Quick links to my favorite stories

Welcome to my bright corner of the internet. That’s me to the left, hoping the camera doesn’t steal my soul. (Spinning fast helps.)

This TOC will help you find the topics that interest you. These are not necessarily my most popular stories. But they are the ones that I put out into the world, hoping to make it better. You may find my topic headings strange. But I believe we read to feel — to learn, enlighten, escape, cry, laugh, and for one brief moment, step inside a world so different from our own.

Here are my doorways. Choose wisely…

You like to have bizarre conversations at dinner parties — weird trivia

You want to understand yourself so that you can understand others

You believe love is a powerful verb

You hate dating, but you want to enjoy it

You want to time travel or you were born in the wrong century

You want to learn through the past — my favorite biographies

The stories everyone reads — sex, sex, sex…

Because you love women and want to support them

You want to understand animals because we are them

You need to laugh

Or to cry — getting over a breakup

You want to control your biases so that they never control you

For my writers — tips, tricks, and inspiration
