I’ve just added a blog post titled “Amazon and Authorship Credit” at my AmazonCentral page. It discusses how the Amazon.com site sometimes blurs the roles of those associated with making a book, for example, author and illustrator. Being both an author and illustrator, I can speak to the issue from several different perspectives.
Writing in a wide range of genres shapes my reading. I’ve written trade books, textbooks, a children’s opera libretto, poetry, search engine optimized articles, software content, picture books, and am planning a fantasy quintology. Or pentology. We’ll see.
I’m also a reading clinician, which has led me to give a lot of thought to how texts offer meaning to readers and how readers go about understanding texts.
So welcome to my blog. Here I’ll record some of my discoveries, observations, and thoughts about reading. I prefer dialogue to monologue, so feel free to add your thoughts on the topic of the moment.

Because I write on a wide range of subjects—from slang to Serbia, from Tom Swifties to Tinkertoys®, from poetry to plasticine, from disabilities to dulcimers, from Bag Balm® to bay leaves, from homeschools to Hephaestus—I do a great amount of research.
I’ve created this blog to record what I’ve discovered that’s worth knowing about, as well as the “must to avoid’s.”
