Writing a blog for another has its challenges, particularly when the person is a writer with very strong opinions and a distinct voice. And is dead. And one is representing that writer and her works.
Such is the situation here. My duty is to represent Jody Scott and to connect her works with readers. To find those readers somehow and see to it that they have the opportunity to discover her writing. And it would seem that social media is an integral part of accomplishing this.
So Jody Scott has a Facebook page and a Twitter account and this blog. She is not ouija board-ing me tweets or posts, and there is a lot of unpublished material I can share, in addition to my own recollections of our 30-year life together, but should I try to keep 'me' out of it? Is that even possible?
I've concluded it is not. So occasionally I am going to post as myself, from my viewpoint, on things that interest me and I believe would also interest Jody.
I interested Jody, and I knew, loved and understood her better than any other living person, so maybe that makes what I have to say appropriate and of interest here.
You who are reading this because of an interest in Jody Scott, feel free to let me know by commenting. And please help spread the word about Jody's writing by sharing, liking, tweeting or writing a reader review.

It was with a sublime wonder that I found Passing For Human among the bookshelves at the hip coffee shop I bar-tended. The title itself was suggestive enough for someone full of too many secrets to keep up with. Several years later I feel a sense of mentor-ship from this strange nearly forgotten sage whose daring themes strike chords with me again and again. Thank you for sharing Jody's legacy. It makes Earth feel a little more cozy.
