This is Abby, my best friend's best friend.

Welcome to my place

Thanks for dropping in. There's not much here--just me and a few of my friends, most of them with spines but no backbones.

Please look around. For information about my books, click on Just by Chance in the menu bar or the individual titles to the right. To read some of my articles, click on Just by Chance and then click the Articles link. (Not many articles there; I will add articles as I identify URLs for them.) If for some reason you want to know more about me, click on About PC.

I'd love to hear from you, and you can email me by clicking the Contact link. I'll do my best to reply, but competing demands (such as the need for sleep) may not permit me to do so. Right now, in fact, I have to take a nap.

But I'm not a light sleeper so don't worry about disturbing me. Stay as long as you like.
