Since the last time we chatted it has been nothing but snow, snow, snow, and more snow. My trusty yellow snow shovel has gotten a lot of work in the last couple weeks. I hope everyone that’s been getting snow and cold are staying safe and healthy.
In all of this wintery wonderland fun, my debut novel, ‘Will You Still Love Me If I Become Someone Else?’ releases on February 23rd. Click here to check it out!
I have realized that once I start shoveling and am half way through clearing the driveway an idea for a story, a scene, or a great thread of dialogue between two characters pop up in my mind. And by the time I’m finished shoveling, the idea is—poof—gone to the wind!
Does this ever happen to you (shoveling, in the shower, landing a rover on Mars)? Let me know!
The Rabbit Hole of Research, will return next month, and I’m cooking up something special for these Modern Times!
Not to fear, the back issues of Rabbit Hole of Research are posted on my website, and If you missed an issue (or you are new to my newsletter) go check them out here. They are a fun take on the quirky science in Fiction books and movies. And I’ll be back in March with an exciting new episode. I have gotten a few reader requests—plasma arrows, Independence Day, Tenet—I am making a list and checking it … well that’s a different story. LOL
Keep your eyes out for a virtual launch party, where I’ll read an excerpt and you can ask me anything.

A few people have asked how I started writing novels. Even though I have been writing since I was a teenager, the decision to write novels came 10 years ago.
10 years ago today I had surgery to repair my ruptured Achilles tendon. During my recovery I started writing again, but didn’t want to write poetry. I started to draft a novel, and a year later I finished writing my first novel, “Pretty Small Things.”
It wasn’t a good novel, but I learned a lot, joined writing groups, critique and beta readers, and did a lot of reading and writing to find my style and voice.
4 years ago (6 years after getting back to writing) I finished the first draft of “Will You Still Love Me If I Become Someone Else?”
2 years ago I got an offer to publish from @rhetaskewpublishing.
Just here for Jotham’s writing updates, cool. But you are missing out on the Down The Rabbit Hole of Research newsletter delivered to your email inbox once a month where I explore the science in fiction and try to bring some actual factual science to the things we read and see in fiction. Will real accurate science destroy the plot of our favorite fiction? Sign up here
