Danny and the Viking Funeral

I’m not too happy with humans at the moment, but I’ll say hello anyway. My name is Danny. To my legions of fans I’m known as Danny the Dog.

Today I want to talk about my human, his name is Andrew and he is a real idiot! Andrew wants a Viking funeral. Do you know what a Viking funeral consists of? I didn’t think so, and neither did I until Andrew opened his big yap!

When a Viking died, they put him o Read more of this blog post »

First of all let me say that I am not very good at writing book reviews. I tend to say that I liked the book (or not) and what I liked about it (or not). I don’t give a synopsis of the plot or allude to the main characters. Although those are the kin ...more
My Name Is Danny by Andrew Joyce
"This book is a reminder of all the fun that the fans of Danny enjoyed each month, when he penned his own article about his adventures and encounters with humans and four-legged friends alike.

Not all was harmless fun as poisonous toads were ingested, " Read more of this review »

“Read, read . . . and then read some more. Read everything you can get your hands on! Reading to a writer is as medical school is to a doctor, as physical training is to an athlete, as breathing is to life.”
Andrew Joyce

“She pondered on how she had come to be as that particular place, at that particular moment, at that specific time in her life. Why, at fifty-three years old, was she lying on the hard ground, about to have a shootout with a murderer?”
Andrew Joyce, Resolution: Huck Finn's Greatest Adventure

“Honorable men do not steal young girls away from their home no matter how much thy want to be stolen.”
Andrew Joyce, Resolution: Huck Finn's Greatest Adventure

“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
William Faulkner

“Read, read . . . and then read some more. Read everything you can get your hands on! Reading to a writer is as medical school is to a doctor, as physical training is to an athlete, as breathing is to life.”
