Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a well-traveled, multi-lingualish, part-time stay at home dad. Grew up in the 70's & 80's between Berkeley, CA and rural OK - how's that for a cross-cultural experience?

Have many degrees under my belt, though most are fairly useless.

Currently in Seattle, plugging away on my keyboard between drops of rain & drippings of coffee.

Written two novels, one self published, the other... not.

Free for the next couple of days: my book

Posted on December 7, 2015 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

My job went away a few months back and am working towards finding another one. Still it’s the season of giving, so I wanted to share something; all I have is this little kinda-corny ebook I published on amazon, so I thought “Hell, I can give it away - someone might enjoy it...” Here ya go - free for the next few days, across multiple countries.



My ebook, Jasmine Cowl & the Salagi Talking Stick, is on sale - only Only 99¢

Just a little FYI/ heads up. I'm hoping to get enough sales that my wife will be ok with me actually writing a sequel...

The blurb:

Jasmine Cowl is pissed. Fifteen years ago, the young African American woman and a group of her friends had managed to save the world. Now she's stuck in a boring, mundane life, in spite of the fact that she works for the CIA... not that CIA, the other one. Saddled with a family, a job, and the PTA, she thinks she's found a new…

I wrote a book. I started it six years ago and just self-published it. Not a big deal, it happens all the time, I know. I wrote it because at the time i started, I wasn't seeing much diversity in the realm of sci-fi/speculative/fantasy etc outside of Butler (whose work I find fantastic).

I decided to try and write something, ostensibly for my daughter so she would know there were books out there for people who look like her. The book is not a kids book - not at all - there's…

Jason - I am in Seattle as well. Look forward to hearing more about you and from you. 

Consider visiting my Tuesday Writers Meetup. Details can be found in the events section of the website. The virtual meetup allows for vigorous conversation about writing. It is also acceptable to have bouts of silence while working on story and character points in the company of others

Being creative or innovative is the easy part. The challenge that tends to overwhelm folks of African descent is the one of commerce. Controlling and profiting from the financial, administrative and distribution of those amazing good & services tends to lag behind.  Leaving those with better expertise in these areas to dog it out, exploit and profit. Not to mention over-control.

This is why breaking the "Black On Black" boycott of legal honest Black owned operations in a must!  Once one controls masses of money then comes the control of everything else. 

Where as Black On Black Money will overcome everything negative!

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
