Book Review: Just a Geek by Wil Wheaton

Let’s start this review off on the right foot… I was a huge fan of Star Trek the Next Generation (a.k.a. STSG). I named my first cat Spot after Data’s ginger tabby. But I really tried to approach this review with an open and partial mind.

Ten Questions with Ross Klavan

Ross Klavan is the person you always wanted to be. At least I feel this way. His novel, “Shmuck”, was published in 2014 and he recently finished the screenplay for “The Colony” based on the book by John Bowers.

Ten Questions with Charles Salzberg

Charles Salzberg is a gifted writer and, like his co-conspirators for the novel, “Triple Shot”, hails from New York City (my home town).  I was excited to be offered their book in exchange for an honest review, and can’t be more happy to promote this Ten Questions post. Don’t be fooled. This writer has a list of books and teaches for New York Writers Workshop. If you want to live vicariously through this man’s experiences, check out his books.

Ten Questions with Tim O’Mara

Tim O’Mara isn’t a newbie to writing. He’s the author of the Raymond Donne Mysteries, which I look forward to reading and reviewing very, very soon. In the book “Triple Shot”, Mr. O’Mara balances his narrator’s smuggling and selling marijuana with the same issues with plain old cigarettes. But do illegal automatic weapons count?
