The other day, a friend messaged me to say she heard I’d saved a robin. “No, no,” I responded (more or less). “It was a crow, and a very long time ago.” Well, her son had been chatting with my daughter and he’d been adamant it was a robin, but no doubt that was a mix up.
It took me a moment, and then I went, “Oh yeah, there was a robin!”
About three minutes later, I went, “There was also that blue jay, once, in Washington DC.”
And, oh my goodness, I am only now remembering the baby pigeon we raised on our balcony! We actually set poor old Poopo (pronounced poop-o, as named by my mother) free, and he flew back to us after getting beaten up by the other pigeons. It was pretty brutal. We nursed him back to health, and the second time he flew away, he seemed to do fine.
So on this fine spring evening, I’ve decided to make it my business to address you, not as an author, but as an amateur bird whisperer, with a few fine points on what to do if you happen to find a young bird stranded on the ground. Because it happens this time of year. And you could be the one to save that little creature’s life. And that, my friend, is a wonderful thing.Read More

I’ve been sitting on writing this review for a couple of weeks, though I’m not quite sure why. It’s been a busy two weeks, but writing a review doesn’t usually take so long that I couldn’t fit it in somewhere quite easily. I suppose the truth is that I both loved On The Edge of Gone, and found myself wishing it would hurry up a little–mostly because it wasn’t the story I was expecting. That said, some of those surprises were truly awesome, and I still highly recommend this read.Read More
