My new novel, GERRY’S WAR has arrived.  If you liked OLD FLAMES well, Captain Ormond is back.  He was pensioned out of Vancouver Fire amid controversy of all the murders and mayhem.  He’s offered a chief’s job in Niagara Falls where things are NOT what they appear.  Many of the same characters are here, but the story is quite different.

There was enough explanation of motive to make the character understandable and sympathetic. The tale, a futuristic Armageddon of natural causes believable with only a

Last year, the library in Beaumont graciously held a local author night with several other authors from another county also there.  The night was a big disappointment as maybe twenty people showed up.  I managed to sell a few books.  At least the display tables were free.  So next Saturday, the 5th of November, I managed to get a vendor

Category: Uncategorized Italy fun stuff.

My daughter’s wedding in Gargonza Castle in Tuscany was the ultimate 3 day celebration.  Then a tour of Venice, Florence, Pisa, Carrara marble quarry, and a swim in the warm Ligurian Sea topped it off.  Along the way were a few interesting images of Italy fun stuff.  As a writer I dig these goofy things.  I mean we have gluten-free-sugar-free,

I was invited to the Leduc Book Club nite and discussed FINAL RESPONSE.  They all liked it but a few wanted more from the ending, telling me a sequel was needed. I talked about the characters and that a few were taken from my career. The big man, Ben, was actually blended of two men I used to work with.
