ISIS. Tsunamis. Climate Change.

ISIS. Earthquakes. Tsunamis. Economic collapse. Political unrest. Terrorists. Antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Nuclear threat. Climate change.

Both of Me by Jonathan Friesen

Dear Blink Readers, I met her at a mental health conference.  She grabbed me following my talk, and in words both passionate and disjointed shared a story of life with DID—Dissociative Identity Disorder.

What’s Your Favorite Dystopian and Why? by Jill Williamson

The first dystopian novel I ever read was George Orwell’s 1984. It was assigned reading in tenth grade, and I remember thinking it was really weird. It wasn’t a favorite. But it was my first taste of the dystopian genre. At that time, I did not go looking for more books like it. My second […]
