July 22, 2015 In continuing last week’s “Dad the Writer,” I need to point out that keeping mentally active is not the only thing needed in order to be an artist and a parent. Yes, you need to keep sharp, but your body can suffer if you neglect it. While many of us would be […]

Life… Riffed.

We’re close to the 9th anniversary of Rifftrax!

Of course, I just spent the last week not writing as much because I was stressing about the book. It’s not the first book […]

Charcoal Streets cover


  Here’s the deal. Charcoal Streets is going to go live in two to three weeks. This is the cover for the ebook, but I still want to make sure it’s as good as possible. I’m already adding a third pair of wings since this is supposed to be a seraph and I got the lines […]
