People of Interest Episode 2: James Taylor Jr.

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

Amidst the first half of the “Gaylias: Operation Thunderspell” book tour these past couple of months, I’ve had the distinct (questionable) pleasure of hanging with some youthful (nefarious) underlings.  One who comes immediately to mind for reasons I can’t fathom (desperation) is James Taylor Jr., who I’ve actually known much longer than six months.  Unfortunately, for legal reasons, I’m unable to discuss the nature of the friendship due to doctor/patient privileges.  That being said…

Welcome to:

People of Interest: Episode 2

A good friend gave me a sweatshirt for Christmas a couple of years ago that has “Careful or you’ll wind up in my novel” printed on it, which I love!  And as several of my friends have found out from book to book, it’s kinda true.  Anyway, I’ve been wearing it again since we started getting the cooler weather here in Michigan and even had it on at the airport while traveling to one of the recent signings.  Most folks just chuckle when they read the shirt, but then come the questions.

People of Interest (Episode 1): Edwin Wendler

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

This was previously published on MySpace and Facebook in August, but since I’m finally continuing on with the series, I thought I’d publish it here before the second one is ready.  So without further ado…

Not many people know who I am and, let’s face it, that;s annoying.  And I’m told there are many others out there who feel the same way–that it’s annoying not many people know who I am.  Hey, stay with me here.  I was also going to say that there are a number of other folks who we should get to know, too.  Let’s call them “people of interest” and introducing them to you is what I’m going to use my blog for every now and then.  Maybe once a week.  Or whenever I can.  Entirely at my whim, of course.

So, welcome to:

The Privileged Life of Cents and Sensibility

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

It’s occurred to me again over the past few weeks that I lead a fairly privileged life.  And no, it doesn’t mean I’m rich.  I’m not, at least in a monetary sense.  My last royalty check was around the $80 mark and I’m currently making less than my first job after I graduated from college.  But, that being said, I do have a job, a roof over my head, food in my refrigerator (when I actually manage to go grocery shopping), a partner who I adore despite his psychotic grandmonster who’d like to have me sleeping with the fishes and parents who have taken a huge, supportive interest in my life.
