Book Review: A Perfect America by Peter Meredith

I know what you’re thinking…Another day, another dystopia. It seems as if every author, especially of a conservative or libertarian persuasion, has a cautionary tale to offer. I have by now read too many to count, and most of them leave me unsatisfied. A good dystopia has a lot to accomplish, probably more than any […]

Zombies, Halloween, and You

For children, Halloween ranks right up there with Christmas as the best time of year. For the informed adult concerned about the coming Zombie Apocalypse, Halloween can be a gut check. It doesn’t mean, however, that you have to dread it entirely: costumes, free candy, and parties are celebrations of life and a thumbing-of-the-nose at […]

Zombie Redoubts on the Go

In The Ultimate Guide to Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse, I described methods to turn your house or apartment into a Zombie Redoubt: a place of refuge that can be readily defended during a Zombie Apocalypse. If, for whatever reason, you can’t or won’t take those steps to make your home more zombie-resistant (almost no place […]

You Should See 2013’s The Bible

The Mark Burnett-produced 2013 TV miniseries The Bible is far from the best television you’ll ever see, but if you find Western culture to be at all relevant to your daily life, you have to watch it. Like it or not, the Bible and its teachings undergird much of the West’s laws, mores, and ethics, […]

You Deserve Better Than God’s Not Dead

We need to talk about God’s Not Dead. It’s available on Netflix streaming. Horror fans are a lot like Christian fiction fans: there are so many truly terrible horror movies out there that when one comes out that’s even half-good, it gets lauded by fans of the genre as a masterful piece of filmmaking and […]

You Can’t Win If You Don’

Some time ago there was a commercial for a state lottery saying, "You can’t win if you don’t play." Overlooking the fact the odds were still against you even when you did play, the statement itself was quite true. It’s true for politics as well, except you need to remember politics isn’t a relatively harmless […]

Yes, It’s an Egg.

We have some very confused birds on our lot. A robin or two that are convinced they are chickens, when they are indeed not. One little bird in particular has been laying beautiful little blue speckled eggs in our hen nesting box. That robin has been very sneaky–breaching the coop after hours while my hens […]

Yes, ISIS is Still Islamic

Whenever there is an intra-party debate on the right, you’re likely to see prominently placed stories in major media outlets. You’ll rarely hear of a similar debate on the left unless you peruse their own websites and blogs but I happened to stumble across one today at Salon.com while satisfying my masochistic desire to see […]

Yes to Yes Means Yes!

Dear Gov. Brown- Thank you from the bottom of my cold bleeding heart. It’s about time men realize that every unsavory sexual advance or encounter is their fault by the simple fact of anatomy. Radical feminists have been touting this fact for decades and this mother of two daughters is finally at peace knowing that […]

Writing Is A Thankless Job, Butt It Could Be Worse

A reader hugged me from out of nowhere this week. She said that my novel has helped her grieve the sudden death of her adult son. Another woman, an elderly one, shared that my main character, Prudence Brandt, knows exactly what it feels like to be a widow who lost her husband and best friend. […]
