Pen Names are useful for separating the part of me that needs the day job and a paycheck from the naughty fun of writing fiction. Between my day job, and dyslexia writing has been a challenge but you cannot keep a good story down. I hope you enjoy the stories. If you do, tell everyone, if you don't, tell me. In honor of some of my books becoming banned in parts of the world, look for discounted prices and print copies including the eBook. Pass the word on forbidden fruit.
Many things I write are a result of "no good deed goes unpunished." It is often cheap therapy for resisting telling someone what I really think of them. If it seems my characters sometimes are a little harsh on their enemies, maybe I am just venting in a socially acceptable manner, or my gaming dice were just mean that day.
I am an eclectic scientist teacher/writer (who is maintains all rights reserved for copyright) which might explain why I make use of an over-the-top Pen Name. Also, a Pen Name gives the freedom to let the sometimes-disturbing aspects of a character or story go which every way (or the random dice roll) takes it.
The author has; too little hair on top rapidly heading to my toes, too much waistline in the middle. Enough experience to get into trouble in things ranging from jewelry and leaded glass window making, military, law and enforcement thereof, business and some finance (don't ask me how to make money in the markets if I was successful at it I wouldn't be worried about a pen name to keep my day job as a science teacher) and an endless curiously about all things science including things that are not studied but should have a good hard look.
Yes, global warming causing climate shift is real so get over it and do something useful to help.
No, I don't know if UFO's are real or not, but maybe we should support efforts of MUFON or some other legitimate scientific research even if that come back they are not real, but what if they are, and then what are we going to do?
Yes, I am a serious Science Fiction Geek and do not wear Star Trek TOS Red Shirts just in case, and it makes the neighbors nervous.
Yes, Star Wars and Battle Star Galactica rock and I will not take sides as to which of these shows or universes are better.
Yes, I want a TARDIS, but who doesn’t
My good friend Jack Angry, who has Boobs, Bunz & Bawdiness vol 1 on video as well as a going list of titles, and I are trying to do something to help CThreeFoundation.org get the word out about a “cure” or to be more precise the addition of the treatment of the pharmacological and behavioristic component of alcoholism. The specifics of which you can view on Claudia Christian’s ‘one little pill’ documentary. Please also see Boobs, Bunz & Bawdiness vol 1, which was on Amazon Prime for free, and as soon as I find where they hid it I will give directions. The Angry Brothers now have a ROKU channel so look there for their work.
My print books are on the free eBook if you buy a paper copy program on Amazon, so you can enjoy and lend them without losing your expensive copy. Not that I am not grateful to smashwords.com, who distributes to many providers, and allows me to give out reviewers copies. I must say the I have enjoyed the support of Barnes & Noble, Apple Books, as well as others. So whatever retailer is giving you great service, please feel free to find me there. I must say the smashwords.com and https://my.findawayvoices.com havd been very supportive and helpful. If you are new author, or heading into audio books, these are great resources, who are FREE and polite.
Also, you can read the books for fun, enjoyment, and hidden in my stories actual science facts, as well as a mystery or two when I can. I always try to keep the elements of a good story, A little religion, a royal figure, a little sex (sometimes a lot), and a mystery. This makes the shortest story that meets these requirements to be, "Good God, the Queen is pregnant, whose's responsible?"
Feel free to tell all your friends, and acquaintances, as asking you to tell your enemies is a bit much.
If you have not signed up for the smiles program with Amazon, the CThreeFoundation.org is one of the charitable groups that can get a donation every time you shop. Once again a chance to do a good deed with other people's money.
If you are not too offended, feel free to contact me connect to the author page, contact info or you can try firstname.lastname@example.org. Sorry if I am slow to get back to you as I still need my day job. I have a Facebook account too, so try me there. Hopefully, I will make enough of a refund of expenditures to buy more coffee so I can write more stories to help out worthy causes. I do make every effort to keep the eBook price at a level of recovery of expenses and less a cup of designer coffee at [insert name of your favorite place here] chain or restaurant. I also like good tea, too though the purist out there will not like the amount of honey or whatever sweetener I find that day. If you like I am sure that the people at CThreeFoundation will also just take a cash donation too.
A Special Challenge for you
Mentally please record the ‘names’ or whatever you use to identify the people I am about to ask about. List all the people you know of that have or had an Alcohol issue. I have never met anyone who did not have, someone that they knew, or are related to, who doesn’t have a ‘drinking’ problem.
Now do something about it, and point them towards CThreeFoudation.org, before you regret not having tried. My book the Hospice Chaplain's Confessions was written to try to bring some interest in this topic, as well as entertain. The various Leaked books series also have some story line with the Sinclair method, so check them out, I did make them cheap for a reason. One of them might help the "penny drop" for someone to get help. Most authors do not make a lot of money on writing, so I might as well try to help the world be a little better.
Your Second challenge
If you know of anyone with PTSD, or another mental issue, which any human can get from having a traumatic event happen on a bad day.
Think of them here.
Now look up the latest treatment options and see if you can be supportive. You and I are just one unfortunate experience away. This doesn’t happen to the other ‘guy’. It can and does happen to all of us at some point.
Dream Stealer's: Nocnista, was written to remind us not to forget, and remember we are all on bad day from needing some compassion and understanding.
A Special Thank you
If you can read this? Thank a teacher, parent, grandparent, or whoever taught you to read. For reading is the ability to gain knowledge and knowledge is power. Don’t live in darkness, believing what you are told. Read and learn the truth about things that are claimed to be in controversy. Public schools, Public TV, Public Radio, and libraries are the first and best defense against the darkness of ignorance and bigotry. Long live Big Bird and all the other characters from children’s educational shows that start the path to learning as a fun and fulfilling experience. When someone makes a claim, ask for the evidence, and examine the reasoning.
If you are reading this in a country where you are free from unreasonable persecution and the right to vote, thank a veteran.
For those who would like to provide reviews, I would love the feedback, and if you are in a situation were you need a reviews copy for free let me know, as we all have been in that place.
Special thanks to mnay people, is called needed. My wife, father, and assorted cousins and such, for putting up with being beta readers, or my just paying too much attention to the keyboard. Les, Lane, Carl, Todd, and others also deservce honorable mentions. As I get time to flesh out this page, I am sure I will have more thanks and tributes coming. There are many in the books, but give me time.
Thank you all for your support, and to all the readers, thank you.
