I am one of a zillion writers living in Saint Paul, MN. I have an agency background and a checkered past flirting with journalism. This blog is a place to see some of the work I am most proud of.

This is my house on Mars

Hundertwasser On Mars

When I posed the question to my Facebook friends “If I were to write about something in a blog, what is it that you would want to read about?” the response was overwhelmingly “whatever!”. Which is better than just “whatever.” But I liked the way my friend

Mollie said it, in a list of suggested random topics she said, “What would your house on Mars look like?” Well, I happen to know exactly what my house on Mars would look like. But also, I took a liking to the phrase. I like Mars. It’s my ruling planet, as an Aries, if you go in for that sort of thing. Mars is fiery, and the planet of war, and it’s also the planet where Martians come from. It’s got a lot going for it. Which is why I set up my blog there.
