My first guest post, about how my life as a musical theater composer influenced a novel about remembering past lives.
Ditto, about how science influences my novels: my parents met working on The Manhattan Project in Los Alamos!
Walking to work by Lincoln Center in NYC every morning, I was prompted to offer this free story during Fashion Week: how Neanderthals invented Fashion!
With all the re-thinking and rebelling against cut-and-dry book genres these days, this guest blog invites independent authors to invent themselves through a self-designed sub-genre. Karma Lit, anyone?

Musings on a myriad of new fossil discoveries this year.
Guest post on Roz Morris’ wonderful blog where writers discuss how music influences their writing. An unveiling of hidden structures in 1001.
Having cycled through fave topics of history, music, books, science, reincarnation, and the writing process, the year ends with my first guest post about Arabic fiction and The Thousand and One Nights. Hosted by my amazing friends at the Visionary Fiction Alliance.
