I have waited a long time to spill this news. My memoir for kids, Tongue-Tied, is finally out!!! https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2019/08/tongue-tied-conferences-and-quiet.html

At the time of signing contracts, I had no idea it would take this long. I was also not ready to publish something myself, but now, watch out! Okay, I'm still a snail...

I've completed the first draft of a book.   :banana:

Yay! That wonderfully weird feeling of ecstasy and loss all rolled into one.

Killing off a bunch of protagonists at one time?  Sorry, Game of Thrones, but you're not the first to do it.

I remember that!

I also remember walking out of the theater dazed and gutted. I never watched The Transformers after that. I wasn't interested.

I enjoyed your interview. Laughing over the genetic engineering--former microbiologist/biochemist here--if you knew what goes on in the lab, you wouldn't want anybody messing with your DNA. But it's great for SF.

I blogged about my kids going off to college down to FL...and Dorian on its way there. https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2019/08/and-off-they-go.html
