L. J. Kendall failed to drown on five separate occasions on Sydney's northern beaches. He worked in the IT R&D field while extremely happily married for 30 years to an adventurous mediaeval scholar 22 years his senior until her death in December, 2014.

His pile of books-to-be-read has grown to 240 or so, as he concentrated on working with ThEditors.com to get his first three novels ready for publication.

He's writing The Leeth Dossier because the main character has been demanding it - and she can be pretty insistent when she's decided something. She wants to know what's going to happen next!

Luke believes that honesty is the best policy, that 95% of people are good and kind, and that you get out of life what you put in.

The Heroine’s Journey

I think many people are familiar with the idea of “The Hero’s Journey” (by Joseph Campbell), but what about “The Heroine’s Journey”?

If I ever heard of it, I assumed the phrase simply meant the Hero’s Journey applied equally well to women.

Maureen Murdock, a student of Campbell, came to believe it did not. She developed a model of a heroine’s journey based on her work with women in therapy. But whe

Wild Thing (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 15, 2015 06:42PM
Description: IN 2036, magic returned to a world which neither needed nor wanted it. Several years later, an unusual young child is acquired by Dr Alex Harmon for his magic research at the Institute for Paranormal Dysfunction. He sets Sara to hunting an imaginary creature, unaware it is both real and far more dangerous than anyone could know. Sara, too, though, has her own hidden depths. She'll need them. At the Institute she strikes up an unlikely friendship with Godsson, one of the world's most powerful mages. But when Sara's unique magic finally unfolds, Dr Harmon discovers the deadly consequences of creating an archetypal Huntress. While from a place far beneath reality, where Godsson helped slay the Enemy of Mankind, some thing, or things, have come hunting. And their first targets are Godsson, and Sara.

Mangalam Shiva EMPTY FISTS BY MANGALAM SHIVA.
Dear Friend,
How are you? I am glad to note that some of my friends have already read my book and have posted their comments in Goodreads. I got great inspiration & encouragement from their reviews. Some of my friends have marked my book as to read. I am sure the other friends have already committed to read other books and will decide to read my book in a few days.
The stories revolve around situations, characters and messages pertaining to India. It is possible some of my friends in the other countries may find the stories intriguing. If at any time of reading, my friends need any elaborations, it will be my pleasure to share my ideas with them. Such discussions with readers will delight me immensely. Wishing you all the best, MANGALAM SHIVA.
