Paying It Forward … In Advance

One thing I've learned on my writing journey is the importance of book reviews to authors, especially those that are still up and coming. The big authors have an audience regardless. It makes sense; I'd simply never thought about it before. Since learning about that, I've started leaving Goodreads and Amazon reviews as soon as… Continue reading Paying It Forward … In Advance

How I Learned to Love Science Fiction

Stranger in a Strange Land

I love the advantages I had being a kid in the 1970s and a teenager in the 1980s.

Thanks to Bethel, a fabulous woman (and an incredible entrepreneur), and her sharing her discovery of podcasts on social media, I have a new source of entertainment.

Rekindling an Old Flame

Recently, I’ve begun reading again. I always knew that I liked to read, but I forget about the pure pleasure of it! Finding the time to start reading again is like returning to an old lover, one who accepts you with open arms and no guilt, as if no time had passed. [Author’s Note: Wait… Continue reading Rekindling an Old Flame
