Ellen has a new book on Amazon, for $2.99. Search for Kuhfeld, or for Minnesota Vice. $2.99. And if you feel like giving C&C, I'm willing to talk. (By the way, that is a codfish in the pot. It belongs there -- it'd be a good illustration for one of the stories.)

It's ten short stories. Those of you who visit FFnet have had the chance to read two of them; those who visit my website have been able to read two more. Those are the ones I wrote by myself. The other six were written together by myself and Mary, and all of them published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. Some have been translated into German or French. They all are mysteries, of a sort, though several have a decent amount of fantasy in them. (Dragons? Wizards? Werewolves? Yes indeed!)

I try to put humor or wit into everything, and usually succeed. The codfish belongs in a story called "The Scales Of Justice." Another of the stories is rather tag-team: I gave Mary a list of things to include, and she wrote the first half of the story to lead inescapably to a certain conclusion. Then I wrote the second half to stand that conclusion on its head. We both went over the result, so it wasn't obvious two different people with two different styles wrote the two halves.

Mary also writes as Monica Ferris. The nineteenth book in her Betsy Devonshire mystery series is coming out in a couple of weeks, from Berkley Prime Crime.

There are also the five books she wrote as Mary Monica Pulver, and she was half of Margaret Frazer for five books, and maybe twenty percent for the sixth.

I wish I had the energy. One book published, and Different Colors counts as a novel at 100k words (but can't be published because it's fan fiction). After that, it's short stories, theses, chapbooks, and articles all the way.

On the other hand, I've been a cartoonist, too. That fills in a few holes in my resume.

Wow, you guys have really done some seriores things. I have been doing some stuff with photography. I have one photo hanging in the wisconsin short track hall of fame. I have a photo I sold to grassroots motorsports magazine in the april issue this year. I also take pics every sat night at the local dirt track. My photos can be found at otaku photography on facebook. I have the pink drift car on the header.

We've had a long time to do a lot of stuff. My first fanfic was published in the early Sixties, while Mary was a Navy journalist during the Vietnam War. It accumulates, and mostly, I don't throw things away.
