I just visited Shelley's blog and spotted this fun way to spell out my name. If you'd like to do the same you can do it here
I also found out, from the same source, that my all time favourite sci fi author, Octavia E Butler died at a comparitively young age last February. I'm shocked. I first read 'Kindred' years ago - and went on to enjoy the Xenogenesis trilogy which I've just sent in one volume (Lilith's Brood) to my convict penpal in the States. I'm going to have to get it for myself now.
