The World According to Garp was perhaps the first sign to a troubled young man that his life might very well be okay. It was incredibly reassuring to see that a young man from such a deeply interesting background can find his niche in life. G. Russell Gaynor was not nearly as challenged as T. S. Garp but until the revelation of the character, relatively speaking Russell was the weirdest kid on his block. His father, a career United States Navy man, taught him how to stand up to face the most challenging aspects of life including the unknown. His mother, a nurse and a technician for the U.S Geological Survey, taught him how to love and how to understand.

Russell was 5 when he found that people should be responsible for what they say when h

Appearing in the SylverMoon Chronicles (serials in volumes I through V), they are fun to write and read. She's the brains behind The Scharr (Scar). An aging vigilante with his only super-power being his wife's genius! As he nears the age of retirement, The Scharr is getting slower and weaker - Agnes has tweaked the life out of the suit and time is catching up to them.

Now, out and about... Leia and Han rank up there with T'Challa and Ororo (Black Panther & Storm). I also have a soft spot for Mary Jane Watson and Peter Parker though Spider-Man and Black Cat was a lot more fun!(less)

I have had the very good fortune to enlist a process that seems to contend with the possibility quite nicely. While I do experience periods where a new idea comes crashing into a developing scene that is COMPLETELY unrelated to what I am currently writing, a few moments spent jotting down that idea seems to do the trick.(less)

The Silver Feather by Joanne Van Leerdam
"Short, Dark Tale

Interesting tale of death and loss and the process of grief. Spurred by a love he never shared, Phil seeks to deal with the loss of a friend.

Entertaining short story that has a fun twist at the end. " Read more of this review »
The Silver Feather by Joanne Van Leerdam

G. Gaynor is 10% done with Genesis of Light: What the... Who the... Where the... holy crap - what an opening!!! For the reader expecting a smooth and easy introduction to the characters and the storyline,... FORGET IT!

There's a definite slow down after that - giving the reader a chance to catch their breath and relax... I'm not going to fall for such an obvious trap!
