Member Since
August 2012


Rex Fuller was born in Kansas City to a farmer's daughter and a seaman's son, in the Baby Boom's first wave. Raised in small towns of the heartland, within a day's drive west of the Mississippi, he attended Catholic schools and is still married to his high school sweetheart. He holds degrees from the University of Nebraska (BA & JD) and George Washington University (LLM). He was stationed as a military lawyer throughout the United States, often in "the Building," and in Europe. He is now a self-employed lawyer in Southern Maryland and is blessed with his wife, and grown son and daughter, all unimaginably beautiful.

Rex Fuller hasn't written any blog posts yet.

Carl Sagan was on TV a lot. Johnny Carson. PBS. Never liked him. Thought he was condescending and the very definition of “self-aware.” So, eventually, I paid no attention to him and never realized he had written a novel. The movie from it of the same ...more

One of the best books of any kind I've ever read. It formed the basis of the John Wayne/John Ford movie of the same name which has been hailed as the greatest western and among the best of all motion pictures ever made. Reading the book, you get the ...more

There's no way to know if the correlation is one-to-one but we can see in their work that a lot of great writers were obsessed with sex. Lawrence Durrell was certainly one. In this personal look at his family's near idyllic experience on Corfu (1935- ...more

Wolf Pack by C.J. Box
Rate this book
Clear rating
Well, that went fast. Probably Box's best written. Very tight and smooth.

Not sure what I can say about the content without spoilers. Maybe a couple of teases: there are two eponymous wolf packs, and only one is of gray wolves. Nate Romanowski's birds

Rex Fuller Thanks for asking Nila. It is my goal to get them on Nook by the end of the summer. They are available on Amazon in print and Kindle versions.

message 20: by Nila

Nila hey Rex
I just looked at B&N for your books and I can't find them in Nook version when will they be available?

message 19: by Michael

Michael Thanks for the book recommendation, I will definitely have to check that one out!

Diane Carey How could I forget Lee Child & Baldaccii! I s
have all of James Lee Burke to read! My library
Now ha books starting to stack on the floor
In lieu of the floor to ceiling shelves!

message 14: by Diane

Diane Carey How could I ever have forgotten Lee Child!

message 13: by Diane

Diane Carey You seem to enjoy Elmore Leonard. I have never
Read him but will have to give him a try! I read only fiction
and have a wide variety of taste depending
On my mood! I used to read 2 books a week but have slowed down
recently. I discovered Linwood Barclay lately
& find his books more unusual. I also found
C.J Box for a slower but interesting read. The
main character is a game warden in the
Wyoming mountains. Michael Connely is my
favorite but Vince Flynn is right up there with him!
For really unusual & non stop action try James

message 12: by Kay

Kay Rex,
If you are looking for a great book on writing I strongly encourage you to seek out Stephen King's book, On Writing. I've used in multiple times in class with my students as well as to improve my personal journal and editorial writing. It is a powerful book by someone that obviously knows what he is doing. Maybe I'm a little biased because he was teaching writing when he wrote it. I will say it is difficult to find except as new as people tend to keep it. I have had mine "borrowed" about 5 times and Half-Priced Books rately has one.
Best of luck in your endeavors.

message 11: by Sheila

Sheila I like Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, Jeffery Archer, John Grisham, Ayn Rand, David Baldacci, Irving Wallace many other good writers. Thank you Rex Fuller for invitation to be your friend. Happy reading

Matt Rex,
I noticed that you have several military books on your read shelf. One that I would recommend is the non-fiction "Thunder Run" by David Zucchino. It's about the final push into Baghdad by the 3rd ID. I just thought you might enjoy it.

Rex Fuller Thanks for the suggestion, Dave. Have read a few of Sandford's and I like them. I may be one of the few who prefer the Virgil Flowers to the Lucas Davenport books.

message 6: by Dave

Dave Wine Rex,
Connelly is one of my favorites, but John Sandford is at the top of my list. Great character development and great writing. Have you read his Prey Series, if not start at the beginning.

message 5: by Rex

Rex Fuller Pat, thanks. Yeah, have read all of Crais, and all of Child. I have yet to start the others (my habit is to read through all of an author I like). Currently working on James Lee Burke, who I suspect you would like if you've not already tried him.





message 4: by Pat

Pat Haggar Hi Rex,

I read a lot, mainly crime novels. I have read all of Michael Connelly's books over the years. Other favourite authors: Robert Crais, Lee Child, Peter Robinson, Stuart MacBride, Val McDermid, Tess Gerritson & Stephen Leather. Have you read any of these?

message 3: by Rex

Rex Fuller Thanks for friending. Looking forward to your reviews and comments - especially from another Cornhusker.
