AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT JOE

“I've loved science fiction and fantasy from the time I learned to read. My hobbies, besides writing, are traveling, adventure game playing and do-it-yourself projects. Before I retired, I was a technical writer working for a major computer manufacturer.

I believe my love of reading stems from my parents and grandparents, who were all avid readers. As a child, one of my favorite things was hanging out at the library or browsing in flea markets for books I could afford. I also liked mathematics and science, especially astronomy. When I was twelve or so, I discovered the pulp magazines. They had garish covers and were printed on blotting paper, but the stories inside were marvelous. In these magazines, I learned to love such writers as Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Robert Silverberg and so many others.

I married a girl who went to the same high school as I did, and we've been married over fifty years now. We have four wonderful girls, ten grandchildren (who are now adults ) and one spunky nine-year-old great-granddaughter. In 1993, I retired. That's when my fiction writing career really started.

Three series of paranormal fantasy novels of mine, called The Morgaine Chronicles, Raven Lenore, Psychic Investigator, and my humorous fantasy saga The Books of Retslu have been published as ebooks by Futures-Past Editions. Futures-Past has also published all my novels including, The Isaac Project, For Love of Kumiko, Pawns of Tomorrow, Star Tower, Out of Time, Takeover, The Artifact, Pawns of Tomorrow, The Laws of Magic, Castle Darkest Night and Dinner with Dracula. All are available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as other online ebook sellers.”

EXCERPT OF CHRONICLES OF MORGAINE
Michael stood not six inches away, and I became lost in those wonderful, terrible eyes of his. My heart beat wildly, and I gulped. At that moment I would have done anything – absolutely anything, regardless of how outrageous – that he asked. For one instance I was his absolute slave only waiting for his command.

Thank God, it was a simple one. "Please stay a while, Melody. Have a brandy with me.”

We conversed about various subjects as we slowly sipped our drinks. When I finished, I set the glass down with some finality. "I really must go now. Work tomorrow." The last drink made me feel strange after the others we had throughout the evening, not tipsy or anything, just strange. I certainly did not want to get high at this point. "Could you call a cab, please?”

"Parting is such sweet sorrow," he whispered. His tone was only slightly mocking. If those had not been the words to a corny old song, I believe he meant them literally.

In the cab, my thoughts were in a whirling disarray. Was I falling in love? C'mon, I told myself, a grown woman does not fall in love after seeing a man twice. But I was lying to myself, and knew I was lying. What was it about him? His charm? His rugged good looks? Something. Maybe his eyes. Whenever I thought of him, they were the first thing I recalled. There was a hypnotic quality about them. But there was something else. He mentioned reincarnation. Was that it? Were we lovers in some past life? I shook my head to clear it. The thing was, when he had planted that light kiss on my lips, it was as though an electric shock had jolted my heart.

  3. Married over 50 years now?! That's incredible. It's 25 years for me this year. How do we keep the magic alive for another 25? Any tips?

    SO, Morgaine, the anti-heroine...is she pattered in any way after Morgan le Fay or Morgana from the Arthurian legends? The name is very evocative of the same.
