But  I’m posting it here as well, as I expect to be on hand also.  🙂 Over the next few months, I’m very much looking forward to getting out of my basement office and seeing daylight.  And readers!  So here is a brief listing of where you might run into me.  For book signings, please […]

Referendum 71, Washington State

Hey. Washington voters. Can we all stop thinking about sex and talk about R-71 for a minute? And what it could mean to a lot of ‘state registered domestic partnerships’?   First of all, nothing in the referendum says anything about anyone having sex with anyone else.

Sick. Sick. Sicker, even.

Tonight I am sick.  I’ve been sick most of the week. Sneezy, itchy throat, take a pill and soldier through it sick.  But tonight, I can feel it getting into my lungs and chest instead of my head, and I know tomorrow’s going to be a horrid day. I went upstairs and tried to sleep.  […]

Procrastination

Know why I’m posting this? Because it’s easier than writing. There’s a short story one click away on my screen.  it needs to be finished.  It needed to be finished last month, and I was sure I could do it.  Today, I realized I was saying, ‘well, I’ll have it done by the end of […]

Dockyard Derby Dames

Yes. Tacoma has a roller derby team. Which is actually extremely cool, in my opinion. Robin Hobb’s ever amazing assistant has recently been donning roller skates several times a week.   A few nights ago, she added a mouth guard. And off she went to Dockyard Derby Dames bootcamp. She returned exhilarated and remarkably unbruised.  Apparently […]
