  1. I have just read your ebook IMAGINARY FRIENDS & I am totally blown away. As a writer myself, I am totally humbled! I will be posting a review as soon as I finish writing it. Now I want to read ALL your books. You have just become one of my very favorite writers. I agree this would be a fantabulous movie- have you tried DISNEY??
    Keep writing, bub. You have me hooked!

    It could be a great cartoon series, or a TV show, or a comix strip. For publicity use You-Tube.

      Hey Jose!

      Thanks for the vote of confidence! If I ever strike it rich, I might commission somebody to do graphic novel versions. And if I strike it REALLY rich, I would just fund the movie shoots myself. But first I have to strike it really rich. Therein lies the problem. 🙂

      But until then, enjoy the text stories!

      Hey Rich!

      Wow – that’s really cool – you actually grew UP with a ninja! 🙂 Please forgive any dramatic licenses on my part with the training. I try to stick as close as I can to what I learned, but sometimes I have to fill in the gaps or improvise…

      Thanks so much for taking a chance and picking up VAMPIRES. I definitely write the stories for all ages – I mean, I basically write them for ME at my age, and for the 10-year-old version of me who snuck into the grocery store to read Stephen King’s novels because they weren’t allowed at home. So, yep, ALL ages. In fact, the vast majority of my fans are ages 20-60, so you’re in good company. I think my readers in the 8-14 demographic probably make up less than 10% of my overall fan base.

      Thanks for all the kind words – I’m so glad you’re enjoying my books! And thanks for writing in!
