Picture It – Reading Fine Literature My youngest grandson has superb taste in literature! In case you don’t understand what I mean by ‘superb taste’, here’s an enlargement of the book’s cover. The hardcover edition of this science fiction novel hasn’t been available for over decade, so the book’s way older than he is:   […]

A cover reveal #mfrwhooks

What is the #1 hook that can loosen readers’ purse strings? The cover. So without further ado, here is the cover for Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September SFR release.

Effing Feline visits Gettysburg #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you the catty truth last week about the French Revolution. That’s not the only famous historical event that actually starred felines rather than humans.

Picture It- The Demon Tree Down the street from us is a park with a tree that looks like an ordinary mesquite . . . until you stand beneath it and look up. My son and his friend call this tangle of grotesque branches the Demon Tree.
