Effing Feline diets #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you my greatest ambition awhile back — namely, to become this 35-pound chap: But Ed, dam his writerly flow, took me to the vet. The vet said I’m already too fat. And she put me on a diet! I’ve outsmarted her, though, and Ed, too. I’ll tell you how after this […]

More like a beginning #mfrwhooks

Time for another hook from Rescuing Prince Charming, a near-future sci fi romance. Dusty Johnson, a mild-mannered tech writer and an alien Kwadran guard have discovered a ticking time bomb hidden in an unfinished starship prototype.

A Ravin’ Review #1

Constellation XXI just got a rave review, and I’m so tickled that I want to share it with you. Review site Whiskey With My Book ~ And a cozy spot to enjoy them both really liked the book. Quoth the Ravin’: I first started reading Constellation XXI and got distracted by names that were familiar – that’s when […]

Effing Feline needs help! #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, do NOT need help, no matter what the title of this post says. I am perfect as is, or as close to perfection as you humans will ever hear purr. But Ed . . . Let me tell you, that man needs help. Seriously. He’s written a whole book but he doesn’t […]

Effing Feline’s greatest ambition #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am the kind of amazingly complex character you authors can only dream of creating. I have more depth than any cat who ever lived. I am a stable genius, yet also a fierce hunter — and I’m humble, to boot. But am I satisfied with my perfection? Never! I have yearnings, aspirations, […]

Picture It — The barrio #mfrwauthor #PictureIt

Picture It I’ve decided to try to start a Thursday feature on my blog — a feature that requires little writing, hence time. Each Thursday I’ll post a photograph I’ve taken. I find these photos interesting and hopefully some of you will, too. This picture of a church was taken in the old part of […]

Effing Feline’s PSA #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, hate heat. I know, I know — most cats love heat so much they’ll lie on a radiator in a sunny window. All I can say is they’ve never done it in Arizona. I tried it . . . once. Here’s what I looked like afterward. Viewer discretion advised. If you have […]

Picture It — The birth of the Web #mfrwauthor #PictureIt

Picture It I’ve decided to try to start a Thursday feature on my blog — a feature that requires little writing, hence time. Each Thursday I’ll post a photograph I’ve taken. I find these photos interesting in themselves. Hopefully some of you will, too. This one was taken during an IEEE technical writing conference in […]
