Puppies: Best In Stew (coming soon)

Are the voices in your head listening to you? Oh yes. Yes, they are listening to you. They know what you’re saying. Sometimes, they talk back. Sometimes, they sing along. Sometimes, they write children’s book with hidden messages placed in plain sight with a neon bow because, hey, a little style never hurt anyone. (This, of course, ignores the Great Style Massacre of 1973.)
Welcome to “Fun To Grow On” – the new children’s book series for adults. These books are not for little children or big babies. Each story is filled with blood and violence, sex and swearing – Seriously. This series is for adults. These are not parodies of children’s books but original stories for adults who still have a lot to learn… as do we all.
“Fun To Grow On” presents the second book in the series… Puppies: Best in Stew!

So Dream Something!

Just a word of gratitude...

As I'm getting ready to send the audiobook version of my new novel, indian paintbrush, to my distributor I feel a bit overwhelmed with a sense of thankfulness.Indian paintbrush will be my tenth - my 10th! - audiobook! And I have two more on the way this month! How did I get so lucky? Sure, a lot of it had to do with recognizing my opportunities and taking them. Some of it has to do with being married to a woman who understands the (often) unforgiving road I have to travel as an independent (soon to be hybrid once again) author. But there's a third factor, and that is you - anyone who has purchased my work, left a good review, Shared/Liked/or just plain told a friend.Thank you for helping make my dream come true!

indian paintbrush... coming soon...

In the early 70’s, in the middle of the night, on a dried out lawn in a broken down neighborhood in the Southern Californian community of Santa Ana, Nate Brewer’s mother held him as they watched his father leave them to an uncertain future. After that, it was every man for himself.
At least, that’s how Nate and his brother, Ira, saw it.
Now, Ira’s 45 years old. He’s losing his wife. He lost his career. His mom is losing that same home in Santa Ana and Nate thinks he may be losing his mind.
That’s just the beginning of indian paintbrush, a darkly, bitter-sweet comic tale told by Nate himself. He thinks he’s writing a journal for his psychiatrist but, as his recollections grow darker, he realizes that he has let every bad moment in his life keep him from reaching for anything good. This could be his last chance at remembering just what it is he can’t live without.
Some people grow up hoping things will change but, very often, the only thing time changes is our memories... Maybe there are times when “family” comes down to a group of people you just can’t stand, who you actively hate. And these are the people with whom you will share some of your fondest memories.
Look for indian paintbrush coming later this month! Posted: Sat 6th of September, 2014
