This Fourth of July weekend finds me working on THE BRIDGEWATER LEGACY - Book #4 of The Bridgewater Chronicles. A short while back the ending of the series was revealed to me in a dream and so, unlike the other books in the series, I'm working backwards. This picture is one that is providing inspiration [...]

10th Work Anniversary

I must admit I'm blessed.There aren't many people who get a shot at a second career - especially when it's doing something they love to do. For me that passion has always been writing. (Second only to reading.) For most of my adult life I didn't take the opportunity to find my writing voice - [...]

The article resonated with me on many levels but mostly because I review books I've read. Let me digress momentarily and say that I began reviewing books [...]

Oak Cliff – Free Chapter

In honor of the upcoming Halloween holiday, I'm offering here the Prologue of OAK CLIFF: A TALE OF DARKNESS AND DESPAIR.    Prologue 1870 Inky darkness cloaked the bedroom as the gaunt figure of a man carefully drew back the layers of bedclothes from the flannel-clad, sleeping woman.

Information Please

A friend sent this story to me in an email. It's called Information Please. For those of you old enough to remember dial up phones and operators, it will ring a bell (no pun intended).

To The Moon and Back – Apollo 11

Forty-five years ago I had the awesome opportunity to watch as an American astronaut set foot on the moon. I remember that day as though it was yesterday. This was the week in 1969 that I, along with a work colleague, were on our first cruise. It was on Home Lines (now defunct) and the [...]
