Hello Bloglandia! If you happen to pay any attention to the news (depressing, I know) or to my Instagram account (which no one does), you'll know the Pacific Northwest has angered the sun gods this summer. Apparently we forgot to sacrifice a salmon or a microbrew or whatever it takes to appease King Sol. Temperatures … Continue reading If You Can’t Stand the Heat…Get Out the Humor?
Hello Bloglandia! I have a little confession. I like free stuff. I know, I know, who doesn't? I mean, no one's going to turn down a free lamp from Tiffany's, right? But the free stuff I'm talking about isn't exactly treasure. Well, not always. Let me explain... So I walk and run a lot to … Continue reading Another Man’s Junk…
Once again, I found myself tumbling into a curious reading theme in July. This time many of the books I picked up had troublesome buildings playing a key role in the story. From the possessed printing office of The Stranger Times to the dark demons haunting Gil's All-Fright Diner to the tragic event outside The Dakota in The Final Days … Continue reading July’s Reading Round-up: Location, Location, Location

I'm not dropping the price of all my books to zero cents. What kind of loony bird do you think I am. Wait, don't answer that. See, … Continue reading Go on, read my books for free! No, really.
Hello Bloglandia! So June was an amazing month in my writing world. Unfortunately the month had to end with The Horrible Heat Wave That Proves the Evils of 2020 Aren't Done With Us Yet. Not to load you down with a lengthy weather report, but here in Portland we're normally in the high 70s at … Continue reading June’s Writing Round-up
Hello Book Fiends of Bloglandia! So, I managed to survive the heat wave in Portland...although I think the cats might have melted and portions of my garden are now "extra crispy". Monday's thermometers nearly burst their bulbs when we topped out at 116F (about 47C), which blasted away Sunday's 112F (45C) record, and made Saturday's … Continue reading Hit the Road, Jill – June’s Reading Round-up
