I have spent most of my life accumulating stories and influences and have finally decided it's time for me to start assembling them into works of my own. I have augmented a lifetime of learning and reading with a BA in English, and have written for television and newspaper. ...more

It is the beginning of my second series, which actually takes place in history before my first series, a sort of but not really prequel to The Amazing Morse series. I try to make all my books complete stories of their own so you can pick any of them up without having to commit yourself to something that may never end (I have a definite end in mind, but I see a lot of writers willing to continue a series for as long as readers are willing to pay for the next installment. Seven Stones has a sequel, but it also has a firm ending, not a setup for the next book) . So while I love all of them and find each of them special in its own way, I have made the conscious decision to make Seven Stones the wide door through which readers are most likely to pass :)(less)

Beneath The Surface (An Allegory)

 

There was once a large pier from which, in the before time, sail boats used to sail to all parts of the world. But now the giant metal behemoths rule the waves and the sail boats are seen there no longer.

Bereft of its former purpose, families now use it to launch their personal water craft, fish from, and picnic on. On a warm summer day, water craft roil the waters as children play upon the s

“I leafed through a book tonight in search of a certain quote. Leafed. What a wonderful, natural feeling. So much more appropriate to human beings than searching with Google.”

James Rozoff shared a quote

“Art is not a diversion, it is the summit of human understanding. Literature is not the construction of a beautiful though frail glittering glass ornament. It is the creation of a prism through which we are able to see the world we live in in a way we never have before. It is not the plaything of ivory tower intellectuals nor an escapist drug for bored housewives, but the raw, pulsing stuff of life, the essence, the soul.”

Quotes by James Rozoff  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Vulgarity is like a fine wine: it should only be uncorked on a special occasion, and then only shared with the right group of people.”
James Rozoff

“Sheep only need a single flock, but people need two: one to belong to and make them feel comfortable, and another to blame all of society’s problems on.”
james rozoff

“The places of quiet are going away, the churches, the woods, the libraries. And it is only in silence we can hear the voice inside of us which gives us true peace.”
James Rozoff

“Science is the process of obscuring the marvelous with explanations.”
James Rozoff

“I pity the atheist, for he can never fully appreciate a sinful pleasure.”
James Rozoff

“Vulgarity is like a fine wine: it should only be uncorked on a special occasion, and then only shared with the right group of people.”
James Rozoff

“Why, if there is anything in supply and demand, life is the cheapest thing in the world. There is only so much water, so much earth, so much air; but the life that is demanding to be born is limitless. Nature is a spendthrift. Look at the fish and their millions of eggs. For that matter, look at you and me. In our loins are the possibilities of millions of lives. Could we but find time and opportunity and utilize the last bit and every bit of the unborn life that is in us, we could become the fathers of nations and populate continents. Life? Bah! It has no value. Of cheap things it is the cheapest. Everywhere it goes begging. Nature spills it out with a lavish hand. Where there is room for one life, she sows a thousand lives, and it's life eats life till the strongest and most piggish life is left.”
Jack London, The Sea Wolf

“But I am I. And I won't subordinate my taste to the unanimous judgment of mankind”
Jack London, Martin Eden
