Now for something completely different . . . My Alien Contact for Idiots series speculates about what sort of culture North American natives would have built if they weren’t overrun by Europeans. The books focus on the Kwakiutl tribe of Vancouver Island, whom I’m most familiar with. Today, a Kwakiutl song. The Kwakiutl Toogwid Song, […]

Effing Feline’s greatest ambition #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am the kind of amazingly complex character you authors can only dream of creating. I have more depth than any cat who ever lived. I am a stable genius, yet also a fierce hunter — and I’m humble, to boot. But am I satisfied with my perfection? Never! I have yearnings, aspirations, […]

Effing Feline’s PSA #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, hate heat. I know, I know — most cats love heat so much they’ll lie on a radiator in a sunny window. All I can say is they’ve never done it in Arizona. I tried it . . . once. Here’s what I looked like afterward. Viewer discretion advised. If you have […]

Effing Feline’s favorite holiday? #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, wish you a happy Memorial Day! Of course, that’s an American holiday. If you’re in Canada, happy belated Victoria Day. (I hope you got your garden planted.) If you’re in England, happy Spring Bank Holiday. (Do humans, and not just banks, get the day off work?) For Australians, happy Reconciliation Day. (Is […]

Effing Feline, fearless #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, ain’t afraid of nothing! Except . . . Except Ed’s office wall. He’s got all sorts of weird stuff up there, all of it guaranteed to give a cat nightmares. A fish that tastes horrible because it’s made of cedar. (I know, I tried it.) A bird with a wooden beak that […]

Effing Feline loves naps #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am about to shock you, so hold onto your hair pieces. I sometimes take naps. Most cats do, of course, but I am such an exceptional specimen, a cat who has accomplished so much, that I know you’re thinking I work 16 hours a day, every day. But I am a BIG […]

Your name is? #mfrwhooks

Today, another hook from my WIP titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding, book 5 in the Alien Contact for Idiots series. Audra Verhailey, a runaway young mother, flees with her baby from Oregon to Kwadra Island. Kwadra is an alternate Earth’s Vancouver Island. The Kwadrans “hopped” their island to our Earth when the environment of their planet […]

Effing Feline sends you allergens #8Sunday

I, Effing Feline, was delighted last week when people complained about me ending my selections from Ed’s sci fi romance, Rescuing Prince Charming, on a cliffhanger. You see, I’m not one of those spineless lap cats who seek only to please. No way! The laps I prefer belong to: People who hate cats. People who […]

Untitled Book Five #mfrwhooks

In recent posts to Book Hooks, I said I had not one but two WIPs underway. I also said that for me, writing two projects is insanely unwise. Well, one of the two  has withered away, and it’s the one I’ve been sharing. So I’m switching to the other WIP, which currently has no title, […]
