Poison Rings

According to my research, poison rings were originally used for carrying messages, perfume, mementos, or a lock of hair. Eventually, they were put to more nefarious uses. Hence the name “poison ring.”

In Screwing Up Time, a poison ring plays a role in the plot. Here’s a photo of my poison ring, which is very much like the one that Mark has.


  1. Exciting! It's so cool when you have an actual image of something just like what's in your book. It doesn't happen nearly often enough, imo. Awesome!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love the cover of your book.
