Change of Scenery

After working remotely for more than a year, the process of returning to the Day Job’s normal location is underway. With the office having been mostly abandoned since March 2020, the process is far more arduous than one might imagine.

While I have not missed the commute, it will be nice to return to the “normal” routine… one year at home isn’t enough to break the normalcy of nineteen years into the career after all.

Yes, I’ve been at the Day Job for just over 20 years.

It doesn’t seem possible, but here we are.

The commute means a little less me time but it also means that me time won’t be interrupted by the lingering aura of work – so that’s a plus.

Look forward to more… there’s still at least one more release to look forward to this year and who knows what’s on the horizon…

Until next time, friends… look at what’s around you, then look at your place in it. You’re an important part of that picture ❤️

Who Says You Can’t Go Home

It’s been a while but it’s summer and you know what that means…

No, I’m not talking about the fire warnings or the extreme heat or the terrible air quality (although it does mean all those things, here in the Central Valley)…

To accompany all the standard summer craziness, it’s time to add a road trip… a couple hours east of California’s backbone highway, SR 99, on a two-lane to nowhere, the last stop before you branch to either mountains or empty desert is the forgotten little town of Rio Hevrir.

That’s right.

A Darkness in the Desert, the long-awaited 5th book in The Rio Crew Novels series, is available now.

(Someone’s been waiting for it, I’m sure.)

Time to grab your favorite cold beverage, set the AC to a comfortable level, and dust off books 1-4 to refresh your memory and get ready to return to Rio Hevrir and find out what the summer has in store for the Crew…

Until next time, friends…
Life is what we make it… make it something awesome 😎
