Just a quick update since I'm getting lots of questions lately. I have been getting chemotherapy treatments since my diagnosis of colon cancer three months ago. Chemo isn't fun, but I'm tolerating it pretty well, all things considered. I have a little nausea and fatigue but nothing overwhelming. I get an infusion every two weeks, … Continue reading Quick Update
I swear I am distracted by so many squirrels. I am nearing completion of Cast Down; Masked. Nearing. I had lunch today with the brilliant Book Doctor, Ms. Elizabeth Capalbo. She bailed me out when I was nearing completion of A New England Haunting and has graciously offered to make time to help me hammer … Continue reading Seven More Wicked
I have to find more ways of entertaining myself during chemo treatments.
Long ago (in a galaxy far, far away) I lived in a part of Norwalk, Connecticut called Rowayton. I was a member of a really lovely church there that celebrated Maundy Thursday. To this day it is the only church I've ever attended that had a service on the Thursday evening before Easter. It was … Continue reading Maundy Thursday

There are people out there who can't find a job. I grumble if the car made a weird noise on the drive to work. … Continue reading Grumbles
Ever watch South Park? I love South Park. You know you've really arrived when South Park makes fun of you. One of my favorite episodes is the one featuring "psychic" John Edwards. South Park is brilliant because they pack a lot of truth into their mockery. One of the scenes details how "psychics" like John … Continue reading Crystal Ball
There are some people who would do away with the Old Testament, dismissing it as irrelevant or only for the Jews. While there certainly are things in there that were just for the Jews, or just for people in general at the time, or in the specific geographical locations at the time, there is so … Continue reading Golden Calf 2.0
In 1990 I moved to the village of Rowayton, Connecticut. It's a wealthy little section of Norwalk, but a whole different world from the rest of the town. I'd never been to church before, aside from a single visit to a Methodist church when I was a kid, and maybe a family wedding or two. … Continue reading Blessing of the Animals
