"Family at Dinner" Now Playing

I learned from L.L.Soares, who also has a story in this issue, that Shroud Magazine issue #6 has hit the newstands! My short story, "Family at Dinner" is featured, along with a number of other fantastic New England authors in this one. Check out the cover, done by tremendous cover artist Steven Gilberts, whom I had the pleasure of hanging out with this past Necon. Check it out, I believe it should be in most Barnes & Noble magazine racks. Let me know if you find it and what you think of the story.

College Bound / High School Bound

Sigh... and Yay... life is full of the happy and sad, even if both are the same thing sometimes.

Last week, we drive my son Andrew to school, where he's beginning his freshman year of college, majoring in Computer Science. One of those... what's the expression... I forget, where it's happy and exciting and sad and scary. He's doing well, starting classes this week, surrounded by like-minded folks. Best of luck Andrew, we love you and are immeasurably proud of you.

Speaking of starting classes and being immeasurably proud, my daughter Amanda has begun her first day of high school today. Yikes! One in college, another in high school. I'm sure she's nervous, but she'll kick butt. She always does. Kicks butt and takes numbers. :-)

Black Belt

Late but hearty congratulations to my son Andrew (and his friend Jon!) for earning his black belt in Kempo Karate last weekend. He's heading off to college in a week and a half and wanted to earn that highest of belts before, and they made it, after a grueling two-hour trial. Nice job, boys, well-earned and you deserve mondo kudos!
