  • So I Was Reading Today

    It seems like all I do anymore is read, sleep, write, and drink coffee. But, reading is always at the top of the list for me lately. Maybe because I start my day by reading, or because I only read non-fiction anymore, (the paradox of a fiction writer who doesn’t read fiction), whatever the reason, […]
