Daddy’s Top-Ten Childbirth Freak-Outs (Pt. 1 of 2)

Zoe at 2 years old

Earlier in 2012, I had my first memoir/humor book published called “PregMANcy: A Dad, A Little Dude and a Due Date,” published by Chalice Press.

PregMANcy: A Publishers Weekly Review (Shameless Plug)

I realized that I never actually posted the review from Publishers Weekly of PregMANcy. For those unfamiliar, PW is kind of the industry standard for distributors, bookstore owners and other buyers to decide what is worth picking up.

PregMANcy, the Interview (Patheos Book Club Q & A)

We finally made it to the Oregon Coast yesterday. I took some pictures in the redwood forest that I’ll share soon, but this post isn’t about that. We got in before dinner and were happy to learn that we had a hotel room with an ocean view. Not only that, but it actually is right [Read More...]

Preparing a Home (Day Fifteen)

meditation

I’ve become a serious blog slacker, at least by my typical standards. My regular discipline is to post daily, but I’ve actually had to make a conscious effort NOT to keep up that pace while on our trip. And believe it or not, the world hasn’t come to an end without a daily post from [Read More...]
