For the last five years I’ve gone to Los Angeles every February.  That started as a fan pilgrimage to a Doctor Who con, morphed into an excuse to see friends who don’t (or no longer) live near me, and in the … Continue reading

Sometimes we talk about…Skulls

Given that we live in different cities and only meet face to face twice a month to do work, most of Racheline’s and my communication is done via e-mail. We have efficient systems and it works really well, and what … Continue reading

Playlist: Lake Effect

Earlier I wrote about growing up in Rochester, where “Lake Effect” is set. Today, I’m bringing you the music of the story and of Rochester, as I know it. Most of it falls somewhere in the Irish folk/pop/rock spectrum. Most of the … Continue reading

What’s the time difference between D.C. and Pretoria?
