The cover of my first novel, "Raping Aphrodite," is very suggestive. It features a beautiful, naked woman with flowing hair, her eyes closed and, you get the picture. But, as the adage goes, don't judge a book by its cover. "Raping Aphrodite" is not a book about sex. While there is sexual materia... Read more of this blog post »

When you think of summer you more than likely think of the beach, and when you think of the beach, if you’re like me, you think of sharks. This summer you will definitely be thinking of one big, badass Great White shark in particular, Jaws, because the original movie is headed back to theaters!
