Here's a line in the first episode:

"You know what? My wife watches Dr. Phil…
and I’m going to tell you right now,

not even Dr. Phil can fix this.”

   The blog has been on hiatus for the past year do to some distractions. As many of you know, one of the distractions was a stroke that I had last March 2022. Recovery and rehab has been going good and have been getting back on track with projects.

One of the projects is we just released two audio books. One is the audio book of “Adventureswith Pop Pop at Grants Farm.” The other one is the children's book my wife Debbie published “Petunia Prima Ballerina.” The links below to the audio books have some sort of promotional discounts for subscribers to audible.

More to come and more projects are in the works.

Thanks for reading and subscribing.

Children's Books During COVID-19

 "Time To Develop More Material" 

Marketing and selling books, including Children’s Books, during the COVID social distancing period has been difficult, and from comments I’ve heard from Authors the consensus is that they agree. While the ability to sell books may be stifled, there has also been opportunity to develop material for future books. In our case COVID-19 evolved into practicing social distancing, and by our case, I’m talking about myself and the Grandmen. Grandmen is what I call my two grandsons, and is also the base for the “Adventures with Pop Pop” children’s book series I recently started. The first book was “Grandman DeanGoes Big Shopping” and there is also a companion Coloring Book that goes with it.

During COVID I would take the Grandmen on Adventures to various county and state parks, away from everyone, and take them on walks. This experience accomplished several things, one of course was Social Distancing, while also providing the boys outdoor activities searching for Dinosaurs, Fossils, and whatever we could find.  The end result relating to books is the adventures provided material for future books.

In the meantime, our second book in nearing completion and is about Grandman Dean’s Preschool Adventures, and this is where Little Brother Grandman Levi will be introduced.

We invite you to follow us on our social media sites and share with you friends and family.

My Books Hidden Messages

When it comes to movies and television series, the below list all have at least one thing in common, that being some sort of Plot Twist or something that was a surprise and not expected. Their genres may not be the same, however the writers presented a story that provided entertainment coupled with an unexpected answer or event within the stories that in some manner gave us a sense of closure, justice, revenge, or just a sense of relief for one of the characters.

In my books “Forgotten Soldiers” and “Till the Cows Come Home,” plus book projects in progress, my intent is to provide similar plot twist, surprise, and unexpected outcomes that provide the reader with a sort of satisfaction with the stories ending. Another intent is to insert in a subtle manner identifying a hidden message that draws attention to an injustice within our society, injustices that
anger us and should not be ignored.

My intention is to entertain while drawing attention to either issues or events we should not forget, and social justice issues that should not be ignored due to political and social correctness.

I invite you to follow my Website, Facebook, Twitter, Google, and my Amazon Page and watch for future project releases.

American Psycho, Atonement, Devil, Dexter, Ex-Machina, Gone Baby Gone, Gone Girl, Last House on the Left (2009), Little Children, Mystic River, Planet of the Apes (Original), Psycho, Shawshank Redemption, Room, Sixth Sense, Sleepers, Split, Spotlight, The Departed, The Others, The Prestige, The Punisher, Usual Suspects, Westworld (Series), Without a Trace (movie)

Till The Cows Come Home Release October 26

Just in time for Halloween

Just another Happy Halloween Short Story, without the ghouls or goblins but disturbing to say the least.
The first installment in the Farmerville Series begins with Ron Farmer, a four-year veteran of the rural Hobbs County Sheriff’s Department. Ron had a rather normal life without much excitement, a sharp contrast from when he was a Green Beret deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The traditional Halloween festivities are no match for what was set in motion when Ron made a traffic on the Friday of Halloween eve. No ghouls or goblins in this story, but the events that transpire involving two escaped convicts, a family of four, two migrant workers, Ron and his daughter Laura, are far more disturbing, sinister, terrifying, and real, than any ghouls and goblins story.

Release Date October 26

eBook available for Pre-Order

Paperback also available
