Music Monday – Halloween #2 #MFRWauthor

Spooky! In honor of October, I’m continuing with my very favorite Halloween music. This one is undeniably spooky!  

Effing Feline ends Ed’s career #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, insist that Ed stop writing. Immediately. Right now. Why, you may ask? Because his work has achieved ultimate perfection. One line in today’s snippet tells the deep and honest truth, and nothing he could possibly write can top it. Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker is a Christmas novella and the 6th […]

Picture It – A budding book illustrator? #PictureIt

Picture It – A budding book illustrator My grandson, Wesley, drew this picture for me to illustrate my latest book, Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker. Remember what they say: don’t judge a book by its cover. What do you think — does Wesley have a future as a cover artist?      

She needs a Christmas Miracle #mfrwhooks

Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker, a holiday novella, is the sixth installment in my Alien Contact for Idiots series, though it can stand alone. The book opens five years from next November on a dark, rainy side street in Tacoma, Washington. Here’s the opening of the book. “It was the best of times, it was the […]

Music Monday – Halloween #1 #MFRWauthor

The Devil’s Dance In honor of October, here’s my very favorite Halloween music. John Williams, the world’s most famous movie composer (Star Wars, Superman, Harry Potter) wrote this for the film The Witches of Eastwick. The movie is very good, but not nearly as great as this Devil’s Dance!

Effing Feline, blackmailer #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am about to be rolling in catnip. Finally, I have some dirt to hang over the head of my pet human, Ed. Blackmail time! You see, while curled on the Mrs’s lap, I just saw the movie The Fugitive. A dude named Richard Kimble is searching for a heinous One-Armed Man. My […]

Ready for a Christmas Miracle? #mfrwhooks

It’s October, so new book today! Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker, a holiday novella, is the sixth installment in my Alien Contact for Idiots series. It’s been marinating in my cerebrospinal fluid for a few years now. While sitting in the orchestra pit, playing for live performances of The Nutcracker, I started wondering what […]

Effing Feline fears for his paws #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am starting excerpts from a new book. Not because I want to (I don’t care one way or another about Ed’s books, though don’t tell him that) but because he already has another book coming out. One in September, now one in October? He’s going to wear my beautiful paws down to […]

Out of action #mfrwhooks

Today is the last snippet from Love thy Galactic Enemy, — which is now live! I’m continuing with last week’s action scene, where we see Finn’s heroic side. Riding a grav sled while Minta, and a friend are returning from a clinic visit, a Finn is startled when a quartet of men attack. Up to […]

Effing Feline just wants to sleep #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, want to sleep. And when I want to sleep, I sleep, know what I mean? After all, I’m a cat. But today I can’t sleep because I have a blog post due, hiss the $#^!* thing. So here it is, quick and dirty. Read silently, don’t even move your lips, because I’m going […]
