Why is it that you blink and a whole week passes? Now I feel bad when as a teenager I used to roll my eyes when my parents and grandparents always lamented, “Where did the time go?” I’m so feeling them right now.

Like most people, I started off 2020 with a few resolutio...

Over the holidays I read The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. It’s been a while since I read one of those stories that had me captivated the way this novel did. A group of unlikely characters who built strong bonds, linking two wars that were a couple decades apart, strong...

The Air Force Birthday was yesterday, not a significant milestone year, but a marker nonetheless. As a young officer, not much was done to celebrate the date. In fact, I didn’t know much about service birthdays until I served alongside some Marines and got to witness t...

Time for this month’s Work In Progress (WIP) Update. Unfortunately, I don’t have much to report. Yes, I’ve started on Quintus: Book 1 of The Spaceblood Saga, but that’s about it. I took a little break after I completed all requirements for my Masters Degree, which, I c...

Today marks the last school district in my city to start its school year. It’s odd to me that throughout a city the schools stagger their start dates. It took three weeks to get every child back in a classroom. Where I come from, everyone started on the same day. Oh, f...
