It’s been a hectic month between cover reveals, editing, the World’s Best Story competition and NanoWrimo. Somehow, some amazing things have still come together. One of these “things” is the cover to World On Fire, releasing in February 2016.
World on Fire is a futuristic, young adult novel.
2043: In a world knocked off grid by massive solar flares and Earth’s thinning atmosphere, people on the ground are forced underground in a desperate fight for life.
I was over the moon delighted for my book, Life in a Nutshell, to receive a review from a man of James Kahn’s caliber. If you’re a fan of Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, Goonies, Melrose Place or Poltergeist, then you’re a fan of James. Right now, I’m fan girling him hard!
“Life in a Nutshell” is “Bridget Jones” meets “Bright Lights, Big City.” It starts breathless and keeps you running to the finish. Funny, sexy and smart – this is your next must-read romance novel.”
– James Kahn, writer-producer, Melrose Place

Seldom do I read a book of such literary brilliance that I can see the book play out like a movie on the big screen. The Hollow Man, written by Paul Hollis is just such a book.
With a deft intertwining of fact and fiction, this action thriller tells the story of a young field analyst from the U.S. who’s assigned to study emerging terror tactics and keep a watchful eye over the prime minister of Spain. A deadly explosion kills the primeminister and a wild chase ensues as the analyst attempts to uncover the master mind behind the assassination.
“The buildings were battered and bruised, the rupture
in the street was still bleeding, and thick dust had buried the dead.”
Hollis brings the world of war torn Europe to life in intricate and believable detail. The analyst, with the assistance of his lover, who is also an British agent race against time to thwart what they believe to b
e more than just an assassination attempt.Hollis is a master storyteller with a keen eye for detail. His professionalism is demonstrated in this work by the expert editing, complex characters and a very well managed plot. It was a pleasure to read such a well developed literary work.You can take a sneek peek into this masterpiece by clicking here: The Hollow Man
One of my favorite quotes from Steve Jobs: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else´s life.”
Apparently Mr. Jobs has never had to contend with the people that exist inside of my head. By virtue of my writing I AM living someone else’s life. A life that couldn’t have been given birth to without first gestating inside my brain. In my mental womb a small seed takes root, suckles upon gray matter and grows into it’s own existence.
As I spend hours and days hammering away on my keyboard I live another life, I see life through a different lens and I experience my existence via an altered reality.
