Leave a comment

What a great father’s day, I got exactly what a wanted!

Hung out on the couch all day with my girls, playing and watching movies. (Tortilla Soup, & Land that Time Forgot – my picks,The  Incredible – Gracie’s pick). No work, an only checked my email and FB once. My favorite pizza for dinner…it was great!

Oh, and I get a new hat for father’s day every year, here’s this years:

Messes

So, we had a major trashing of the living room this morning, followed by several hours making Gracie pick it up, and lots of tears.

At one point, after about the hundredth request for “help”,  I heard myself say, “I’m sorry honey, but daddy doesn’t clean up all your messes for you. Sometimes you have to clean them up yourself.”

Spent the last hour wondering if I just answered the question of “unanswered” prayers…

Today it actually felt like summer, so the pickle and I packed up the joggin’ stroller and headed for the park.

Here are a few snapshots of the great time we had!

Now Taking Pre-Orders for Four From Left Field

Leave a comment

Dearest Reader,

We’re now taking pre-orders for my upcoming short story collection, “Four From Left Field.”

I’m very excited about the release of this collection, which includes some of my favorite stories that just didn’t quite fit anywhere else.

Four From Left Field

A short story collection

It was not the great atomic bombs of the nineteen-fifties, or the horror
of nuclear conflagration. No, the end of the world came with celebration,
and stargazing, and the pop of countless champagne corks.

Somewhere along the Pacific Crest Trail, Horatio Nolan Smith,
trail-name Rat, missed the whole thing.

*

In The Light at the End of the Tunnel, Cal Taylor’s hunting trip becomes
a fight for survival, as he battles the shadowy demons of his past, and the
all-too-real predator that stalks him through the wilderness.

*

Endeavor to Eden offers a terrifying glimpse of Earth’s near future, where
a last handful of men and women make a desperate attempt to escape the
“new order” that would hunt them to extinction.

*

Allana Jenkins sacrificed her career to see that her once-loving husband
realize his dream of becoming a lawyer, but now that he’s successful, she
finds herself trapped as the wife-done-wrong. In her desperation, she’s
approached by an old woman whose power is both compelling and
mysterious, who suggests a solution she’s never considered before.

From adulterous lawyers to world killing comets, from an genderless future society, to man-eating grizzlies, Four From Left Field is a collection of my more bizarre flights of fancy…none of which have anything to do with baseball.

These stories are a little edgier than my novels, have less fur than my hunting stories, and offer a little something for everyone.

I’ve set up a PayPal link for Paypal Members or credit card orders. (You do not have to be a PayPal member to use this link.)
