Now this guy knows how to autograph

I finally hooked up with local music writer DX Ferris to do an article about his new self-help book based on the movie Goodfellas. When it was published in a community magazine Mr. Ferris quite liked it (he was being kind; the editors kind of did a number on my prose). He sent me an autographed c... Read more of this blog post »

Creepy or Brave?

VERSE 1
Young man, big fan, tell her how you feel
Wear her colors with the most passionate zeal
Go to every show and sit in the front row
If you don’t, then you will never ever know

Restraining order or even less quarter?
Open arms or even bigger charms?

Mercenary is Up!

Whoooo!! YES! Finally, I have finished re-writing the book, Mercenary.

This was not just an editing job. This was a complete revision and re-write. I’ve added scenes and changed some scenes, and fleshed it out a lot more.

The beauty of being able to revise/rewrite this series, is that not only am I... Read more of this blog post »

Book Review - Hearts Alight

The other day I had the pleasure of reading Hearts Alight by Elliot Cooper, and while I only gave it three stars on Amazon, I’d liked to take the opportunity to tease out the reason for giving it that rating, and recommend it to people I think would enjoy it more than I did.

First off, my rating s... Read more of this blog post »

2020 Troll Catastrophe Cleared for Takeoff

Well, at least CNN had the good sense last night to run a panel discussion on whether or not the media has over-covered the Mueller investigation.

It's a start, anyway.

MSNBC's sole focus has been all Mueller all the time for over 2 years now, and this - Mueller's "punt" - has only encouraged them... Read more of this blog post »

STOAT PACK BLUES

I'm equal parts fascinated by and repulsed by mustelids, the animal family that includes long, skinny, furry, smelly creatures like ferrets, mongooses and weasels (I blame Saki for this). Stoats are a mustelid common in Britain. So when I came across an opportunity to include the fabled and dread... Read more of this blog post »

Charity - A Poem

Charity

Why do we emphasize “Charity,”
while we don't take care of our own,
we feed the starving and donate aid abroad,
while we turn a blind eye here at home.

We profess such dying love towards man,
donate to those our last red cent,
while families go homeless and starving,
who can't afford food, clothi... Read more of this blog post »

Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
