A Salute to Editors, Part 1

This week, I present part one of an interview I did with Kat Thompson, former senior editor at Echelon Press.

People are getting sillier

Every now and then I hear something that lends credence to my long held theory that people get sillier every day.  Today I heard that a childcare centre in Queensland is banning the nursery rhyme 'Baa Baa Black Sheep', or else singing 'Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep'.  Dunno about anyone reading this, but I have never seen a rainbow coloured sheep.    The closest I've seen to such a beast would be in a trip to Inida many years ago and there was a donkey painted with coloured polka dots.  Black is a…

My name

I am often asked if Blood is my real name.  Yes, I was born Wendy Blood.  Great name for a writer right?  When I first submitted my manuscript, I was told I should not use a pen name, (they thought I made it up).  I informed them that Blood is my birth name and not something I made up.  Growing up, I hated the name Blood and now I love it!
