i have many favorite books; look at my authors list for an idea on that;
i will read just about anything; the thing i am not much interested in is politics, however; that's a bit boring for my reader's tastebuds, on the dry side, and makes me yearn for a cool glass of water.
BLAZE by Richard Bachman/Stephen King.
i recommend this book highly.
Stephen King is donating all proceeds from this book's sales to the Haven Foundation and this is a very goodcharity for down on the luck artists who have suffered from illness or other life-setbacks. Check it out at
a veranda on a breezy summer day, with a tall glass of iced tea , mint-sprigged and lemon wedged, a thick book in my lap and no worries pending too heavy to not be ignored.
hey i have a specific memory when i say that...the book was Stephen King's IT. Was well entertained, what can I say, he is the King of Horror, after all;the man who knows how to give his readers a thrill, a laugh, and the pukes all in one sitting. Love his stuff.
a novel, the first of 9 in the series which i plan as 3 sets of trilogies:
Jeopardy McNaill: the Chair of Release and Remembrance.
also have a YA book about junior ghost hunters
and a werewolf trilogy
as well as other things, poem collections, short story collections, other novels
