The last of this summer’s harvest. My daughter and I worked hard in watering and taking care of the plants all summer. Seeing what we showed brought me back to my grandfather teaching me how to garden back when I was a kid. When I’m not writing, I like getting my hands dirty gardening.

Check out these great books! What would you suggest others to read?

I love reading. There are so many books out there these days and so little time. But that's a good thing! I'd rather have a tremendous amount of choice to go through than not enough. But there was a time that I only read one type of book. I loved fantasy and that was it. As a kid, I grew up on

It took us two nights to finish watching Close Encounters of the Third Kind on DVD, but I'm happy that my kids did sit through the 1977 movie. They don't make movies like this any more. The pacing is intentionally slow and the build up to the third act is just plan magical. If you haven't seen the movie, do check it out as it was recently in the theater for its 40th anniversary.

When I start researching a new book, I watch, listen and read all sorts of things. I've started to plot about book two in the Werewhale series. I heard Bjork's new song and wanted to share. It's pretty out there but I like that about her. https://youtu.be/LO-7Ondgk0M

Farewell to the Cassini spacecraft. I remember back in the late '90s when my wife (my girlfriend at the time) shared with me a PR brochure from NASA that she got from work that was all about the Cassini mission. Seven years later Cassini arrived at Saturn and has discovered more than we could ever imagine (who new that water was spraying off one of its moons as plumes?).

I love fantasy/science fiction, but I also love science. I have always been energized by seeing how ideas ...from one can influence the other. We have iPhones today (remember Star Trek communicators) and I want to thank all those who worked on the Cassini spacecraft mission. For 13 years, Cassini has orbited Saturn and taken amazing pictures. Please take a moment and look at the images from the NY Times website. They're a beautiful testimony of how wonderful our solar system is and puts in perspective how much more we have to learn. Farewell Cassini and thank you for the great science you've done for humanity. I will think of you as you burn up in Saturn's atmosphere this morning.

My thoughts and prayers to everyone in Florida. I've family there near Jacksonville and I'm praying for them all.

The northern eyewall of Hurricane Irma has reached the Florida Keys, the National Hurricane Center tweeted Sunday morning. As of 7 a.m. ET, the hurricane's eye was about 15 miles southeast of Key West, the NHC said.

Here are some ways to help the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. I chose to donate to the Star of Hope to help the homeless. Who can you help?

I've watched the news reports and I can't imagine the amount of rain that people in Texas and Louisiana have received from Hurricane Harvey. Back in 2011, my wife and I planned to take our kids to visit her cousins on the west coast. It was going to be our first big trip with the kids and we

Cute story!

It's probably just a film prop but we want to believe.

Been busy preparing for the launch of my next book Ahab's Daughter: The Werewhale Saga. But I did come across this throught-provoking Washington Post article about the women in Game of Thrones. I'm a fan of the series (both the books and HBO TV show) and found this article worth reading.

Women on "Game of Thrones" have freed themselves from horrifying circumstances. But does their liberation mean anything for the world they hope to rule?
