I've been writing a lot over the past few months, but not all of it has appeared on the website. Today I wanted to update all of you on what I've been doing lately.
My podcast Introvert University now has three episodes available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and more. Each podcast is a 35-to-50-minute lecture on the philosophy and science behind the concept of introversion and its historical development. Here is a summary of each episode so far:
Publications on Introvert Dear
Last but certainly not least, our baby girl Galadriel just turned six months old! She continues to grow and bring joy to the lives of her parents and other family members, as well as those of my students. As a teacher during the pandemic, I teach my students remotely (mostly over Zoom), and when my wife needs me to hold Galadriel for a time, I let her say hi to the students. Some of them have seen her grow from a newborn to now (they had my class last year too). They have nicknames for her, like "War baby" (they think her cute sounds are war cries) or "Bebe" or the class mascot.
She is talking more and even started crawling yesterday! Okay, she pushed herself up and slid back a bit, but crawling backward is still crawling, right? My wife and I still believe that she is an introvert baby due in part to her high sensitivity to loud sounds, since whenever one of us sneezes while holding her, she startles violently. She's nearly impossible to put to sleep, and will wake up at the slightest motion; she also becomes very fussy when hungry! She gets overstimulated in loud environments, but since our house is so quiet, she actually likes going to see her lively cousins (we're in a socially distanced "bubble" between our three families). And while she has started making more sounds, she mainly does it to try out her voice, we think, since she mimics our singing and tries to sing back to us.
I hope to have more updates about publications soon, so stay tuned! Other than that, what do you think I should write about? Please put in the comments what you'd like to see me write about next. Thanks for reading.

I hold an MA in Philosophy from San Francisco State University and wrote my thesis on using moral education in schools to resist the influence of advertising on politics. I am the author of five-book introvert epic fantasy series Kaybree versus the Angels.
