New kitten pictures! Meet Isis, everyone. :-) I’m tired in a good way this week thanks to adopting her from a local shelter last Thursday.
It has been hard to write author updates for the blog, with the last one being in the spring. Times have been rough. I lost my father in the first week of January, and my wife lost her dad at the end of May. Besides our fathers, three friends, two aunts, and an uncle have... Continue Reading →
