Love and Respect

I have another post on my author blog about the most recent violence. You wouldn’t think that’s the topic from the title “Love and Respect“, but that’s kind of the point. This is my second post in a row about violence — and also about the human potential for good. If you missed the previous post, written in the wake of the Orlando shootings, it’s titled: “don’t kill them“. I need to make an effort to blog about other things. Like knitting, dogs, gardening, and the fictional worlds I’m writing about where no one is killed. If you wonder why my novels are getting lighter, it’s because the world is getting darker. If you feel the need for some escapism, my latest novel, If Wishes Were Spaceships, will do it for you. A sequel is in the works. I think, with the two posts linked above, I’ve said everything I can say about killing. I’ll say it again, but I need to write about good for a while.
