What does it say about me as an author when I have yet to participate in a #BannedBooksWeek series?
In fact, it wasn’t until this morning that I learned what #MSWL was.
The current political climate in the United States is horrific, to say the least. As the frequency of the call for book bans from the Republican party rises, it’s no wonder that I feel less confident, and let’s be honest – less safe, in the idea of opening my own independent bookstore here in Arizona, much less anywhere else in the country.
“This is a dangerous time for readers and the public servants who provide access to reading materials. Readers, particularly students, are losing access to critical information, and librarians and teachers are under attack for doing their jobs.”
– Deborah Caldwell-Stone, director of the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom

About the Author
Father, Author, Professional Procrastinator
Hmm. What should you know about me? I wonder. AHA!! I got it! I…(a few hours later)… am the author of the picture book Over The Creek (2019). I like blogging. I’m a professional procrastinator (oh, come on – all of us are). Oh, and I am a proud father of a really cool daughter. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be here writing weird posts and posts about books and writing related stuff.
Writing advice? Um. Let’s see…my advice would be … poof!! … cliffhanger!!
