Fickle Science or Can I have my damn steak or not?

Sometimes, science is a fickle bitch. Okay, that’s not really true. Science is just fine. It’s steady and consistent. Science only ever really changes when you find yourself in weird corners of the universe like the event horizon of a black hole, or the quantum vacuum, or literally anywhere in …

The Mysterious, Marvelous, Mighty Pepperoni Rolls

Come with me… and you’ll be… in a world of pure imagination. Take a look… and you’ll see… Pepperoni Rolls for your mastication. Ahem… that was weird. Recently I wrote about how a part of my life was fundamentally changed when I discovered that my family’s kolache recipe was ACTUALLY …

Chapter 1: Get a Job — Chronicles of Tyria

Tide of Shadows is a serial story set in the world of Tyria, from the online MMOs Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. I participated in and won a short story contest in mid 2019 through the fan site, Chronicles of Tyria. CoT is officially sponsored by the game’s developer, ArenaNet, so I thought this was pretty cool. My prize was to be offered a position as one of their writers. And so was born the story of Captain Jos Blackfyre, the captain of the shipping vessel Hiraeth. You can get the latest episodes/chapters over on Chronicles of Tyria.

Captain Jos Blackfyre and the crew of the shipping vessel Hiraeth need a job. But, when her First Mate Nexx has a suggestion, she’s not sure that the quick swig of rum she had for breakfast is going to be enough.
