My very-first-ever reader survey ended last week, and I’m so thankful to each and every one of you who participated! Conducting a reader survey was a new idea to me, though definitely one of those “why didn’t I think of this before” type of new ideas. Here’s what I learned from listening to you: Though […]
Okay, I’ll admit that title is probably a bit misleading. Because I’m not going to tell you some magic formula that will make readers flock to your next blog post. I’m just going to tell you what I learned today because I think it’s pretty awesome. Pretty awesome in that “Duh, why didn’t I think […]
Let’s say life is like a boxing match, and last week nearly TKO’ed me. Actually, it felt more like a cage match from which I couldn’t escape – so I clung to the sides like Spider-Man and waited for the bell. Things started out just fine, albeit a little more hectic than usual. On Friday […]
I didn’t mean to give you a David Bowie earworm with that title, so sorry. Please read on nonetheless. In the kind of world we live in today – one where we wake up to news of crazed gunmen and mass murder – we need to champion the good in people. We need to acknowledge […]

I’ve been so busy with the launch of my book and planning Wonder Boy’s 10th birthday party, that I just realized I never posted about Wonder Woman. No worries though.
