Interview over at Sherry Ramsey’s Site

My short story Watcher Ghost is in a bundle called Short Flights (of the Imagination).  You can find more details at this link about the bundle.  Story bundles like this are pretty cool because you can buy one book and get a bunch of different writers.  I bought one last year and found a series that I had to buy all the books for because it was so good.  So it’s a great way to find new books to read.

Sherry’s got up an interview with me on her site.  It was fun to do, so drop by and take a look.

Spotlight on 5 Selected Links About Books

Reading isn’t just the books, but sometimes the history of them, the libraries, or even how the world used them.  And sometimes it’s just wandering through the aisles looking at all of them and not knowing where to start.

25 Interesting Facts About Libraries Did you know that there are libraries  where you can check out a storyteller?  Might have to steal that for a story.

Coalesce . . . A Bookstore & More.  This is a shout-out to a bookstore in Morro Bay, CA.  When my family visited my grandparents, I always ended up in this little bookstore, just a few blocks from the harbor.  Despite all the changes in the industry, the bookstore is still there.

Book Castle/Movie World: This bookstore in Burbank does not appear to have a website.  It’s a place I would check out frequently because I could find books and scripts and photos.  Just an awesome place to explore.

First Night

Dog tags resting against a military uniform
Arriving the first time in-country is a profound experience for every soldier. We’re leaping into it blind and we don’t know what we’re going to get.

Fear is something Private Carolyn Mendez can’t admit to. Yet, as she arrives in Saudi Arabia, for Desert Storm, deploying to war, it’s all she can think about. All she has is herself, and even that is scary.

Rogue God

Cover for Rogue God, showing a tiki face on a surfboard.
NOVEL: This, believe it or not, originated from fan fiction.  I never much liked other people’s characters; the ones I created kept taking over, so I turned it into a story.

Anton Keymas is part of a magical Special Forces, the Vai, and blessed by a party goddess. His mission? Hunt monsters that no one believes in any more and try not to get killed.

But this new monster has killed two soldiers. Now that it’s gotten a taste of human flesh, it will be back for more.

Keymas has little time to stop a monster that is intelligent and cunning. He may have to do the one thing he has refused to do, and even that has a cost, especially when gods get involved.

Women at War: Stories & Poems

This is a collection of stories and poems reflecting my military experience.  There are poems written during Desert Storm.

Desert Storm war veteran Linda Maye Adams shows the diversity of what war is like for the women who deploy in this collection of short stories and poetry. The stories run from “First Night,” and “Between Black and White,” because war seldom ends when the war does.

The poems include:

  • A Woman Goes to War
  • Once Upon a Time
  • Only Questions
  • Little One
  • The Lonely Sounds of War
  • No Safe Places
  • Just Like Me
  • That Wish

Blink of a Moment

Back of man with digital code on his skin
This was for an anthology call and provided the opening sentence.  Everyone was going to do first person or dialogue, so I wanted to be different and started with a tweet.

The world stops for Trey Howard, like a camera rewinding and then starting up again.  All he wants to is hide in his job as a janitor and pretend like he doesn’t exist, like can’t make the world blink.  Then the government finds him,  men who are not affected when the world blinks, and they want to talk to him…

The Remembering Warriors Bundle

Remembering Warriors cover
Raise money for veteran charities and get good fiction and non-fiction. This book features my memoir Soldier, Storyteller.


One hundred years ago, in 1918, the Great War ended after four terrible years. Never had the world seen such a conflict. All touched by its scythe hoped we would never be thusly reaped again. Their hopes were but desperate dreams. Since that first armistice, there have been many more battles, and thousands have given their lives or their health to preserve freedom and escape from tyranny.

A hundred years after the first armistice we still remember and honour those brave souls. But still the soldiers fall, for the War to End all Wars did not.

10% of the royalties from the Remembering Warriors bundle will go to the Royal British Legion plus another 10% to Help for Heroes, two charities that support wounded and ex-service personnel and their families, in commemoration of the World War I centenary.

Mystery Stories

I grew up reading Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, and Kim Aldrich. I could never get enough of girls having adventures with something exciting like solving mysteries.   Links to blurbs are still being updated.

Beach view of Morro Rock
When I was driving home, a white dog was standing up on his hind legs, feet propped up on a fence, looking like he was chatting with the neighbors. So I had to use him in a story.
