Good Morning, Tacoma! Ready for a Riddle?

It’s 1 PM and the second set of clues for the second book are now added!  No finders have RSVP’d so I think the first book is still out there!  Good Luck!   It’s been a bit drizzly and gray outside. Perfect weather for curling up by the fire with a book, as all bookish… Continue Reading

Pssst! Tacoma? Are you still awake?

Yeah, me too.  Hey, did you do Monkeyshines this year?  You know, that cool thing where anonymous people hide all sorts of little glass treasures everywhere, and people get up at dawn to search for them. I hope you did. I didn’t.  Overslept.  That’s life.  Write all night, oversleep and miss Monkeyshines. But . .… Continue Reading

Tacoma, are you up for this?

So, to recap, the order is: The Farseer Trilogy The… Continue Reading

Hola a todos!

Yes, that is me, tottering into attempts at Spanish!  I expect it will be fully as awful as my attempts at French, but the world will know I have tried to break my monolingual bonds! And why Spanish?  Because at the end of this month, Office Kat and I intend to embark on another adventure… Continue Reading
