Mike wrote this short poem just after the Tsunami hit back in 2005. As it's the fourth anniversary, he thought it was appropriate to post it here.
A SURVIVOR’S LAMENT
Claim me not yon winter’s tide
Your wrath cuts sway yet does not hide
The palm bends nigh as I embrace its girth
Its roots hold fast beneath the earth
I cling for life at rooftop height
The stars begin to show the night
Daytime comes,… Continue

Normally I don't review movies. I absolutely loved the new Star Trek movie and thought J. J. Abrams did a wonderful job as did all the actors on the movie. I very much look forward to the NEXT one already contracted. However, tonight I had the most wonderful cinema treat - I saw Avatar in 3D! IF you hadn't planned to see this movie at the theaters - I encourage you to do so! Not only are the special effects worth it but the plot and acting are excellent. I really hope to see it again - even… Continue

I know it has been a while since I posted anything on my blog on my website but it was time. I spent a sleepless night with Steven King (not literally) reading his book On Writing. Great book by the way. He made me think so it inspired another blog post. This topic is How Important are The Basic Rules of Grammar?
Stop by and have a look and feel free to comment.

As this will be my last post before Christmas, I wanted to share with you the latest, really lovely review that my humble little book, Tilly's Tale has received. Martha Cheves is a reviewer with a difference. All the book reviews she carries out are accompanied by a delicious recipe that goes hand in hand with the book. In this case she has provided a WONDERFUL recipe for DOG TREATS. Whoopee. I'm sure she won't mind me sharing her lovely recipe and her review with everyone, so without… Continue

I'm happy to say that Tilly's Tale has picked up another 5 star review at Amazon.com. this follows hot on the heels of the previous two reviews received this week. The 'wag-o-meter' on Tilly's tail is almost off the scale. It just won't stop wagging! Tilly also 'signed' a couple of books at the dog training academy yesterday. She's getting rather good at it...lol
Here's the latest:

I'm very pleased to announce that in October I joined the ranks of Ellora's Cave authors
. Not only did I luck out in that respect, I managed to get the best editor in the world (in my humble opinion). Corporeal, my first Quickie came out right before Halloween. So, I got busy with a werewolf book that was taking up room in my head and now I am damn near giddy to… Continue

So, so, so much thanks… Continue
