about me

Viene La Tormenta was published in 1989 as a ten-thousand word short story w/two original paintings as illustrations in the international climbing magazine Rock & Ice., issue #35.

Viene La Tormenta is an exploration of perceived value.

If you comment on VLT, thank you. I appreciate the time and effort it takes.

A complete VLT would be illustrated with sixteen photographs and six paintings by the author.

The novel, Viene La Tormenta, is protected by Registration Number TXu 1-733-553 of the United States Copyright Office, effective April 1, 2010. All rights are reserved.

Viene La Tormenta, published as "Comes the Storm", is available as a Kindle book through Amazon, or as a print edition at Xaipros.com

'49. Makes me sixty+. Sort of pleased and amazed I'm still here. An early product of SoCal culture. Chased fun, not profit. You make your choices, accept the trade-offs, right? Self-taught. Worked hard. Carpenter, house painter, artist, husband, parent. Modern world at odds with inner sense of direction. Can the two be reconciled? Working at it.

Don't feel afraid of anything.
Through life just freely roam.
The world belongs to all of us -
So make yourself at home.


Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
For life is but a dream . . .

Read to Ch. 13. I really like the reason Edgar decided to graduate from birds to humans. It's a dark place you got that from! And so plausible a way for a V to rationalize the taking of human life . . . Corky needs the mirror! The diary entries are good. A very different voice. And, I just... view book

Read to ch. 6. Good work! It's great that you're branching out into imaginative fiction. Your style lends itself to horror that creeps slowly under the skin and then you've got these little bugs making tunnels in your flesh and you can't get rid of them until you read the whole book. The approach re... view book

What a cast of characters! Lost Souls, indeed! This reads a bit like a cross between The Postman Always Rings Twice and Body Heat. A great, good beginning to a noir crime of passion type tale where everyone has ulterior motives. I really feel for Claudia, and totally understand her transformation fr... view book
