Eat too much? Have too much of a good time? Don't panic.
We took a mini-vacation to Jerome, Arizona the last four days in celebration of yet another of my mother's 21st Birthdays. We had an incredible time, especially our stay at the Surgeon's House Bed and Breakfast. You know you'...

Had a great day of fishing on the Lower Provo. Nine brown trout and one rainbow.
Accidental selfie. You can't live dangerously without a little fishing. If you're a follower of this blog, then you'll remember when I posted the blog about fishing when I was in Afghanistan called When I Used to Be a Fisher...

Thanks to great author William C. Dietz for a terrific cover blurb.
As a young man, I remember leaning against the inside of  the TC turret of my armored personnel carrier and reading a new book called Legion of the Damned by this author named William C. Dietz. I really should have been watch...

Yes, I'm involved in this. My novel will hit later this Spring to add to the glorious nastiness we call Apocalypse Weird.

It's pretty awesome when an Iron Chef comments on one of your recipes. It's even awesomer when the main ingredient is Chupacabra.
Yes, this is a story about my recipe for Chupacabra-Stuffed Clams and Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. This recipe is a real thing. At least it is if you can find some chupacabras or 'cabras as we in the know call them.  S...

"I have a great love of good fiction, regardless of genre, whether it's marketed towards younger readers or adults. Ghost Heart falls squarely into this category, and I'm giving you notice that this is a story that transcends into the realm of myth. It's the type of tale that people like you and me have been sharing since the beginning of time, through our artwork, through the oral tradition, and through the written word. This is a classic take on both the coming of age tale, and the hero's journey. Anyone that feels a little leery about picking this up, since you're an adult, and this has a YA label on it, stop. Really, please stop...The writing flows along like a river, the characters are engaging, and the adventure itself is absolutely mighty..."
