This blog is for writers.

I post reviews of serious books by independent authors. I examine the facets of our craft, both as observed in my own work and in the work of others. Media, politics, international affairs all have a home here but aren’t guaranteed respect. I like music but I’m tired of noise and I’m tired of nonsense. I welcome contributions, requests for reviews, and sensible observations. Please don’t bother me with poor grammar, whining, or arguments for fewer doors and armed teachers at school.

When not writing here, my pen carves fiction. Lately, I’m at work on smart middle grade. I invite you to check out my backlist of satire below.
