Space is Big Storybundle

March 5, 2023

I’m pleased to say that SFWA picked up one of my books, Primary Inversion, for their Space is Big storybundle. Yay!

Here is the info:

Space is Big – Curated by Michael Mammay and the SFWA

The late, great, Douglas Adams wrote: “Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.” Perhaps the only thing bigger than space itself are the stories that take place within it, and in the latest bundle curated by SFWA, we have 15 great ones for you at one low price. We hope you’ll join us for this entertaining ride between the stars.

For this bundle, the SFWA Independent Authors Committee had the pleasure of sorting through over nearly a hundred excellent submissions! It was tough, but we narrowed our selection down to the ones we thought you’d enjoy the most.

For more info about the books, see

Happy New Year!

Signing/Panel, Dec 14 2022

December 9, 2022

I’m doing a signing/panel next week on Wednesday, Dec 14, 2022 at 7:00 pm in the Port Jefferson Library, NY. It’s with two other authors, Sarah Beth Durst and Kelley Skovron.

I hope you can come by!

If you think you will, please do register at the address for the library:

You can do a walk in instead of registering, and many people do. However, that means that they don’t know how many will show up or even if anyone will come. Kelly Skovron has to travel from Washington D.C. to Long island, a several day trip for her, with the associated costs, so if they don’t get enough pre-registrations, she may not be able to come.

Sarah and I will be there regardless because we are local, but it would be lovely if they had enough sign-ups that they felt okay about asking Kelley to come.

Here’s the full address for the library:

150 East Main Street
Port Jefferson, NY 11777
Phone: (631) 509-5707

Garrison Keillor birthday piece

November 8, 2022

Well, this was a cool birthday present. Garrison Keillor mentioned me in his website, A Prarie Home Companion. Here is the link.

I’ve always loved his work. I love the way he talks and the subjects he talks about. He also writes bestselling books, including his Lake Wobegon series. I wasn’t sure whether to include a picture of his books, of him, or of his site. You can get the site from the above link. Both his portrait and the book cover are great, though, so I included them both.

Walter Day Trading Card interview

May 10, 2022

I did an interview with the Walter Day author trading card folks as a special for my trading card (how cool is that, having an author trading card!). It’s about my writing process and also what it means to be a writer with what’s known as stealth dyslexia.

Here is the link.
