The Orphanage of Abandoned Teenagers looks great!

I got the proof copy of my latest book
The Orphanage of Abandoned Teenagers.
It looks beautiful! Hope you will get a
chance to read it and pass it on to others.
You can order it from


I watched a crazed Columbia serial called
The Monster and the Ape (1945). I'm so
inspired by those clunky old robots that I've
been writing a new novel featuring one.
I don't want to give away too much yet, but
it also features a one-legged magician and
a vampire who teaches ragtime piano lessons.
The robot in this movie does a lot of sitting,
walking back and forth, or pushing a wheelbarrow.
There's also a bad-minded gang who keep stealing
the gorilla from the zoo to do their evil work.
I didn't know you could borrow zoo animals.
Must have been okay in the 1940s.

tv time

I've been enjoying the British TV show,
Two Fat Ladies. I'm sure that Roald Dahl
would have been a fan of this program.

movie time

 I watched the old Cat People movie (1942) again
because I had "nothing else to do....nothing else to do"
