Whenever my son goes binging all (ALL) the Power Rangers shows, I get an itch to make my own comedic take. I'm about the right age to play a teen in a 90s show, too. I'll be 35 in October.

Sunday nightmare fuel.






Sunday nightmare fuel.





This is a Slickhead fish. They reside at the bottom of the ocean.









Despite seeming super creepy to look at, they're actually very useful to us. They and other deep sea fish consume over a million tons of CO2 each year.

Using beta readers with your darlings.





I'm reading through and pulling all my beta reader feedback into a Word doc. This has been a fantastic process. So many things to ponder, so many times I was nodding with a smile when the desired effect came across.









Definitely more work to be done, but I have so much faith in this story now. So much faith in my characters. Having a beta readership was one of the best things I could have done for this book series.

My wife and I are celebrating 15 years of marriage today. The marriage is legally old enough to drive now. I wrote a little something in honor of the surreal occasion.
