I just turned 60 and wanted to do something fun to celebrate. I’m kind of a nerd about the music I like, so this is what I chose to do. Of course, I also had a party with my family that was really awesome, but this is more of a private treat. I’ve been a music fan since I was really young, and am still getting so much enjoyment out of music today. I’m not a musician, just someone who appreciates a well-crafted song. My only real criteria was whether or not I’ve gotten constant joy out of listening to … Continue reading My Top 100 Songs of All Time
Starlite, by Jonathan Latt, is a space opera science fiction novel with a healthy dose of humor. The tone is closer to Guardians of the Galaxy than Star Wars. The story centers around Bevil Cyrex, a young man from a good family who spends more time flying through space in his beloved spaceship than staying at home with his loving family whose main concern is to find him a mate. On one of his space adventures, he stumbles upon an old space station hotel called The Starlite. It’s been abandoned but Bevil is amazed to find it in great shape. … Continue reading Starlite – Book Review
Standard Candles by Rachel Lulich is a fantastic conclusion to a great series. Ms. Lulich has succeeded in bringing her readers an intelligent, suspenseful, entertaining science fiction series. I won’t spoil the ending but I will say it brought me to tears. I’m not telling if they were happy or sad tears. You’ll have to read to find out. I enjoyed all three books, but I think I’d have to say, Standard Candles is my favorite book in the series. I highly recommend the whole series, but especially Standard Candles.

My two new books, Caged Animals and Escaped Animals have just been released! They are now available as paperbacks or e-books on Amazon. I’m extremely proud of the story told in these books (they’re parts 1 and 2 of a series called GRUNTS.) It took me two years to write it and close to another year to finalize them and get them out to the public. The other thing that I absolutely love about my books is the artwork. Yes, that’s my work too. I’m not a professional cover designer, but I think they both came out looking pretty darn … Continue reading My New Books are Published!

Being a Kindle Vella author myself, I decided to test the platform out to see what its like to read a book on the Kindle Vella website. I did the typical Vella reader thing and scrolled through the endless titles that range the spectrum of fiction reading. Everything from Romance to Horror, from Kings and Queens to Space Pirates to flesh eating zombies is available on Vella to be read one short episode at a time. Being the picky reader that I am, I tried out at least ten stories before I found one that grabbed my attention and brought … Continue reading Warehouse 51 – A Fantastic Read on Kindle Vella
It’s time for my annual list of my favorite books from the past year. My total number of books read and reviewed during 2021 is slightly lower than past years. In 2021 I only made it through 22 fiction books. What can I say. It’s been a busy year. However, 22 books read and reviewed are still enough that I can easily look back and choose a few that stood out above the small crowd. These are the books that I couldn’t put down. The ones that stayed in my head and kept my imagination churning and my face smiling … Continue reading My Top 6 Books of 2021
