I'm editing a short story to send to my publisher.

The main character looks like Shogo Makishima from Psycho-Pass in my head (though I've never seen the anime).

Here's how it starts:

My recent release of Public Enemy, Undercover Lover is a monumental feat for me. Not because it’s my first release or a milestone number (though 12 is pretty cool). It was the first time I had two distinct story ideas, neither of which I thought could flush out a full...

Galaxy Con was my favorite kind of success because not only did I have a hoot as a geek, I also met a ton of readers, made some new fans, and SOLD OUT of copies of Coming Up for Air.

I dressed up as Deanna Troi the first day, Ms. Marvel the second, and Captain Cold the...

I’m doomed to chilly weather for all my events this year, it seems, because it was rainy and cool at Fall Con at the MN State Fair Grounds but still a wonderful time.
