#FridayThoughts to #FridayReads: Hang out with Aunty Ida


We’ve somehow gotten to the end of the week, and Aunty Ida wants to hang out with you this weekend. OK, not quite hang out. Rearrange your brain-parts.

Same thing.

#WednesdayWisdom: Read one of my books!


They’ll make you smarter! Well, they probably won’t, but they’re fun.

And weird.

What more could you want?!? Fine maybe a lot of things but the books are good too.

And I’m even FREE!!!!

#FridayThoughts: Free read! And also it’s weird!


It’s been a WEEK, as you know, so today my only thought is this: Amazon has finally price-matched my short story collection, Better Living Through GRAVY and Other Oddities, so grab one! They’re quick, odd, fun reads, just right for a little distraction.

And have a great Friday!

Grab me, I’m FREE! (It’s a link for Better Living Through GRAVY and Other Oddities.)

#WednesdayWisdom: Read a book. Specifically mine.


Not going to pretend I can write a normal post today so…just get Aunty Ida. You’ll like her.


I mean…as long as she stays out of your brain.

#TuesdayThoughts: Buy my books.


I don’t have much to say today given all that’s going on, so instead, check out my books. Buy them.

Even read them!

You know you want to. Maybe sorta.

#AccountaClub? NAH! Shameless Self-promotion!


I have books! You should read them. They’re like hanging out with me, only weirder!

And I have others! Here they are.

This collection of short stories should be free, and it is from other sellers! Like:

Want it free from Amazon? Let them know!



So it’s May, and the A to Z Blogging Challenge is history. I didn’t to well this year, falling down on the visits, and I’m not sure if I’ll do it again next year.

But that is quite a way away, so we’ll see.

The blogging part went OK, I basically wrote mostly what I would have written anyway, given the mood, so that’s good.

It’s a quick one today, April felt long and short all at the same time, and while you’re missing me (how could you not be?) check out my books.

So THESE books are my books. Did I take a shortcut today?



#AtoZChallenge: Ida


Sorry. She just won’t let “I” pass without getting her due. Aunty Ida, that is.

Who is Aunty Ida, you ask conveniently hypothetical reader? Why she’s a brilliant scientist slightly more, um, well, enthusiastic than she should be.

Don’t tell her I said that.

Her bad side is a place you do not want to be. For sure.

While fictional, I’m not sure Aunty Ida is entirely fictional. Sometimes I feel as though she’s out there, somewhere, in a parallel somewhere or another, dictating her stories to me through the distance of space and time and reality.

If anyone could, she could.

For the writers among us, do you have characters like Ida? Ones who boss you, who tell you what’s what? Who demand your attention and their spotlight on the page?

Want to meet Aunty Ida? Here she is.

Gone hearing watchin’


If you miss me, grab one of my books!
