Song of the Canyon Kid is my second novel and my first full-blown comedy. My previous works were the road rage novel Red Asphalt, a true travel tale called Please Hold Thumbs and my movie memoir In the Dark.
This one is a total cartoon. The main character is a singing cowboy. What is the last book you hummed? The characters are intentionally over-the-top and the entire tone is a sweet parody, an homage to the B-movies westerns of yesteryear. And in full disclosure, it's also a novelization. I based this novel on my comic melodramatic play entitled Song of the Lone Prairie or Poem on the Range. Prairie debuted in 1987 at the late, great Pollardville Palace Showboat Theater in Stockton, California, a production I also directed.
Pollardville was a magical place. We had the theater that specialized in melodrama and vaudeville. On the same property was a western ghost town that housed movie sets from the William Wyler film The Big Country. This is where we'd get paid to play cowboy on the weekends, duties that included robbing the train, engaging in fisticuffs and shooting it out with fellow gunslingers at High Noon. Pollardville was the birthplace of The Canyon Kid.
I realize the stigma of a novelization, but I felt creatively stagnated and needed an writing exercise to get myself in gear. Digging through my old writings, I came across his script for Lone Prairie. a melodrama I consider to be the culmination of everythin I learned at Pollardville. Adapting it into novel form came fairly easy, fleshing ot the characters and transposing the stage direction into prose. Soon, it took on a life of its own and I was hooked.
I loved revisiting my old characters like Nastassia Kinky and her brother Two Gun Boris, the fastest gun this side of the Ukraine. I also made The Kid's horse, Thunder, more of a supporting character. And the love story is something I never I thought I was capable of pulling off, but I feel like I did.
Overall I had a blast with this, the most fun I've had with a project since I wrote the original back in the '80's. Song of the Canyon Kid has given me back the joy of writing. By returning to my roots, I found that in order to move forward, sometimes you can go home home again.

Be it ever so hostile, there's no place like home.
When a straight-shooting, guitar-strumming singing cowboy known as The Canyon Kid returns to Dirt Clod, Missouri, he finds his hometown in ruins due to the machinations of a corrupt "hanging judge" named Basil Kadaver. With the help of his co-horts, a slinky seductress named Nastassia Kinky, owner of The Golden Goulash Saloon, and her brother, Two Gun Boris, the Judge has the town in his tyrannical grip and is beginning to squeeze. To make matters worse for The Kid, he also discovers that his childhood sweetheart, Darla Darling, is engaged to his sworn enemy, a desperado nicknamed "The Bushwhacker" who is now the town sheriff. How is The Canyon Kid going to save the day, let alone croon a few tunes, with a noose around his neck?
Song of the Canyon Kid is a wild and wooly western comedy romance that'll put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. It may even make you say "Yee-haw!"

People often ask what made me want to write a book at this stage in my life and career? Well, I'm not sure really. I guess I had a story in my head that I needed to tell. That often leads them to ask if the book is somewhat autobiographical. The story itself is in no way connected to my life but the interplay between the characters in some cases includes elements of relationships I've had in my time. So I guess the answer is maybe a little bit?
Some ask why paranormal? I can safely say I've been touched by practically every social disease that exists in one way or another - either personally or with family, friends - be it addiction, violence, disease, incest, mental illness, lack of faith, dysfunction, racism, sexism, or . . . you name it. I guess these pieces since already explored in my real life, lost some of their horror and only seemed interesting enough to write about when rubbed up against the 'other worldly'.
Who is Lyla? I get that one from time to time. Throughout the two years it took me to write the book, I believed Lyla to be more closely aligned to my daughter - saucy and sassy personality, appearance, multi-culturalism, etc. But later as I talked about the characters in detail, people closest to me pointed out that Lyla can only be 'me'. I guess I've accepted that to some degree at this point.
What about Brian, and the sick relationship between he and Lyla? Well, I'll keep the answer to that between my therapist and I.
And, Ollie? I sometimes think that character represents all I once thought I had to be in life: self-less, dependable, extremely capable, and hopelessly bound by the past.
And well, of course, there's The Bishop. Everybody asks about The Bishop. I can only tell you - He Exists. :)
Why do I think 'Standing in the Gap' is something special? Well, because I wrote it, of course. :) But beyond that, it falls outside the commonly defined lines of street lit or urban fiction. While it certainly has its share of drugs, violence and sex, it is not really about street life per se- in fact, I believe its gift is the juxtaposition between those raw elements and that of the magnificent and mystical world of the Seioka (the meaning of which you'll only understand if you read my book).
From the moment I sat down to key the first words of the book, I knew it would include lots of jaw dropping moments, tear jerker moments, and elements people with high sensibilities might find unacceptable or offensive. I wanted the reader to be completely surprised by the twists and shocked as the shameful secrets are at last revealed. I knew I had to deliver fast-paced action and the romance must be highly charged. I wanted the reader to truly feel it as the characters' lives spun out of control - there could be no 'down time' !
While paranormal is the backdrop, the story is on the whole a hybrid of a crime thriller, erotica, and a tiny bit of existential philosophy.
It would bring me absolute delight to have you read my novel!
What’s left when the truth destroys? Lyla Frazier, trying desperately to put the past and the shame behind her, seeks an answer to that question in Standing in the Gap. Ollie loved Lyla. He loved her in spite of the dark secret, in spite of her mental illness, in spite of the fact she would never love him the way he deserved because no matter how much she wanted to, Lyla couldn’t get a dead man out of her heart.
They believed the horror of the previous year was over, that the cost to end it had been paid with the lives of those they loved. But they were wrong. Soon they would each realize the evil taking place in Arcola was but one step in completing a new and even more sickening campaign to bring forth the Shakshi Mati. Could Lyla stop Noire, the flamboyant, sadistic Seioka at the helm of the new campaign? Would she find a way to let the past go finally, to move on, in love? Or would the darkness envelope her mind again, this time forever? Standing In The Gap is a love story, a story of survival, bravery, and self-discovery.

