While You Were At Art Basel Miami

Things I did while you were at Art Basel Miami... Tuesday Drank Gato Negro purchased from the gas station. Gave my cats a manicure. Ate salad for dinner and wanted to shoot myself. Wednesday It was crazy-warm, so I made Lime Rickey drinks with Rum and listened to The The “Soul Mining". Because Rum. Got… Continue reading While You Were At Art Basel Miami

So You Say You Were A 1980’s Indie Kid?

Have I mentioned lately that you should purchase the novel "Wivenhoe Park"? Because you really should. Just look at all the reviews! You don't need to take my word for it just because I did the cover and he's my husband.

Forceps, Stethoscopes, and Ivory Babies

What are some of the things I do on weekdays? Well, go to the Dittrick Medical History Center, of course.

Sex, Drugs, and Cassette Tapes

My husband's novel is out! So go buy it here. Kindle edition is available on there, but since I did the artwork you probably want the real deal, don't you?

A Tribute in Ann Arbor

I could do without another trip to Ann Arbor. I may have been born there, but the town I knew is now gone. In fact, just about everyone I once knew there has left. My immediate family bailed, and the only one of us left is my dad being buried there. The University of Michigan… Continue reading A Tribute in Ann Arbor
