The Age of Butthurt

I remember the glorious days when I would write happily and feel the creativity just gushing out onto the page. My stories (even the spooky ones) were simple and sweet, filled with all the freshness and excitement from clear eyes and an uncluttered mind. I wrote without inhibition. I wrote to entert Read more of this blog post »

Dr. Beaumont's Ghastly Experiments

When Alexis St. Martin is accidently shot in the stomach while working in the American Fur Company store in Mackinac Island in 1822, surely he believes the end is near. As the doctor rushes to the scene, a crowd of aghast fur traders and store clerks watches as the unfortunate victim’s partially-dig

A NEW REVIEW FOR BOUNTY

Another great review for my novel, "Bounty":

"Bounty" is masterly constructed with the primary context, disturbances in the Middle East and a young, ambitious and intelligent boy’s fight for a better life. At first, I did not know what to expect but author, Darryl Greer’s skill kept me entertained an Read more of this blog post »

Another Sleepless Night

The impact of sleep deprivation is something we tend to downplay as a society. There have been numerous studies published on sleep disorders and how lack of sleep impacts our ability to function, how it threatens the systems of the body and ultimately our health. Lack of sleep weakens our endocrine

8-9-20 DRAGONFLY

Dragonfly with invisible wings
Decades ago landed in a swamp
Drawn by a young boy
Coloring within the lines
Using greens, browns, and clouds
A prisoner of perfection
But bound to be successful when grown

Dragonfly flitted to next school desk
Sitting on the shoulder of a rebel girl
Who just didn't need or wan Read more of this blog post »

Alexa vs. Audible

I told myself that I could just get Alexa to read to me. That way I could save some money. But Alexa sounds like a retarded robot while reading books. I don't like that. So, I went ahead and got Audible. That's much better.

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
