On the heels of last month’s post where I talked about some of my other interests besides digital forensics and cyber incident response, I was beyond excited to receive a contract for a new article I’d pitched about how I […]
Last month’s freelance update served as a little bit of a reintroduction to who I am and what I do. In the future, I’ll talk about the work I’m doing for various clients, as well as reading I’m doing and […]

If you’ve read my last few blogs, you know that I’ve been in a deep process of rethinking, well, just about everything: how I work, how I communicate, how I approach different things. Layoffs are among those earth-shattering life events […]

I had big plans for Thanksgiving week. With the Thursday and Friday off for the holiday, and my sons off from school on Wednesday as well, I opted to take the entire week off, myself. I had Big Plans for […]
Many (though not all) of my stories start with a place I visit or see in pictures, which strikes me a particular way. In “God’s Country,” out in Nosetouch Press’ Asterisk Anthology Vol. 2, the story started with a swathe […]
