The Walled Garden



I would give you this rose

But you are shut in the walled garden

Among your bitter herbs

I would show you the sun

But you have turned your head away

Into your own shadow


I would sing you asong

But it falls silent by the sad waters

Where are you walking?


I would touch your hand

But i cannot reach you when you are

Lost in no known country

Will you not turn and…

Justice is Not Equal, It is only Fair

After taking a hard look at the facts surrounding the recent jury verdict, I can see how it is possible to come to a decision of "not guilty". We may be looking at the case and for that matter all cases, from the wrong perspective.

It is plain to see that based on…

I've been spinning my own webs for a while now. One strand is my site (, another is, Facebook (and countless other social sites) and then, of course, this blog.

As the web grows, I seem to be catching a lot of delightful little things. I often find wonderful, positive comments from you, my readers. It really makes my day to see someone respond to my words.

Another neat thing is all the people in "the… Continue

Creating a Scifi Universe

I was recently asked how I could keep a whole made up Universe inside my head.  First mistake was assuming thats where my brain was.  It can be eaiser than it sounds if you know how to use your God like powers.

Its like the saying, "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?"  When creating a scifi universe it does make a sound.  As a matter of fact just before the bark hits the grass, the grass changes to a bright, blinding, holy white…

The Media, The Networks, The Journalist

Watching a documentary on Bloomberg television about media mogul Rupert Murdock has revealed a lot. The war of Fox News is not about Liberalism and Conservatism as it may appear. Rupert is a very shrewd business man and he is feared. While there will be casualties among the many who are employed across the Murdock Empire, he will stand as a fierce businessman who knows what he wants and what it takes to get it. There is no doubt that the Murdock Family will continue on far after he is passed…

Wolf Hunt Werner A. Lind


“Lifeblood” & ”The Gift”  are Werner Lind’s other works to date; they are vampire stories. He moves on to tackle something new, werewolves. I enjoy Werner’s work; I think he is an exceptional talent, and currently I am working with him on an installment of The Author’s Lab/Collaboration. The twist and bend of it is that he has a certain kind of vampire, Laurie Bowler has a certain of vampire , so we are going to have them meet a little bit down the road in…

Counter Point Mark Miller has his time and two cents

There’s this guy I have somehow become entangled with, but don’t remember quite how. Probably through Facebook. You know how you seem to accumulate people on there, like putting a book on a shelf and accumulating dust? When you go back a week or two later, wow! Where did all this dust come from?

Maybe that’s a bad analogy because Giovanni Gelati is anything but dusty. I can’t imagine he sits still long enough to gather dust. This guy is one of the most outgoing, supportive and…

Bar Anticipation The Bar Series The Author’s Lab/Collaboration Series Big Daddy Abel & Tommy Jannarone


Is the title long enough for you? How hard do you think it was for Big Daddy Abel to make the cover, trying not just to fit the title but all the names on the cover? I think he did an amazing job to say the least. What is this about and why did we do it?

Good question and the answers are easy. BDA is in a rock band, he is one of the vocalists and plays the guitar. Tommy owns the incredible bar known as Bar-A, and me , well I have been there to meet and yap with BDA and enjoy…

Targets Down Bob Hamer

Is this fact or fiction? That is the rub with this. Bob Hamer was an undercover FBI agent for 25 years before he decided to write his awesome suspense filled novels. I have interviewed Bob a few times on The G-ZONE, my blogtalk radio show, and he flat out says that is the part of the fun of the novel. Can we the reader  figure out what he really did and what he made up to weave the fabric of the novel together? I can’t; I am not smart enough and besides if he did any or most of what is in…

Xander’s Demise :Zorza the Alien Book Two Cody Toye

I am a big fan of the work the Toyeman does, kind of hard not to be once you read some of his work: The Dribbles The Squirrel Series, Zorza, Intangibles Series, and the Toye Box Collections of Children’s Stories. His work covers different genres and age groups; I love the versatility, heart and passion his work contains. Zorza is a great example of what he likes to do and how he does it. This is actually a prequel to the first Zorza digital short story and gives us the…
