After being born at an early age, I made it through the K-12 educational system (though I didn't like it). From there, I went on to pick up a graduate degree or two, travel a bit in the U.S. and other countries, and become a writer, among other occupations (all of them legal --cross my heart!). For the background of this book, though, one of the most important things about me is that I've been a lifelong admirer of strong, brave heroines who face life without flinching, and especially of kickbutt heroines: ladies who can swing a sword, handle a gun, or throw a punch; who can go toe-to-toe with a villain, look him (or her) right in the eye, and dish out justice. Growing up, I was a big fan of the ladies of Charlie's Angels and The Avengers ( ...more

"Thad and the G-Man's Excellent Adventure" was a collaboration, jointly written with Giovanni Gelati of Trestle Press, back in the days when they were publishing my work (I'm with Pro Se Press now). So it took longer to write than a single story would; I'd write my segment and send it to him, then wait for him to send his next segment back, and so on. But as I recall, the whole process probably took less than a couple of weeks.

Like the individual stories from The Smoking Gun Sisterhood collection that Goodreads lists as free-standing e-stories, this one isn't available any longer for purchase. That's because Trestle Press no longer has publication rights to my work (and I haven't asked Giovanni's permission, as co-author, to publish it elsewhere).(less)

“Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit!”
