Hey, friends! My four-year-old fell asleep while I was reading to her (The Lorax, which I was worried would freak her out—apparently not!), and I’m blogging from her room since it’s the quietest place in the house.

Mornin’, all! Your old friend JJ here, comin’ atcha from my crib. One daughter’s in pre-school at the moment; my wife and son are on a mini-date (I lost any gangsta vibe with the semi-colon, didn’t I?).

Hey, friends. You guys know by now what a complete and utter cheeseball I am. I’m an unabashed fan of books, as well as a writer of them, and I’m not skilled at feigning aloofness when talking about the stuff I love to read. Which explains why I sound like a blathering lunatic on the […]Read more "Pod of Horror is BACK (featuring interviews with Bev Vincent and Me!)"
