Flashback to 1918…

07 November 2021 – Let's walk back in time today to the 11th of November 1918. A young man of eighteen celebrates. He has lived through months of brutal combat and now he’s ready to go home. Faro Galati was my grandfather and he fought with the Italian Army in World War One. The experience was the impetus for him and his family to immigrate to North America where he believed they could live without the shadow of war falling on them. With Remembrance Day approaching, I would like to honour my grandfather and the men and women of all nations who courageously fought for their countries.

Musings…

22 Oct 2021 – It’s been a hectic couple of weeks as I get ready to deliver my new baby, except I’ve been carrying it for over ten months now. Yup, that’s right, the final edit is done and my second novel is now ready for lift off. Drum roll please: I’d like to introduce you to Descent into Darkness, the second book in The Chronicles of Deneb series. I’m bringing in a couple of new characters and sending the gang off on some new and exciting adventures. But then again, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of the book so I’ll leave you to unravel the plot. One of the most exciting things for me was to design a new planet. I searched around the globe to check out some pretty cool sites to use in my work since this time we’re going to be taking a side trip to a water world.

I also had to read up on botany and you’ll see why. Although, to be honest, I’ve got a long history with plants. Way back when I was eight years old, my grandmother gave me some canna lily rhizomes. At the time, my father was in the Army and we lived in this awful rowhouse for military families. I took those gnarled roots and my dad watched as I planted them in the barren dirt out front. Our home was the only one on the block that year with brilliant red flowers towering over our postage stamp front yard. Since then, I’ve been experimenting with seeds and cuttings and plants, trying to grow things to eat and beautify the environment. Just like one of the Mayflower gang, who finds themself thrust into a new and very strange career pattern. Whether on our fascinating planet or across the cosmos in worlds only bound by our imaginations, let’s take the time to revel in the miracle of nature!

Descent into Darkness: The Chronicles of Deneb Book 2 can be purchased on Amazon, Kobo, or Barnes and Noble.
