White Hat Hacker February 12, 2017

Obviously, I have a website.  I’m proud of it: www.loriduffwrites.com.  I paid someone to set it up initially, but ever since the very beginning I have changed it and added to it often.  It’s one of my children, really, lovingly created out of materials I had on hand.  It is very meaningful to me.  To…

Book Review — Chasing the Moon February 9, 2017

Chasing the Moon “Chasing the Moon” by A. Lee Martinez is a strange little book, highly entertaining, and laugh out loud funny. Don’t let its silliness fool you, though.

Book Review — The Rook January 26, 2017

  The Rook “The Rook” by Daniel O’Malley is a wonderfully inventive, witty, thoughtful book that can be, at times, dead serious and laugh out loud hilarious.
