Hello Bloglandia! Before we get to the guts of this quick post, a little reminder because more than a few people have been scratching their heads over this one... The Undead Mr. Tenpenny will be available as both an ebook and a paperback. in fact, all my books are in paperback format except the Osteria … Continue reading Mr. Tenpenny Makes His Artistic Debut!
Hello Bloglandia! It's that time of the week when I've gone scouting around the neighborhood (because where else am i going to go?) to find something that will make you grin. This week's photos not only should bring a smile to your face, but might also make you feel like you've escaped your home and … Continue reading A Friday Smile – Part 6
Here's the deal. I had plans to finish out the last few days of my Irish Adventure with Finn McSpool (I love that autocorrect now recognizes "McSpool"!) over the next couple weeks and then continue on with my regular Saturday Finn-filled posts.

Geez, that does sound introspective doesn't it? … Continue reading Looking Forward, Looking Back

I'm hoping my fabulous readers can help de-wonkify this … Continue reading Time for You to Help the Wonky Windmill

If you've been keeping track (and even I can't keep track on most days), this is my fourth show this year: two showings with the Clackamas County Arts Alliance (one of which … Continue reading Come See Me On Broadway!
Normally when I hear the phrase "One man's junk is another man's treasure" I think, nope, it's all junk and perhaps Mr. Another Man needs some intervention for his hoarding issues.
