The fact that I have not posted anything since October would lead a reader to believe that I haven’t been writing.  The scribbled pages strewn about the house would say otherwise.  Life has intruded rudely in the form of necessity (which, while maybe claiming motherhood, isn’t always the pro-creator of invention… and certainly not leisure).

During my hiatus… (sounds impressive, doesn’t it?  Hiatus.  Just adds luster to a unvarnished sloth) from self-serving… er, self-publication, I have been seeking to deepen my knowledge and, hopefully, skill as a writer.

Time will tell, eh?

The name is still Charley.  I still live in Florida with my wife and our beloved beast.
