Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

August 16, 2013

I’m wanting to see Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters for two reasons:

First, because, while I’m sincerely hoping it’ll not be the dredge the first movie was, the kids and I have read all the books and progressed on to more of the author’s series, and so we need to keep up.

Second, because, what?!  Nathan Fillion’s in it?  What’s this?  I’ve seen his stuff back to Buffy (tv), but my favourite character of those he’s played is Rick Castle, and the trailer makes it look like he’s channeling a little of Rick for this part.

So we’ll see.  Here’s hoping it’ll be at least entertaining on a weekend before school starts again.

Meanwhile, I’m trying to win a prize pack over at, so here’s that link (contest shortly to close):

See you later!



Chicken Soup at Bakka Magazine

March 17, 2009

Recently my flash fiction story Chicken Soup was published over at Bakka Magazine.  Have a look – and a laugh!

I am now a member of Northography, that innovative group of writers from Minnesota.  You can check out my latest poem, Raise Up High, there.  It responds to a Stimulus picture of our new President Obama standing with his arm raised high.

INteresting, eh?


January 12, 2009

Recently I’ve submitted a humorous piece of flash fiction to the Editor over at Bakka online.  There’s a good chance it shall get published, and hopefully soon, so I’ll post a link to that here if and when it does.  I’d be pleased as punch to add a story to my list of published works.

Today I sent an article about achieving your goals – specifically, the fourth (and final) step in doing so – to a print magazine that’s fairly new to me: Going Bonkers.  I like their idea of being “a self help magazine with a sense of humor.”

I am about to write and submit a poem for a soon to be released commemorative poetry chapbook that is to be given to some of the sponsors of the world premiere of Brian Keene’s play Terminal (at the Paul Bunyan Playhouse in Bemidji).  I am also working on a piece to be submitted to The Talking Stick (a publication from the Jackpine Writers’ Bloc of Minnesota).  The former requires a $1 fee; but as any profits they make are to be donated to the local library, I figure I’m donating to the library system up there (yay, libraries!).

Kicking it into high gear –


A Little More

Recently I linked my WordPress and LinkedIn accounts, so if there is anything pertinent to LinkedIn, I’ll tag it thusly and you’ll see it pop up on my LinkedIn Profile.

Just like this one.  😉

Hello world!

November 4, 2008

Welcome to my new blog at

My interests are wide, rather ecclectic, and I’m not your typical Minnesotan.  I’m happily married with two young ones whom I homeschool whilst I pursue writing, period and fandom costumry, studying community and native plant gardening, and basic human family and living structures, among many other things.

Glad to have you here.  🙂
