Rita Wilson’s Golden Globes Glam Squad Was Nowhere To Be Found, and the Internet Was Rapt

Rita Wilson caused quite a stir on Sunday afternoon ahead of the 77th Annual Golden Globes, as she reported that her hair and makeup stylist was quite late just a few hours before the event. In a tweet, the actor said that her “hair and makeup person” was “one hour and twenty minutes late.” In a second tweet, she said she was “trying to be zen” about it all.

Sunday Support Group: It Is Hereby Resolved...

Well, 2020 is off to a notably disastrous start, what with Australia aflame and now Trump's militaristic misadventures. What a way to launch a decade.

2019 Writing Update & 2020 Plans

2019 has been the biggest year of my writing career to date, with a lot of learning, a lot of rewriting, some new launches and no small measure of success.