Constance (Connie) Pendleton and Connor Martin, both 13 years old, are friends and classmates in the upstate New York city of Billington. In the summer of 1954 they are vaguely aware that they might want to be something more than friends, for they are also vaguely aware of their budding sexuality and the distant allure of romance.
Connie and Connor tell their story, which encompasses details of Americans’ way of life in the 1950s, in the first person in alternating short chapters (1,500 to 2,500 words) in language appropriate to young persons of the time.
They befriend a new kid, Sidney Asher, also 13 years old, an orphan who has come from Calais, Maine, to Billington to live with his uncle, Clark Meredith, and the uncle’s new wife, Frances. Sidney is a shy, retiring boy of formal manners. Connie and Connor’s friendship helps him adjust to a new way of life in a different region of the country.
The three young persons’ happy discovery of one another is shaken, as is their world, when Connie and Connor come across a criminal plot that could severely endanger the lives of Sidney and his newfound uncle and aunt.
But Connie and Connor, like Nancy Drew joining hands with one of the Hardy Boys, become involved, at first reluctantly, then steadfastly. What ensues is a snooping about followed by a fast-paced chase, resulting in the two youngsters’ separately saving each other’s life.
Ending, of course, happily—and with a last-minute twist.
I have been a beach girl since I was little. First visiting Florida, where my grandparents had a home and many, many summers on the South Carolina Coast. When I went to college in Washington, D.C., I fell in love with the Delaware seaside town of Rehoboth beach. It’s old fashioned boardwalk and all American vibe has kept me coming back for decades, now with a husband and a teenager, who has spent almost every summer of his life there. I was married on a beach in the west African country of Benin. During my family’s many years living in Zimbabwe, we escaped to Durban or Cape Town any chance we got. Now we live in Rome and I have fallen in love with the Amalfi Coast. Luckily it is a very easy drive from Rome and we have been able to take many trips during our almost a decade living in Italy. I have spent the most time in Positano and Capri, but explore a little more of this incredible part of Italy with each trip south. When I am not enjoying time on the Amalfi Coast, I am in Rome, writing for my blog, helping others with their blogs and social media, working on my other eBook Rome for Expats and tweeting and Instagraming all the beautiful, delicious things I see.
First things first. The Amalfi Coast Travel Essentials Guide is not an exhaustive list of every single town and hotel and restaurant along the entire Amalfi Coast. Instead these are my personal insider tips and picks that I have gathered over many my trips to this bewitching part of the world to help you make the most of your trip to the Amalfi Coast.
The Amalfi Coast Travel Essentials Guide is not just hotels, restaurants and shopping secrets, I will also tell you the best way to get to the Amalfi Coast and where to park when you get there. This guide will help you find the best pizza in Positano, the best shoe store in Capri and the best pastry in Amalfi.
This guide has more than 100 entries to help you avoid tourist traps and travel delays and guide you to the very best the Amalfi Coast has to offer

It hasn’t been long since Fennel, a Sightless Groundling, and Peree, her Lofty Keeper, fell in love and learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems.
Fenn and Peree are determined to guide their people to the protected village of Koolkuna, but first they must convince them that everything they believe is a lie. An impossible task, especially when someone seems hell-bent to try anything—even animal sacrifice and arson—to destroy the couple’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties. Not everyone wants to uproot their lives in the forest, and those who stay behind will be left terribly vulnerable.
Fenn and Peree’s resolve to be together despite their people’s disapproval, and the constant threat of the Scourge’s return, pushes both groups to the breaking point. Unable to tell friend from foe, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future.
Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear.

