Coming soon: the Darkness at Sunset and Vine trilogy

But until then, you can amuse yourselves mightily at, the production and essay site for the readers’ theater version of Part I of the trilogy. Part I used to be called Darkness at Sunset and Vine but has been renamed, The Way we Live Now at Sunset and Vine. The production of it simply made my year in 2008. Or you can look around the publisher site at, which is also fun, but not as much. Enjoy!

The book should be on sale at least by June of 2012 (she wrote with great confidence).

Dread Pirate Mayerson gives an interview

“Q: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have 3 things, what would they be?

“A: A fully outfitted frigate, a skillful crew and a satellite phone. I’d sail the high seas, rescuing people marooned on desert islands with only three things. I’d be known as the Dread Pirate Mayerson, the Scourge of Silly Interview Questions. And if I had an internet connection I’d blog about my adventures.”
