I'm writing science fiction. I'm looking for intelligent discussions about science fiction. I want to be able to tell you when I have a new book out. Otherwise, I am very busy working on a series that will be four books, maybe five.

Check out my new web site!

I’ve wanted to create a website for some time and, with the help of WordPress, it just went live. It features my blog, Rainforest Writer, where I usually post twice a week. Some posts will deal with our funny, fascinating and frustrating language, but I also like to talk about books and the writing world, as well as indulge in an occasional rant, not necessarily politically correct. Here is the web address:

I hope you will subscribe to the blog. Click on the "Follow" button at the top of the righthand column, underneath the header photo of Chesterman Beach near Tofino. Enter your email address in the form provided. The site will automatically send you an email to notify you when there's a new post.

Other than the blog, the site has my bio (click on my photo top left) and the covers of all my published books. Click on a cover and it will take you to a description and the details about that book.

Hey, see you on the web!

go belly up
This means being dead, broke, hopelessly failed or otherwise “done,” and is based on the idea of a dead animal found lying on its back, with its belly facing up, or a fish floating to the surface belly up when it dies. The phrase is used to describe almost ...

venturing into space
A friend replied to last week’s post, where I was puzzling over whether my book Green Blood Rising belongs in the science fiction category. She reminded me of its similarity to John Wyndham’s The Day of the Triffids , and said that his book has always been ...
