    I, Novelist: How Many K’s in Delaney

    My first original novel, How Many K’s in Delaney, was a scifi epic inspired by Jules Verne and Star Trek and it had an incredible, Twilight Zone-esque twist at the end. The hero of the piece was John Delaney, an astronaut on a one-way mission to go as far as he could go. A solo mission with nothing but a HAL like computer to keep him company and an occasional six-months-later message from the folks back home. One day, he receives a message that isn’t from the computer or Alpha Control. This message is from a group of aliens who are as curious about Delaney as he is about them.…

    Come On In, the Water’s Bloody is Now Available in Paperback

    You asked for it, you got it. There is now a paperback version of my Supernatural Interview book Come On In, the Water’s Bloody. If you’re not familiar with the book, it’s a collection of interviews I did with the cast and crew of Supernatural back when they thought they were only going to run five seasons! A few of the interviews such as the ones with Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Eric Kripke are from the Comic-Con press room. But the majority are one-on-one interviews that I conducted over the years. One of my favorites is the first interview I did with Misha Collins before Castiel even made his…

    Blast from the Past: Nathan Fillion talks about his “new” show Castle (2009)

    Castle is one of my favorite TV shows, but back in 2009 it was a new series trying to find it’s audience. The show premiered in the spring with only 10 episodes in the first season. Now, we’re used to staggered starts and short runs but in 2009, it was tough for a show to kick-off mid-season. Nathan Fillion, the star of the show, set off on a whirl-wind, phone tour with reporters to drum up support. Usually, these events are handled as conference calls so every reporter comes away with the exact same quotes. Instead, ABC set up one-on-one calls which must have been crazy for Nathan, but was…

    Look! The Full-size Lost in Space Chariot!

    I’ve often heard the story about my in-laws visiting the set of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea when the TV series was filming at 20th Century Fox in the 60’s. But no one ever told me that my husband also visited 20th Century Fox studios when he was 8 years old. That’s why I was so surprised when I found these two while sorting through two boxes worth of old family photos. This is the Chariot from Lost in Space. It was an actual, working vehicle built on top of the tracks from a Snowcat. We have models and miniatures of this all over the house. I can’t…