I am English, living in East Sussex with my husband. A few years ago we went on an Aegeon Cruise starting in Greece and finishing in Istanbul. It is the same journey that Angie, the protagonist of my novel, takes - although, unlike us, she is going there to kill herself. She imagines that she and her dead husband can share the joy of their burgeoning child in the spirit world.
I am a painter and novelist, taking equal pleasure in both activities. Some of my work can be seen on my blog at http://artistricky.blogspot.com. Why not take a look at it - or even become a follower?
I was born in the old Queen Charlotte's Hospital in London which is within the sound of Bow Bells and that, officially, makes me a cockney, although I only occasionally use cockney rhyming slang!
My husband and I have seven adorable grandchildren - 2 born in Australia, 2 in America (New Jersey), 2 in Paris and 1 in Scotland. Luckily for us, our son and daughter and six of the grandchildren now live in England and the one who lives in Amsterdam pops back home quite often. Bliss!!
When the horror of nine-eleven occurred in 2001, I imagined how it would feel to be a newly-married, newly-pregnant young American woman who had lost the husband she adored in the atrocity. I fancied that in the depths of her despair she would decide to kill herself, especially if she believed in an after-life. THE SEA WITH DIAMONDS telling the story of Angie, the grieving young widow, was thus born.
Angie leaves her rented Brooklyn apartment to fly to Athens where she joins a cruise-ship bound for Istanbul. There she intends to slip unseen into the sparkling water of the Bosphorus - the stretch of sea her husband had become enchanged with and where, 4 months earlier, she had conceived on their honeymoon.
On board Angie, a brash Texan couple and their frail young friend Mary-Lou, together with an elderly English couple are allocated the same dining table. Mary-Lou and Angie slowly bond and Angie discovers that her new friend has reason to be even sadder than she has. Angie does not reveal that she has been married, is pregnant, knew anyone working at the World Trade Centre or that she has previously been to Istanbul.
Angie's resolve fluctuates but, by the end of the odyssey, during which Greek legends and real life have often intertwined, she has decided to go through with it.
The question is, can the elderly English woman who suspects Angie is disturbed and about to commit suicide save her?
Tina is an early school leaver who used to be thrown out of class for laughing too much. She's an unschooler at heart and an ungraduate who made her own education in life, she thanks everyone she's ever met, they all taught her something. She landed on Earth in Karlskoga, Sweden, 1969 and has tried to adjust ever since. Tina's writing takes her off the beaten track and the best writing advice she ever got was, write what you want to find out more about. She lives in Dublin, Ireland with her non-traditional family.
This story is rewritten more times than Tina can remember, it’s her learning to write in English story and she’s immensely proud for not giving up, but she has given in to the fact that she does tell a story differently. Tina loves dialogue, a lot, and she doesn’t pay attention to details as much as maybe she should, she likes the bigger picture, and for her deep hearted, radically honest conversations are it.

Together with her Irish twin brother, Torsten, the foursome take on school in a battle to regain ownership of their own lives.
In this often outlandish story, four teens already of age, fight against school as the only option to journey through the start of life, but violence, punishments and threats can change minds, will it change theirs?
Will Milla be allowed to become who she is or made to fall back into line and follow the mass schooling?
I am a general practitioner and have had an interest in genetics most of my working life (although I am not directly involved in the subject). I have followed developments in the subject over the years. Like most people, I suppose, I started thinking about my mortality when I hit my forties, and came to the conclusion that ageing is not purely a matter of wear and tear. I thought it very likely that somewhere in the human genome there is a gene or genes that influence ageing. Hence the book!
The book is 'faction' i.e the plot is a work of fiction, but the substance of the novel is about genetics. I have researched the subject and taken care to get the facts right. I believe that it is therefore all accurate apart from the 'ageing gene' which is my speculation.
For anyone who might be interested in genetics but knows little about it, I believe this novel to be an interesting and stimulating introduction to the subject.

I wrote my first novel when I was seven! All about a pony, a creature I wanted to own. I continued with my first publication the next year in the school magazine. After that I published poems and stories regularly in the school magazine, and went onto publish poetry mainly in my univesity journals.
Then life got in the way. Travelling to be more precise. I think I have visited, worked, or travelled around everywhere except South America and India. They are next on my list.
Now I am getting older there is more time for writing. I have lots to say, but perhaps not so many years to say them in.
'Blokes Muddling Through' is a collection of six short stories about men coping or not coping with their worlds.
Suddenly you’re a fifty year old male, hitting middle age. Time to ease up, spend more time with friends and family. Retirement - dread thought - looms. The hard work’s done, the future’s secure. Or is it? And where’s the family anyway? The wife has spread her wings, works, has hobbies. The children have grown up on you, turned into strangers. Your friends have moved on.
