Up a Tree on Lake Ruhondo - Treehouse Adventures

Hi guys. It's been a while - sorry!

Here's a little excursion I went on recently with my friends. We stayed in a treehouse on Lake Ruhondo and swung back past the Ellen Degeneres & Dian Fossey Fund gorilla museum in Kinigi. Enjoy!

Fantasy Library #Authortube Tag

I was tagged in on a set of questions about favourite places to read, fantasy library design, and book conversations by my friend and fellow author Margaret Pinard. If you have a YouTube channel, feel free to join in. If you don't have a channel, you can always drop your answers in the video comments.

Kwibuka 30

Absolutely astonishing to think that it was Kwibuka 13 when I first arrived in Rwanda, and now it is Kwibuka 30! I was 13 years old in 1994 and still remember watching the news coming in very clearly. Find out more about Kwibuka ('remembrance') here. And if you're interested, I've shared a bit about my experience volunteering at Kigali Memorial in 2008, and reflections on how Rwanda has changed over the years.

Road Trip to Gisenyi


Hi guys. Sorry I haven't been updating much lately. I've pretty much exclusively switched over to YouTube and just don't have time to write blogs and make videos. Here's a little road trip I took to the north of Rwanda recently - enjoy!

Hugo Awards Need an Overhaul

Wow. The Hugo Awards are trash. I hadn't heard anything about this, but I follow this author as I'm reading their book at the moment. Jaw hit the floor. How can people like that be allowed to judge anyone's work? That's truly horrific - both their politically oppressive stance and their inability to spell the author's name.

Toki Pona

The smallest language in the world... and utterly fascinating. Reminds me a bit of Talc Alf in the way one sign or symbol can represent so many things. Official Toki Pona site.
