My middle grade novella, Finder Keyper, is only 99c – on a variety of digital platforms. Fun for kids and adults.

When David, Joanna and Ricky see the strange van arrive in town, they can’t help being curious.  They meet a tall man named Mr. Keyper, the owner of Finder Keyper’s Curiosities & Collectibles.
But, the kid’s excitement turns to terror when Ricky goes missing–after he sneaks back into the store without telling his fiends. David and Joanna soon find themselves in a fight for their lives when they become trapped in the store while looking for Ricky. It seems Mr. Keyper is not what he appears to be.
Can they out run the dreaded Bone-Cruncher, find their friend and escape Mr. Keyper’s sinister and deadly plan?

The King of Horror was born on this day–in 1947.

His importance to the world of literature–especially Horror–cannot be overstated. He truly is the “King”.

One of the most important books (especially in Fantasy literature) was published on this day in 1937.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien popularized modern Fantasy and is still loved by fans to this day.

Gene Wilder (1933-2016)

Wow. Really unhappy with 2016–where so many of iconic figures have died.

Now, we have lost Gene Wilder.

Those who remember him probably have a particular place in their heart for him. For some, it might be as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein in Young Frankenstein. Others likely laughed at his portrayal of Jim, The Waco Kid in Blazing Saddles. Still others will remember him co-starring with Richard Pryor in 4 movies–including Stir Crazy.

But, for me, it was his portrayal as the brilliantly lunatic chocolatier in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. It has been one of my favorite films since childhood–and still makes me smile when I watch it now.

His genius will be missed.

So loved this show.
It’s like a mash-up of Stand By Me/Alien/Super 8.
or
Stephen King meets Steven Spielberg by way of Guillermo Del Toro.
This is the kind of story I loved to read when I was a kid–and the kind of story I want to write, especially for kids. Everyone should watch this.
