What's happening? Where has everyone gone? In the old days, this place was jumping with action! Where has the new action gone? Did I not serve decent martinis -- always with two olives among the merriment of gleeful toasts, happy fellowship, lively laughter and hearty discussion?

Now all that resounding ebullience has been reduced to the sound of silence, leaving me feeling like I'm in THE GRADU... Read more of this blog post »

Partial excerpt, Ch. 1, Of Good And Evil (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 11, 2011 02:01PM
Description: They were all dead;except for one. Ron grimaced. "Not again!" Staying low and zigzagging in a quick pattern, Ron hastened over to Lieutenant Uebelacker. He was the last man on his team still alive; barely. Mortally wounded, Uebelacker was lying motionless on the ground. His blackened face and military garb were soaked in patches of blood. "Wh ... where did they all come from?" Uebelacker attempted to focus in spite of his pain. His eyes were half closed in agony, and his breathing was labored. "Hush, Lieutenant," Ron said, kneeling over him. "I'm getting you out of here." "No. I can't move. Save yourself, Captain." Again, bullets began flying all about them. Death abounded. Ron, still kneeling, returned fire from his submachine gun and remained untouched, but Uebelacker took another bullet. He jerked in agony, as though something had exploded in his head. Ron's return fire halted the incoming fusillade, but now he was out of ammo. Suddenly an Arab was upon them, unsheathing a dagger; its sharp blade glittering in the moonlight. With uncommon speed, Ron jumped to his feet, sidestepping the Arab's charge, in the same instant hitting him squarely in the throat with the barrel of the submachine gun, smashing his windpipe. The deadly blow hurtled the Arab backwards to the ground. His eyes saw no more. Hastily, Ron returned his attention back to Uebelacker. The lieutentant's eyes were closed. On his knees again, Ron gently shook him. "Lieutentant." There was no answer. Ron quickly took his pulse. It was indistinct. Then, with enormous effort, Uebelacker partially opened his eyes in a bewildered stare; rapid gasps coming from the back of his throat. "You're not wounded," he grimaced painfully. " blood." His mouth fell open with his final breath. Ron looked at him stunned.
