One Week Away!

January 26th, 2022 In just ONE WEEK from today, I’ll be making an appearance at Labyrinth Puzzle Rooms in Lakeville from 4 to 8 pm, to talk about and sell my work, and to announce my next novel! On top of the announcement of the title and release date of my upcoming book, I’ve createdContinue reading “One Week Away!”

Delusional Resolutions

January 24th, 2022 Have you ever started a day by telling yourself that this is the day you’ll get better, and at the end of it you’re not? If so, then this one’s for you. When I was a mess, I would often have conversations with future me. I would say, “Hey. It’s me. I’mContinue reading “Delusional Resolutions”

What if God was (not) one of us?

January 23rd, 2022 I wrote a little last week about this book, “God Is Not One,” by Stephen Prothero, and now that I’m finished I could not recommend it more. Learning about all the things the world believes in makes you believe in the world more. The book is both expansive and intimate, covering theContinue reading “What if God was (not) one of us?”

The Fastest-Growing Religion

January 18th, 2022 God Is Not One has been one of the most enlightening and empowering books I have read. Religion isn’t going away. I’m not a religious person, but I take it as a personal responsibility to learn about the people I live with on this planet. Like most people, I always felt religionContinue reading “The Fastest-Growing Religion”

Dennis Book Club

January 16th, 2022 Today, at work, some of my co-workers, organically, spontaneously, decided to choose one of my books and started a book club around it. It was one of the neatest, sweetest things I have ever, as a writer, watched unfold around me, and I literally did nothing to make it happen. But IContinue reading “Dennis Book Club”

My Covid Diary

January 14th, 2022 I just made it through my CDC-recommended quarantine. I think most of the people who have had covid (and talk about it) share their physical symptoms. Because of this one-dimensional barometer, you’ll find other people minimize what it is that happens when you’re infected. By that measure, I had sniffles and coughs.Continue reading “My Covid Diary”

Nothing Around Us Changes

January 12th, 2022 Weirdly enough, I finally got covid, but that’s not what’s inspiring me to write tonight. (Presuming nothing terrible happens to me over the next few days, I’ll probably write about that later.) No, I’ve been quarantined all alone in the bedroom (with occasional visits from my doctor, who is actually my dog),Continue reading “Nothing Around Us Changes”

An Evening w/ Dennis Vogen & Labyrinth Puzzle Rooms

January 7th, 2022 I was hinting at something fun yesterday, and I am so happy to announce it today: I’m doing a collaboration with an amazing local business in Lakeville, Labyrinth Puzzle Rooms! I met with them yesterday and they have the kindest and most radical idea: instead of their lobby being solely a placeContinue reading “An Evening w/ Dennis Vogen & Labyrinth Puzzle Rooms”

Circus Wisdom

January 4th, 2022 When I was teased, or made fun of, or laughed at growing up, my dad would tell me to laugh with them. Or, if I could, laugh at myself before they had the chance. That sentiment is terrible for a child. But it’s advice I take more to heart every day IContinue reading “Circus Wisdom”
