Come on over!

Now that I have two blogs covering the different aspects of this one, I will make some changes to both. The Freewheeling Freelancer will continue to carry non-fiction about living and working on the road, and about my bicycle travels. Meanwhile, the site jthine.com will host fiction and memoir. Each Saturday, I will post to one site and publish a link on the other.

Jonathan.
