I am officially in a comic book (aka graphic novel)! In print!!! A few years ago I backed a Kickstarter campaign to be in a new Sherlock Holmes and John Watson comic book “Watson and Holmes” created by Brandon Perlow and Paul Mendoza.

Celebrating the holidays a little early tonight with the niece and nephew, as Santa drove by the house with the Fire Department and who doesn’t want to see Santa? This year I received candy (thanks Julian!) and a Doctor Who TARDIS mug and a Doctor key chain (number 10 of course) (thanks Louisa!). Its wonderful […]
My new business Second Goldfish is now LIVE! After having worked on it for the past few years, its wonderful to see it LIVE! Granted it still needs a few tweaks, but she is good to go. But what is Second Goldfish you are asking? Its an online book club with live discussions, in other […]
