Writing Process: A Blog Hop

I was recently invited by Elizabeth Caulfield Felt, author of Syncopation: A Memoir of Adele Hugo and The Stolen Golden Violin, to participate in a blog hop requiring me to answer four questions about my writing process. Syncopation is the fictional autobiography of the youngest of Victor Hugo’s children, and The Stolen Golden Violin is […]

There and Back Again: My Journeys With Tolkien

I saw the first of Peter Jackson’s three Hobbit films last week on opening day, and since then I’ve been reading the reviews and reactions to it–some glowing, some scathing. Over on Facebook, I posted my own brief review (I was utterly charmed by it), but the rather polarized response this film has received got […]

Spring Updating

Yes, spring is in full swing, but the thought of cleaning doesn’t quite appeal. Instead I thought I’d post an update on goings on since my last general blog post. Much of the new year has thus far been taken up with work on my new novel, a psychological thriller of sorts about Lady Godiva […]

Author Interview: Bernard Cornwell

On January 17, Death of Kings, the sixth book in Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories, will be published in the U.S. (published in the U.K. last September). About seven years ago, I interviewed Mr. Cornwell shortly after the release of the first book in that series, The Last Kingdom, and I thought it would be […]

Old and New

With 2011 winding down, I thought I’d spew a few thoughts before entering the new year… Back at the end of October, I attended the World Fantasy Convention in San Diego, where I was very happy to receive contributor copies of Allen K’s Inhuman Magazine #5.  The issue contains my story “The Lion of Orkahaugr,” […]

Midsummer Missive

With summer in full swelter, here are a few updates about recent items of note and upcoming fun… First, as reported in my last general blog post, the Historical Novel Society Conference in June was amazing; it continues to inspire me. I’ve updated the Gallery page of my website with a small sampling of my […]

Historical Novel Society Conference Recap

As the weekend comes to a close, this year’s Historical Novel Society conference has now itself become a part of history. But like those bygone eras we love to read about in novels, the weekend was full of moments I’ll revisit in the months to come as a source of ongoing inspiration. And that’s perhaps […]

Updates, Conventional and Unconventional

I hope folks have been enjoying the ZOUNDS! posts, which I’ve been managing to write with some degree of frequency.  It’s been a while since my last regular blog post, but I’ve finally got several items worth mentioning… First, on the convention front, two big updates. World Fantasy Convention: I’m happy to report that I […]

Author Interview: Connie Willis

Connie Willis is currently nominated for what would be her eleventh Hugo Award and her seventh Nebula Award for her two-volume World War II time-travel novel, Blackout and All Clear.  The Nebulas will be awarded later this month and the Hugos in August.  In the mean time, I thought I’d share an interview I conducted […]

Convening in 2011

In past years, two of my favorite conventions have been Readercon and WisCon.  Unfortunately I’ll be missing both cons this year (one for the happy occasion of attending my sister’s wedding!), but I certainly plan to return to them in 2012. I will, however, be attending several conferences and conventions over the rest of the year, […]
