About the Various category

The Various category is for, well, anything that doesn’t belong in some other category. I’m new to general blogging, so I’m not sure what I’ll wind up putting here. This category, and maybe other categories, are likely to evolve as I go along.

Dad passed away

My father passed away last Wednesday, Sept. 8. WWII vet, engineer, singer, spiritual seeker, and generally great guy. I can’t complain too much; he was 97, in decent health until the last week, and being well looked after by the Redstone assisted living home, but still … We all miss him.

In Your Write Mind 2019

June 28, 2019 – I had a good day at Seton Hill University’s In Your Write Mind workshop. I met agents Chris Kepner and Natalie Kimber, attended interesting sessions, and chatted with other friendly authors. I recommend this annual event for any author! http://inyourwritemind.setonhill.edu/
