Happy Anniversary

Today is our third anniversary. Since Mission of Complex began on June 25, 2011, we’ve met a lot of good people and have seemed to help some of them with our stories of Nate’s life and our life with him.


The last year (actually, more than a year) has found this blog less attended to as I wrote my next book, Split Season (the story of the 1981 baseball season and strike, to be published in spring 2015 by Thomas Dunne Books). There’s another reason though: life with Nate has settled into a more predictable pattern. He’s post-school, living at home, drawing (his StripMallArt shop on Etsy is doing well and he’s slated to have several shows/exhibits in the coming months) and getting through his day-to-day with a certain consistency. And that’s good. Still, there are things to write about and one of them is very exciting. Keep a look out in the next few days.

Thanks to all of you who’ve been part of the Mission of Complex family. You’re all part of the team now.
