  • Behind the Door # 7

    There’s so much to say this week! First, the stuffy caladrius winner for last week was Kristin Peterson of Puerto Rico, Kristin– I hope you got it by now! 🙂 A Better World officially comes out today — Tuesday, April 9! But because traffic in LA is nuts and events on weekends are more accessible,…

  • Behind the Door #5

    It’s me! I’m back! Or else in your spam. Happy Easter. I hope you and yours are all excellent. At this very moment, my husband and eldest are boxing with some director friends in Echo Park and my youngest is sleeping. A great time to write a newsletter. Stuffies! I’m using a random number generator…

  • Behind the Door #5

    It’s the fifth installment of this newsletter!  Good news — so far two winners have been drawn. Jim Freund, of Brooklyn New York and Erik Ferguson (who writes as Keech Ballard), of Roswell, Georgia should by now have received their stuffies. Next drawing is next week.  A Better World comes out soon! A reminder on…

  • Behind the Door #4

    Hi, folks!  Good news! I’ve drawn two winners for Caladrius stuffies. As soon as I get their okays, I’ll announce their names in the next newsletter. I’ll keep drawing emails until publication day, April 9.  Below is Holly the Rabbit, under attack! Never bring pets to Plymouth Valley! The tour is shaping up– Saturday, April…

  • Into the Labyrinth, #3

    Hi folks! Lots of things happened in the last two weeks. I went to Nashville to meet up with an old college friend. Two highlights were The Time Jumpers at 3rd and Lindsley (great band!) and a bar on the East Side called Dee’s. Apropos of the era in which we live, there was also…

  • Into the Labyrinth #2

    Hi, folks! This one’ll be quick. First– friends, family, and fans– thank you for signing up. I appreciate it. I’m glad you’re here.  I just finished reading Isabel Allende’s HOUSE OF SPIRITS. It’s great, and reminded me a lot of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s 100 YEARS OF SOLITUDE. I bookmarked a passage I thought was brilliant and had…

  • Into the Labyrinth #1

    I finally named my newsletter! And maybe I can cut and paste from mailjet?? We shall see. Hi, folks!I hope you’ve had a good month. It’s been eventful over here. For instance, it’s raining inside my garage office, thanks to LA’s atmospheric river. JT and I have been trying to find the source of the…

  • Evil Dead II (1987)

    I thought I’d seen this Sam Rami movie, but it turns out that Friday night’s screening at Vidiots in Eagle Rock was new to me. And I loved it. When I was in middle school, I rented Evil Dead (1981), directed by Sam Rami, and it upset me. For one, tree rape. For another, I…

  • Happy New Year!

    I’m writing this from my sister and brother -in-law’s house in Baltimore. They are great hosts to us every year. My sister in law has a giant library full of all the books I’ve been meaning to read but haven’t. I typically spend entire days perusing. I prefer the East Coast. Things move faster here…
