New Release

I released a new book this week, Twisted Sister. It’s an experiment for me on a couple of fronts.

First, I love reading romance and I love writing romance but I’ve been focusing on mainly writing and marketing my science fiction for the last two years. I sort of let my romance books hum in the background without giving them much love.

I have a romance series called Romancing the Gods. Each book in that series takes a pairing from Greek mythology and re-imagines the characters in a modern setting. It’s a lot of fun to write and I squeeze it in between my other books sort of like a palate cleanser. I’m working on the fourth book in the series now.Read More

May Reading List

As usual I read a lot of stuff last month but a few really stand out.

Smooth Talking Stranger, copyright 2009, by Lisa Kleypas. I have to admit that this book hit all of my romance cookies. And I can’t say another thing about it because I don’t want to spoil it for you. This is one I’ll reread again because it was so satisfying.

The Big Sleep, copyright 1939, by Raymond Chandler. I was familiar with Chandler’s work because of Bogart playing his famous private eye, Philip Marlowe, in the film of the same name, but I had never bothered to actually read one of his books. I’m so glad I picked this up. I loved the story, loved the language/slang, loved the slow reveal of the mystery. I’ll be reading more of Chandler’s work now that I know how much I enjoy it.

Raw and Red Hot by Jonathan Shaw Harvard Magazine May/June 2019 A very interesting piece on how science is beginning to link inflammation with almost every chronic disease known.

The Lost Princess Man by John Barnes, Galactic Empires, copyright 2017, anthology edited by Neil Clarke. Usually I like maybe half of the stories in an anthology. Mr. Clarke did a fabulous job putting Galactic Empires together. I enjoyed most of the stories in it.

Looking Through Lace by Ruth Nestvold, Galactic Empires, copyright 2017,  anthology edited by Neil Clarke. Another great story from this anthology. I liked so many that I’m not going to list anymore titles. I read the stories in between books last month and was sorry to finish it. Pick up this anthology if you enjoy space opera. You won’t be disappointed.

New Release

I am slowly collecting the Junkyard Dog novellas into collections of three in between writing a new sci-fi series (the first book in the new series will be published in July). The second collection is now available at a discount to buying each novella separately.

Collection 2 contains Ruby City, Double Cross, and Spider Silk. Descriptions can be found on the Junkyard Dog page here.
