A new decade

I’ve been notably absent, but I can finally tell you a bit about one of the things that’s been taking up the word quota. My first published piece of fiction appeared today at Crossed Genres, just in time for my fortieth birthday.

I managed to meet a ridiculous number of June deadlines, more of which you’ll be hearing about later, most notably two nonfiction and two fiction writing deadlines. Plus work, travel, houseguests, family emergencies… it’s been quite a month.

My mother was here for a week, and we finally got the flower baskets filled.

Adequate supervision is crucial.

I’ll be in Albuquerque for Complex Weavers very soon. Looking forward to seeing some blog readers and some old friends, and eating as much green chile as humanly possible. I do need to finish my class, but I have weeks. Right? Right.

These are the roses I want, adorning the old Stonington Point lighthouse. Anyone know what they might be?

    There’s also a Sarah Goslee published in the new July 1 edition of Clarkesworld. Woot! I’m putting links to these on my blog, I hope you don’t mind? Congratulations and happy birthday! I’ve been a lurker fan of yours and reader of StringPage for more than a decade. You’ve taught me all I know about card weaving!

    By the by, have a blast in Albuquerque. We’re all terribly jelous here, me and my two dogs, that is, we grew up on the Rio Grande. I really miss the ABQ flea market and something called a Navajo taco.
