The Emerald Enigma by Paul Regnier is the first story in the Space Drifter series and is a rare blend of outer space heroics and slapstick comedy. An odd but fun assortment of characters make up the crew of the star ship that serves as the main setting of the story. Captain Glint is the wise-cracking hero who is obsessed with obtaining the Emerald Enigma. His first officer is a reptilian alien creature named Blix, who serves Glint well with his superior intelligence and strength. He’s also the perfect straight man for Captain Glint’s jokes. A beautiful warrior/princess named Jassette and a time-traveling boy … Continue reading Space Drifters – Book Review

Red Rising by Pierce Brown is a book that on the surface sounds like it belongs in the genre that can be summed up as young-hero-takes-on-the-evil-establishment-and-wins, but that description will only apply before reading the book. A few chapters into Red Rising and I knew I was reading something completely original that takes the aforementioned genre and turns it upside down and then lifts it to new breath-taking heights. Our main character is named Darrow. He and his people are called the Reds, a class of people who are born and die beneath the surface of Mars, mining for natural … Continue reading Red Rising
At long last, I’m revealing the cover of my new book, Glazed Man and Rat Girl 2. See it here, below. This book is the second in the series and it will provide answers to the cliffhangers that I left my readers with at the end of GMRG#1. What happened to Martha (Rat Girl) and the rats after they blasted off from earth in their tiny rocket? Did they ever make it to Mars? And what about our other hero, Glazed Man? Last we saw him, he had been kidnapped by some mysterious person whose face was familiar to Glazed … Continue reading Cover Reveal – Glazed Man 2
STAR for Entertainment Value …. and a STAR for Clean Content … The Maze Runner Trilogy, written by James Dashner, and consisting of The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, and The Death Cure are an excellent Young Adult series that I highly recommend to anyone 13 and up. There are other titles in the series that I have not read. I believe they are prequels to the main series. The storyline throughout the whole series kept me guessing. I was never really sure where the stories were going, and that’s a good thing. These books are completely original in their concept. … Continue reading The Maze Runner Books

The new movie, BFG (Big Friendly Giant), has disappointed in ticket sales so far, but in the “great movie” department, it’s a huge success. I took my 13 year old daughter to see it this past weekend and we both had nothing but good things to say about it. The story, adapted from a much beloved book by Roald Dahl, has a classic feel with plenty of old fashioned good versus evil action, and just enough magic mixed in to carry us viewers into a world that’s much more fun and exciting then the one we live in. The giant is lovable and … Continue reading BFG is Big and Friendly
I’m very excited about my new book, due out at the end of this year. My working title is GLAZED MAN & RAT GIRL 2: PLASTIC HEAD’S SWEET REVENGE.

I may share some of those in the coming months. I’m also having a blast creating new characters for this book. Here is a sneak peak at one of the new characters. I won’t tell you it’s name or how it fits into the … Continue reading New Artwork for Glazed Man 2
