On My Blog Right Now

Go to my blog and nominate your favorite animal or nature charity to receive donations from my royalties.


 Welcome to a website about matters close to my heart. I will write of, think about, and look at nature, at dolphins and whales, chimps and gorillas and orangutans, dogs and cats and big cats, all animals and animal lovers and the best, most humane, most free options for these animals to live and be loved. In another vein, I will chat about reading, writing, books and e books, novels and non-fiction and stories and poetry, science fiction and fantasy. And occasionally any old thing. I hope to invite other interesting people to blog about all of these things too.


Do you want to receive free short-short stories that no one in the public sees?
