now we are forty-one

Today I am forty-one which makes the blog/website eleven years old. I would like to apologize to the blog for neglecting it so much in recent years and missing its tenth birthday last year because we were away for my birthday. (Next year I will remember, when the blog gets to be twelve and I […]

the starless sea – us cover

Dusting off the blog to show off Doubleday‘s beautiful cover for the US edition of THE STARLESS SEA. Art by Dan Funderburgh, design by John Fontana. Many more things to follow, more covers, more keys. Will post here & elsewhere when they’re shareable. In the meantime I’ve added a page for THE STARLESS SEA over […]

birthday

Today I am 39. My grandmother used to say she was 39, every year, and when I was young and my dad turned 40 I was very confused as to how he could be older than his mother. Math is hard. Age is just a number. I believe this means the website/blog is 9 years […]

lovely, dark and deep

I took this photo in my yard. I have a yard now. Possibly obvious, but I no longer live in Manhattan. I left the city in a blur of cardboard boxes and craziness and I owe a great number of people goodbye cocktails that never happened and probably even more people a “by the way […]

All I really wanted to do myself was add 50k to this […]

autumnal

We went apple picking on Friday and did not intend to look for pumpkins but then there was the Most Perfect Pumpkin and it had to come home with us. Not even going to carve it, it is too perfect in its perfect pumpkinyness. I am so glad it is finally fall. September was a […]

hiatus time again

My brain does not like summer in general and this one in particular. It is too hot and too bright. I’m tired at odd times of day and I forget to buy almond milk for my coffee. I was already planning on curling up into my sweaters and my head in the fall but I […]

anniversary

Yesterday was our first wedding anniversary. Earlier this year we had to print out photos for our immigration interview so now they’re scattered about the apartment, popping up like mushrooms. I had a feeling we were both going to go the predictable book route for the paper anniversary gifts but Adam surprised me with the […]
