The Summer of relentless heat…

I could begin by using the excuse that’s it’s simply been too damn hot here at the ranch in Texas to do much of anything besides sip cool drinks, move slowly from air conditioning to air conditioning, and relax in chilly water troughs. Well, maybe the last part is a stretch, but in spite of […]

New Year, new work…

Like most of us, my days aren’t as defined. I have to remind myself it’s a New Year, one without resolutions, but full of hope.My calendar revolves around “have to do’s” and life’s obligations, but they do help me remember what day it is, most of the time. 2021 was the year I spent learning […]

AUTUMN and a bit of an update…

It finally feels there’s a snap in the air here in South Texas, the photo is of a creek in my back 40. It’s been too long, but I DO have a “good excuse, besides the fact that tech takes me forever to wrangle. I’ve been working super-hard for weeks and months at my writing, […]

Let the Games Begin…

My story, “The Contract” was such a fun one to write. A bit of a challenge as the submission guidelines presented by D&T Publishing (and you do need to heed the guidelines) didn’t allow for any relatable connection to an already existing game of any kind. The originality of the theme intrigued me, and the […]

Excited for the New Year!

Coming soon! Most of us would probably prefer not to revisit 2020, but I’m looking forward to the new year with a fresh outlook. Although many things have changed and continue to be fluid, it’s also been a great time to reflect and reconsider what truly gives us satisfaction in our lives. Don’t wait to […]
