October Review-o-Rama

So, October…. boy, there was a lot going on. Some of it planned, and some of it more like “scramble like a maniac to get things done.” Lots of good stuff, so I think it all bears a little repeating. I would have been easy to miss something. Here we go. October 11: A Boy, a Girl, and a Ghost The new novel is released! We are getting some stellar review so far: And, in …

Chupacabra: A Conner Bright Mystery Story

I’ve got a new story is out. This one is, technically, a short novella at about 80 pages long. I wrote it as part of my Campfire Tales program. It’s where you guys fill out surveys to help me write my next story and then get to read them, as long as you are a subscriber to my newsletter. (Yup, I’m trying to bribe you, but it’s a good bribe 😊) If you are a …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #10

Star Date: October 26, 2019 Hello Campers! I just love the month of October! Mostly it’s because October is our author’s birth month. We always try to take time out to celebrate birthdays in a special way, like traveling to beautiful places, hiking, and enjoying some favorite foods. This year for Robert, the favorite food was homemade gf/vegan mac ‘n cheese and coconut birthday cake for dessert. We didn’t need to travel too far to …

The ebook is on sale for $3.99 right now (it will go up to $5.99 in a few weeks). …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #9

Star Date: September 28, 2019 Happy Fall Campers! The late Summer sunshine has gently given way to cooler temps and a riot of yellow flowers here in Flagstaff. We’re trading in short sleeves for those warm sweaters now that there’s a chill in the air. I think there’s nothing quite like reading a good Campfire Tale alongside a steaming mug of hot apple cider or a spiced rum toddy. As usual, our author has been …

Dog People

My story “Dog People” is out in Snot-Nosed Aliens: Stories from Pulphouse Fiction Magazine. This is a new story, one I wrote in January when my wife and I were up in the Grand Canyon for her birthday. We had gotten there right before eight inches of snow fell on the canyon and were there after the storm and saw the canyon at its most beautiful. We were also between dogs, it having been about …

Daisy’s Heart

I am very happy to report that my short story, “Daisy’s Heart” is now available in Pulphouse Fiction Magazine #7! This is another one of the stories I wrote in 2017 during my Short Story Marathon.
