella. In fiction I'm probably most known for the series of stories, novelettes, and novels about the Amazing Conroy and his buffalo dog companion, Reggie.

I live near Philadelphia with my wife, Valerie, who is neither a psychologist nor a Klingon speaker.
