No, I’ve not let this corner of the web go feral – I’ve merely been recovering from my recent speaking tour, which included a pit-stop at Legare’s in Portland and appearances at the 38th Willamette Writers Conference.

The three-day confab assembled the Pacific Northwest’s best and brightest writers, from inklings to page-borne pensioners, hobbyists and hacks alike. And it was a pleasure to meet every goddamn one of them.
