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.

A Novel Ending

A funny thing happened on the way to the ending…

I’m loving my new being-an-author career, despite my inability to earn a living from it. (Yet?)

One of the things I enjoy is that each book feels like it comes with its own unique challenges.  I hope that means I’m learning as I go along.

For the current book in my Leeth Dossier series, Lost Girl (#5), there were two challenges.

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.
