I've done some redecorating of my office. It looks more like the office of a sci-fi writer.

Everyone does something stupid in their lives. Last week I added another to my already long list. I'm sharing my pain with you to serve as a cautionary tale and also to ensure I never do it again.

I hope you enjoy Gabriel vs The Ghost Peppers

Nectarines, Free Verse, and Rejection

I blogged about how my first piece of writing was accepted—and then rejected, by a popular children's magazine. I've never forgotten that poem about my grandma's nectarines, and as I sat here eating some lovely nectarines, I decided to dig it out and share it with readers on my blog.
