Dom Testa is an author, speaker, and broadcaster. For more than twenty-five years he has captained the morning radio show on Denver's Mix100.

His Galahad series of books for young adults (and young-at-heart adults) has an all-new look! Tor has reissued the adventures in a three-volume omnibus collection, and all three are available now.

If you're in the mood for some puzzling fun, check out all three of his Mindbender books. They're perfect for family gatherings, road trips, or your own quiet time.

Dom writes for middle-grade students, under the pen name Buster Blank.

His bizarre short fiction for adults is penned under the name Harlan Plumber. (Sheesh, this guy is like the Sybil of writers.)

If you've always dreamed of being published, his eboo

Hi Margaret! Here you go:
Comet's Curse: Triana and Gap
Web of Titan: Channy and Bon
Cassini Code: Merit and Lita

For the final three books, it gets a little tricky. Tor used photos of characters that they felt could be random crew members - although I think I see Alexa and Taresh on the cover of Dark Zone.

The new Galahad Archives books (omnibus collections of all six books in three volumes) don't have characters on the covers. I've found that some people love having characters on the covers, while others don't like it. How about you?(less)

I often encourage writers to leave their current project for a while and go write something else, either another story or an article or a blog post. Maybe poetry or music. The point is to reset your brain. When you come back to your original story you might be able to look at it with a fresh set of eyes and neurons.(less)

Don't Renew Your Vows - Rewrite Them

An interesting discussion came up on the radio show this past week. A listener had a question about couples renewing their wedding vows, a practice you’ll often see on landmark occasions like a 10th or 20th anniversary.

I gave it some thought during a commercial break and came to the conclusion that people might be looking at this event the wrong way....

This was recommended by a friend, and I'm glad I took her up on it. Written about 40 years ago, it's a time travel story that includes your basic shadowy government agency, a love story woven throughout, and intricate detail.
