8/17/19 A fair warning:  Vampire Holidays is a ROMANCE!!! No gratuitous sex or violence. Sorry. It's five chapters:  Valentine's Day, Independence Day, Halloween (what costumes do Vampires wear?), Christmas/New Year, and Valentine's Day again (as stated, it's a Romance). So if you stick with it to the end, you're only out $4.

7/2/19 Vampire Holidays 2 - Independence Day is now available for 99¢. A small price to pay to find out what a nonogamist is, as well as which side the Vampires were on during World War II.

4/19 Like me, this website is now semi-live.  And while we live in an age of shameless self-promotion, I have elected to take the quieter route of word-of-mouth.  So if you like the content, please spread the word.

The website will be growing.  Additional chapters of the Vampire Holiday series will be available soon at $1 per chapter.  I'm not looking to get rich, but would like to cover costs.  Future items will include some medieval ornaments in the Other Stuff section; my punishment for writing an article about them.

Contact:  If you must, my email is  I'll try to check it at least once a week, so don't get excited if you don't get an immediate response.

Here's an interesting website:
It's full of neat hobby ideas and was the first place to publish something of mine:  Siege Engines:  Not just for the Holidays Anymore.

Once upon a time (please excuse my lack of originality), author Andrea Digiglio ran a contest.  I came in second (possibly out of two entries).  Part of the entry was an autobio section, which I filled out with, "I'm boring."  I was challenged to write something about being boring.  The criteria included at least one accounting and one military history fact.  Thus the incredibly popular (with my relatives) "Vampire Holidays" series came to be.  A long way just to say, see her website:
