Member Since
August 2013


A native New Yorker, born and raised in the Bronx, I spent my
adolescence years in Fort Apache, the South Bronx 41st precinct during
the 60’s. Raised on blues, soul, and rock and roll gave me the heart of a
flower child. Educated by the turmoil of Vietnam, Civil Rights, and the
Sexual Revolution turned me into a gladiator. Realizing the
precariousness of life gave me an adventurous outlook to try anything
once, and if it did not kill me, maybe twice.

12 years of Catholic education and a couple of years in college spread
between wild drug induce euphoric years, which did not kill me, gave me an unique moral compass that swings in any direction it wants. A scientific mind and a spirit that nothing is impossible if you want it bad enough guides

Yes, I'm talking about the Star Wars world. Who wouldn't want to be a Jedi Knight? Wield a light saber and use mind control to bend people to your will. Move objects like X-wing fighters with just the wave of a hand. It is a world, or worlds to be more truthful, that mixes sci-fi and mysticism to create an experience that would thrill you to your soul. That is, of course, until you lose an arm or get cut in half.

An Extraordinary Romance

Love and Madness by Athina Paris

This is a grand epic romance by Athina Paris. There are a few other superlatives I could throw in to describe the scope of this story and the talent of its story teller. This is no ordinary love story and she is no ordinary romance writer. Even before I was half way through Love & Madness I jumped into another novel by her just to get a greater exposure to her work. She is that powerful of a w
