The History of the (Whole) World

my progress as I write, revise, send to my editor, re-revise, fact-check, galley-read, and promote my books, including (but not limited to) a multi-volume history of the world. While living on a farm, educating my kids, and teaching. And doing a few other things too.

May at Peace Hill

Greetings from the farm, where a combination of spring tasks (pasture management, fruit tree spraying, spring planting, dosing sheep with concentrated garlic juice, things like that) and lots of writing (new projects underway…very exciting) have combined to prevent new blog posts. I’m back on the job now, though. Promise.

Here’s how things look around here, after all that farm work.

Mars, the German shepherd. He thinks he’s being helpful. If only he had opposable thumbs.

Yep. Grass. Over there. Much greener.

See? I have been working. Promise. Updates on the writing front coming soon.
