Brockeim Argues Humor, Romance and Monkeys

My agent can be hard on me sometimes. She expects me to crank out funny things each day. She’s critical when I drink coffee, and she’s just as critical when I want to stop by the pub. It’s difficult. Deadlines, monkeys, coffee, and an agent who never...

Brockeim on Instagram

https://www.instagram.com/brockeim/ It is a brave new world, social media is. It isn’t so new, but here we are, doing relationships using pictures. Is this what the cave dwellers were doing in the Lascaux Cave? At any rate, Instagram, I’m here. Yeah, I...

Love I write a lot about romance. I love love. I love romance. I also love, “Love your neighbor.” Some of you are nodding your head. Good. Keep working on it. Some of you are saying, “I do it, but those guys sure don’t.” That might be...
