(Mark Ian Kendrick)

I wish I could say I come from a long line of creative types, that creative endeavors were encouraged, that creativity was a hallmark of my family. Alas, I'm the outcast... and DAMN proud of it.

In fact, I'm the only gay member of my family on both sides for generations. I know. I did our family's genealogy on computer a decade ago just to find the others. No gays. No painters. No writers. No artists. No inventors. No intellectuals. Just Republicans. And those addicted to mythological beings made up during the Bronze Age.

So, let this be a lesson to everyone. In every boring family a black sheep must be born to create a fresh look, to stir the pot. To force change! Words are power. Unleash them!

True Magic - (c) 2013

Writing as Scott Galister once again, I've published my latest m/m 3-act story called True Magic.

Altho I normally prefer sci-fi, fans have continually expressed their interest in another contemporary fiction offering. So, in an attempt to complete that mission True Magic appeared. I had a few more ideas still cooking since The Heart of the Cluster, which was purely scifi. Those ideas were in the Read more of this blog post »

“It’s funny how we think life works a certain way because of TV and movies. Most people don’t really think about how scripts are edited and how people get to practice their lines and rehearse. If one doesn’t get it right they get to redo the scene until they do. In real life what’s missing or not working only comes up when we’re going along full blast. We end up being the editors of our lives only while we’re running in real time.”
Mark Kendrick, Desert Sons

“The past only has power over you when it's forgotten... ignored or repressed.”

“If you think that it would be impossible to improve upon the Ten Commandments as a statement of morality, you really owe it to yourself to read some other scriptures. Once again, we need look no further than the Jains: Mahavira, the Jain patriarch, surpassed the morality of the Bible with a single sentence: 'Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being.' Imagine how different our world might be if the Bible contained this as its central precept. Christians have abused, oppressed, enslaved, insulted, tormented, tortured, and killed people in the name of God for centuries, on the basis of a theologically defensible reading of the Bible.”
Sam Harris, Letter to a Christian Nation

You're welcome! You can get both either thru Amazon or B&N, thus they're compatible with either a Nook or Kindle.

I hope you enjoy them.
