Off the Wall Inspiration

Once a month the Science Fiction Romance Brigade authors showcase snippets from new releases, works in progress, cover reveals or other fun things. Check out all of this month’s participants. My topic for this month is a wall.  Specifically, the office wall behind my desk, and how it inspires me. It’s pretty unusual for an Arizona author […]

Effing Feline takes over the universe

I, Effing Feline, am the most literary cat in the universe. Last week I thought I ruled the literary galaxy, but I’ve expanded my dominion to the whole universe. A little romance, anyone? I’m presenting another selection from the latest WIP, Alien Contact for Heroines, by my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. This selection comes a few […]

Effing Feline survived — whew!

I, Effing Feline, lost something precious a few nights ago — sleep. Why? Because there was a lot of shooting in my neighborhood.  I survived, though it was extremely close — and I was, of course, extremely brave throughout the ordeal. My pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine, says there was no shooting. It […]

Effing Feline is NOT Garfield

I, Effing Feline, am piteously hungry. Last year my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine, had turkey for Christmas and I had great leftovers. This year, his family had lasagna, instead. Garfield likes lasagna, but real cats do not like lasagna. I had cat food for Christmas dinner. Cat food! On Christmas! Despite my growling stomach, I’m […]

Effing Feline plays with cat toys

I, Effing Feline, the Most Literary Cat in the Entire Universe (c), love my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. He put a tree in the house and hung up dozens of shiny cat-toys (ornaments, he calls them). All for me! In return, I’m presenting another selection from his latest WIP. It picks  up right after last […]

Effing Feline has nightmares

I, Effing Feline, the Most Literary Cat in the Entire Universe (c), am presenting another selection from the latest WIP by my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. Dusty Johnson lives and works at an underground research facility run by alien Kwadrans. One night she awakens to find a stranger in her bedroom. “Who are […]

Effing Feline, NaNoWriMo #4

I, Effing Feline, am delighted that NaNoWriMo is over. I may get the petting I deserve, now that my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, finished the draft of Alien Contact for Heroines — all 69,472 words of it. I have chosen another selection from Heroines. The hero, Reese, has just kissed the heroine, Dusty, for the first … […]

NaNoWriMo 2015 update

Like hundreds of thousands of people around the globe, I’ve been taking part in National Novel Writing Month, during which I pledged to write 50,000 words of a new novel.  And I did it. You may noticed the lack of exclamation point at the end of the previous sentence.  That’s because I’m too tired for […]

Effing Feline, NaNoWriMo # 1

I, Effing Feline, the Most Literary Cat in the Entire Universe (c), have watched in exaspurration as my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine, wastes time writing a novel in a month. Do you have any idea how little he’s petted me?  The man is falling down on his job. In retaliation, I’m switching from a thoroughly […]
