One day left!

One day left to get a free promo copy of Five Minutes from Midnight! Five Minutes is a fun short story that gives a great intro to Helen Barker and the Deep Dark Beyond Universe. I reference the events of Five Minutes in my first book Terminal Maneuver - it had such a big impact on Helen - but un... Read more of this blog post »

The edits

I have been re-reading the first novel in my The Forgotten battles trilogy and simultaneously plotting the course of the second novel, which makes for the occasional headache. Still, things are moving along.

I've reached the point where I am not even sure that the premise for the second novel will... Read more of this blog post »

Interviewed By My 22-Year-Old Self!

I've been participating in quite a few podcasts lately related to career development and how to carve a successful path and I've thus been reflecting on my own journey and wondering what Omar from twenty years ago would think of my life today. Would he be proud of my accomplishments? Would anythi... Read more of this blog post »

50-Word Horror Stories: The Return

Something about the approach of October always puts me in a somewhat spooky mood. (Oh, who am I kidding? I'm ALWAYS in a somewhat spooky mood.)

A couple of years ago I wrote weekly 50-word horror stories as part of a challenge on Medium. I really enjoyed doing these, and people seemed to enjoy re... Read more of this blog post »

From Rough Draft to Published Draft: How God Changes Us

Have you ever done something that takes a lot of time, hard work, and mental brain power and when it’s done you feel a mixture of pride, relief, joy, and like you’ve accomplished something pretty amazing? Writing books is that way for me. Each book brings new challenges, new things to learn and r... Read more of this blog post »

One Year Anniversary! Woo!

GIFTED WOMAN. MAN’S WORLD. Marion Mahony Griffin (1871–1961)

Newly arrived in Canberra a few weeks back, my first stop was tourist information at Regatta Point on the lake, looking for walking maps and concert leaflets. After pocketing the haul I went on through to a permanent exhibition on the creation of the city. It made a fascinating afternoon’s worth... Read more of this blog post »

Our Vietnam Wars Volume 3 –Coming Soon to a Kindle Near You! Be Looking





Want to know what the Vietnam War was really like? These are not war stories per se. They are still more stories of the men and women who served there — real people, real stories; Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard, US, Aussies, and KiWis from New Zealand. Some volunteered, some were...

My new sci-fi, The Lenz, is available for pre-order!

The Lenz by Damien Lutz

Struggling actor Yoshi Goto is disappearing.

He needs a starring role, and fast, or he’ll end up as invisible as the islander refugees living by the sea-wall. If only he could afford an augmented reality Lenz, then he could reinvent his career with a profile in the Lenz channels.

So when Maya Stu... Read more of this blog post »

A Roman Message in a Bottle

I find myself, at this late date, reading Cicero’s letters, which I am very ashamed to say I never bothered to look at before.

They are written with wonderful style and intelligence, as all acknowledge. Possibly more important, however, is their import. The ones I have been reading were written du... Read more of this blog post »

"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live"

Just as the Bible tells us to not suffer a witch to live, I shall not suffer a skeptic to live. Life is not a carefully indexed glossary of explanations with footnotes, citations and sources. Sometimes, mysteries remain mysteries. And it really eats these skeptics up.

Dora the Yellow Dingo

I believe this is one of the most touching pieces Berenice Walters, the Dingo Lady ever wrote. It is about her first Dingo, Dora.


Berenice got Dora ‘no questions asked’ straight from the wild in 1974, a time when Dingoes were considered noxious pests and vermin; to be killed on sight. Berenice na... Read more of this blog post »

Camp NaNoWriMo ended on July 31. While I did surpass my word goal and earned a Winner certificate, it was sad to say goodbye to my fellow virtual campers.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. 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
