The Games People Play

Lots of people play car games, sing songs, and entertain themselves and their kids in the car. We have always had our own twist on things… Erik wrote about the Amish Farm Game in Errant Gods, but we have many, many others. When our son was little we played the […]

The Original Hank

As you may already know if you are a regular reader of Hank-And-Jane-IRL, Erik and I started dating in December of 1999. That first month, he invited me to his grandparents’ house for dinner. At the table sat Erik’s grandparents, Erik’s parents, and the two of us— three generations in […]

Lily gets a make-over

In another dastardly oh-look-the-cute-little-author-fellow-did-it-again move, I replaced the cover of Devils: A Collection of Devilish Short Fiction this week. Here she is: I love this new cover.

Yay, U.K. for giving those Canadians what for!  It’s an awesome […]

  This Christmas, Erik’s and my presents aligned nicely.  I bought him the new Alien: Covenant movie and he bought be the softest blanket ever.  These two might not seem like they go together but they do.  Somewhere near the beginning of our relationship, we bought the Aliens box set […]

Party Like It’s 1999

If you were around in 1999, you remember a few things like Y2K, dial up modems, looking up movie times in the paper, and landline phones. Ooh, and Mr. MovieFone. Dec 17, 1999, marks the 18th anniversary of my first date with Erik. I was getting my undergrad degree, and […]

Good Dog!

  When Erik and I first met, he had a huge Rottweiler (his second), and dogs scared me. I was so scared of dogs that I would go the long way to class just to avoid the stray dog that roamed our college campus. I still remember the first time […]
