4 stars for Colin McCool and the Vampire Dwarf, a  review for readersFavorite.com

The author uses a great beginning to start this outstanding story for older children. It will keep you glued to the pages and you’ll forget to breathe a few times. If you like faery people and where they come from…you are going to love this book. It is full of faery lore and information to delight lovers of this genre to no end.

The story is about Colin, who is a thirteen year old kid who lives in a small town name Farmersville.
For the past few months all has appeared to be fabulous and he can’t believe his luck. After all, the year before he had been made fun of, but now he is the star of his baseball team. His best friend, Jesse, is one of the best players there too. Colin is late for his game and crashes into an old man who doesn’t move and who is holding a stone in his hands. With the crash Colin starts seeing some very interesting things. His town is not as others perceive it. It is dirty, and the people look to be in terrible disarray. Nothing seems like it was before the accident. There are many weird and interesting thing and animals all over he never saw before. Is he in a nightmare? What will Collin have to do to save his town, family and friends?

You will find magic, leprechauns, spells and regular folks in this entertaining tale that will be enjoyed by pre-teens and young adults alike. Any future books in this series should also be great feasts for the minds of the young and the young at heart. It is a clean and all-around good story.

An Award! Why thank you

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Shaunna Gonzales, a great writer, has bestowed upon me what is called the “Liebster Blog Award.”

What is the Liebster Blog Award?

Legend has it that The Liebster Blog Award originated in Germany. Liebster means dearest or beloved, and Liebe is love. The award is meant to encourage readership of small, lovable blogs with fewer than 200 followers.

In accepting the Liebster Blog Award, the recipient (me) agrees to thank the person who gave them the award, link back to that person’s blog, and reveal five (5) snippets about themselves that readers may not know.

  1. Remember that the point of business cards and bookmarks is to draw people to your website for a sale.

  3. Your website should have new content at least once a week (more…)

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

To the exasperation of her tutors, (more…)

Executive Review of The Vatta’s War Series

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

The books in the Vatta’s War series are fast moving and full of excitement throughout. They contain space battles, spies, other people who do not like what is going on in their world, murderers (some of them in the character’s own family) and a lot of plots to keep you entertained. If you like SF and space travel, and are looking for something exciting to read… you should give this series a try. You may be more than entertained; you may have a great time… of course that is up to you.
