Much love to Denise Kiernan. Loving it so far.

So glad you’re digging it. I expect a full report later.

daggyland:

It’s a long story, but when we were first married Denise and I lived overseas in Italy, where she worked covering soccer for sports organizations like ESPN. We first lived in Rome, then moved to a small town an hour north. The countryside was exactly what the travel magazines depict: olive groves…

YES. So thrilled to announce my fabulous husband’s latest publication, “The Marshall of the Borgo.” 

Yes, it’s about that time to hit the road. Here are the cities I’ll be visiting in the coming months. Check back for additional dates. Hope to see some of you out on the road!

How did I not realize that snails are magical and wondrous? Where are my fantasy novels about wide-eyed snail protagonists on quests?

These are the dreamiest photos that ever did dream.

Snails in love…

Oh how I wish I could hear how they reacted to that. Or perhaps it was just stunned silence. Go, Mayim! Bring it, math girls!
