Born in Carson City, Nevada, USA, I grew up in a historic town, Virginia City, made famous by its gold and silver mines that built San Francisco, and was immortalized by Mark Twain in his book "Roughing It", and by the "Bonanza" TV series for those of you who remember that long-running Western.

I thank you for your consideration, it has been suggested to me it would make a great mini-series. I've thought about it, but have made no decision at this time.(less)

In a previous blog post, "Do You Know You Have a Superpower?" I nagged everyone about the importance of taking the time to write a good book review if you liked a book for reviews help an author immensely, however, I left you all hanging with the promise of how to write something quite different ~ the ‘Good’ Bad Book Review.

So, now I’m keeping my promise and won’t leave you hanging any longer.... Read more of this blog post »

Phrom a Phantom Phan’s Perspective

“Oh no,” I thought all those years ago when this book first came out, “not another disaster beyond our imagination!”

“So it’s true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

“Falling in love is very real, but I used to shake my head when people talked about soul mates, poor deluded individuals grasping at some supernatural ideal not intended for mortals but sounded pretty in a poetry book. Then, we met, and everything changed, the cynic has become the converted, the sceptic, an ardent zealot.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

“An acquaintance merely enjoys your company, a fair-weather companion flatters when all is well, a true friend has your best interests at heart and the pluck to tell you what you need to hear.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly
