Back in 2/2013, I published a sci-fi thriller, The Soul Cage on Amazon after not finding a publisher. Approximately two years later, I was contacted by creative.org. They’d picked it up off a Twitter promotion, and wished to re-publish it. I didn’t see the point, but they promised a promotional effort I wasn’t providing. I signed up. The Soul cage became a top-ten earning Sci-fi by summer, 2016. True to their word, New Chapter (part of Creativa.org) has now produced an Audio version of The Soul Cage on Amazon that went online 12/28/2002. So if you’re not the reading type, you can listen to The Soul Cage, and discover what happens to the soul when a person is teleported from on location to another. Go to bookernovels.com. And click on The Soul cage book cover to take you to amazon, and download the audio file.

There is one almost certain truth. Nothing today is as good as we remember it from the past. That is true of Christmas Trees today versus twenty years ago. I recall going with my father as a child to pick out our family tree. We normally went to a sm...

The phrase “fake news” first came to the public forefront during the 2016 Presidential election. I recall it first being used by candidate Trump, but it soon became a phrase dominating journalism. I figured I’d thrown in my two cents, since it seems a worthy blog topic.

Jack was soaked and shivering as he stumbled across the Espinosa’s fields toward their house. Lightening lit his path before the rumbling thunder vibrated through his body. The sound of thunder was replaced by angry shouts as he neared their front door. Jack’s fear and anger were reawakened. He realized, Jorge, his stepfather, was home from work. Jorge sounded drunk again. He was probably beating Jack’s mother, Esther.

This blog was inspired by the 1993 song Jesse by Joshua Kadison in which he sings how Jesse’s dreams are never free. Listening to this song got my thinking of how costly my own goals in life have been, and yet how rewarding those goals have been upon completion. By “dreams” I’m referring to distant goals in one’s life, not the mental images produced during R. E. M. sleep.

Making a good story great often involves including details of the story such as demographics and personal characteristics of the plot’s time and place. It’s for this reason that I typically write of places I’ve been and things in which I’m well versed. Otherwise, I depend on research. When writing my current historical -fiction novel “Team” which takes place in the 1940s, I’m depending more on research, since I wasn’t alive. The players and football weren’t hard to do, since I’d played football most my life. I t was the airplanes and their missions which required research.
