Microfiction from Vol. 1 of my newsletter.
Earlier this week, some of the contributors at GeekDad and GeekMom have launched a new site, GeekKid!
[Spoiler alert! This post will have spoilers from the show.] Rory and I recently finished watching the BBC series Lark Rise to Candleford. It had been on my "to watch" list for years, but I waited to suggest it to Rory until we were in need of another good series to watch. I don't know how I keep getting him to agree to watch British corset dramas, but I just hope my luck there holds.
Over the past couple of years, there has been a big fuss about Marie Kondo's book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. People seem to be so taken with the thing. Does it contain the magic formula to getting and keeping my house tidy?

See what I might have said to my younger self, if I'd had the opportunity.
Every child and teen needs scientific, non-judgmental, accurate information about sex, their own sexual health, birth control, and more.
I'll be sharing my sketches with you on occasion in this irregular series, Sketches From the Ether. So far it's just pencil drawings in my sketchbook. We'll see where it takes me.
It still blows me away that my body made people. PEOPLE. Right? Some people call it "a miracle", I'm just blown away by the impressive biological processes.
I've got two books published currently. For one of them, my co-authors and I went the traditional route with traditional publishing. For the other, I self-published. Why? Because that book I wrote for myself, just for fun.
I took Spanish in school. It made the most sense, since I had already had some Spanish in elementary school, and I had a couple of Spanish-speaking people in my family.
