About the Author

I’m one of the rare writers who manages to make a living solely through writing. My freelance business pays the bills, so I can spend my free time writing novels.

As a neurodivergent writer, I’m fascinated by the intersections among neurodivergence, creativity, and the process of creation. I’m always looking for new answers to the question, “How do we turn creative inspiration into concrete results – and become better people along the way?”

When I’m not writing, I’m coaching at Boundless Winterguard, or spoiling my three cats, three nieces, and nephew.

About This Blog

I started blogging in 2007 or thereabouts. For a long time, this blog served as a dumping ground for odd ideas and random thoughts I found funny.

Recently, I’ve been focusing its contents a bit more. You’ll find advice on fiction writing, freelance writing, harnessing creativity, and managing various forms of neurodivergence.

…You’ll also find the occasional oddball post. Like my series on the value of Girl Scout handbooks as collectibles, or my how-to guide on using Brodart book covers, or that time I catalogued the animals that old books are made from.

I also occasionally drop book suggestions, like these books for figure skaters, these books for kids who read way above grade level, and these “inappropriate” books for kids.

In case you’ve deduced I love books, I do. I love them so much I also wrote a handy guide on how to destroy them.

Once in a while, I’ll dust off my law degree and break down a legal question I’m seeing get a lot of coverage without a lot of understanding, like 2018’s kerfuffle over Gamble.

Sometimes, I’m just out to amuse myself with snark, and sometimes it amuses other people, too: Like my Five Reasons I Hate Les Miserables – inexplicably, my single most popular blog post of all time.
