Radio interviews

This photo is from a few weeks ago, just after I bought a digital camera. Mr. Cat appointed himself the guardian of the box that the camera came in. My living room floor is often this messy, especially in warm weather when my office upstairs gets too hot. I’ll bring a pile of papers downstairs, and pretty soon they’ve multiplied…

TBR list, etc.

My everlasting To Be Read list has grown again, as it is wont to do.  I’ve ordered Linda Clare’s The Fence My Father Built, and I’ve pre-ordered J.

A sneak peek at Sparrows

Not so very long ago, I was still arguing with myself about how to write this crazy novel about extremist homeschoolers and the literature prof who shakes up their lives.  The time for arguing with myself is over.  The story is out of my hands and in the hands of advance readers like Cindy Kunsman.  At her blog, Under Much…
