Start Here. – – Welcome – –


Personal Update: I had such plans for Halloween and the first week of November. Alas, a couple of weeks ago, I took a tumble down the stairs. It is hard to believe that missing that last step on the staircase could cause so much damage. I badly sprained my ankle (although at first I thought my leg was broken) and after waiting a few days for it to get worse, I went to urgent care and discovered (through x-rays) that I had two broken ribs. I can’t drive, I can’t lift, I can type, though, so I should be able to make a dent in this year’s Nanowrimo. Join me there and start your novel. I’m surprised at how well I’ve done this first week and I hope I can keep up the momentum. The US Election is in two days. Please, please, please, vote. VOTE BLUE. VOTE BLUE for DEMOCRACY and Remember January 6th.


This is the Landing Page for Griffins and Ginger Snaps.

Curious? See my FAQ. [Soon to be updated.]

Quick Note: There is an update, an ETA if you will on my feelings for a post I made a few years ago on JK Rowling. I’ve left the link to her writing advice.

We’re halfway through 2022 and I hope you’re enjoying some of the new features here on Griffins and Ginger Snaps!
