As some of you know Peter had surgery on Friday to relieve a rather serious back problem that was progressively getting worse. He got through it as well as expected all things considered. He is resting comfortably at home now working on getting better. His time on the internet is rather limited but [...:]

Several years back, I wrote a four-issue run on Web of Spider-Man about a group called the "Cult of Love." A grief-stricken Betty Leeds was easy pickings for the mind-manipulating group, and the story focused on Spider-Man's attempts to get her out of the Cult's [...:]

Previous installments:  Part 1 – Part 2

In the past two weeks I've been juggling a young adult novel, a screenplay, income taxes, and my daughter's Bat-Mitzvah. With all those balls in the air, I've got my butt in a sling, which means—yes, that's right—a quick [...:]

You don't need me to tell you how brilliant "Toy Story 3″ was, so I'll just move right onto my scenario for "Toy Story 4″:
Sid from the original "Toy Story" shows up (all grown up and totally psychotic since the toy-attack incident from the first film) and destroys all of Woody's toy friends, leaving Woody's [...:]

2) His character, Dre, is taught by Jackie Chan, who IS martial arts.
3) Dre's (Smith's character) romance with a young Chinese violinist is utterly charming.

Sheila O'Shea is an occasional contributor to this site and also happens to be my sister-in-law. Today's her birthday and I didn't have a chance to get her anything, so this attempted helpful posting is my gift: Sheila's an unemployed paralegal in Atlanta and could really use some help with being employed.
