I've published a number of short stories, and authored five novels, and five screenplays. I'm a former board member of the Chicago's Screenwriter Network, where I lectured on the history of science fiction, horror, and fantasy in films, as well as on writing screenplays. I'm also a former rock and roll guitarist and songwriter from the Golden Age of 1964-1984.

“Now remember,” Akira whispered, “if it moves, salute it. If it doesn’t move, pick it up. If you can’t pick it up, paint it.” “What if it is snoring?” Makki asked. “Then you wake it up.”

They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it's too late.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Joe Bonadonna Hey, Quinton! I do plan to check out your book. I'm just totally swamped with everything --- and Facebook is even getting overwhelming. I rarely get over to GoodReads, and will probably delete my account in the near future.


Quinton Veal Hey thanks Joe, sorry I haven't been updating i just gotten your request.Wow! i need visit on a regular here.


Valjeanne Jeffers Hi Joe, glad to see you made it over, and thanks for the add :). Have a most excellent day!
