About Joe Bob Newman

I have been writing mystery and fiction books since 1982. I have never considered having any published until now. My career has been in writing technical documents for the defense industry. By profession I am a mechanical engineer, P.E. I have six grand children.. During the summer months, I spend a lot of time in the mountains of New Mexico. Watching wildlife and observing the ecology. i also enjoy riding my 4-wheeler. I built a cabin by myself, just above a stream filled with trout, perhaps i should say am building, I have been working on it for twenty years and it is still not finished, but it is livable, it has electricity, running water and a septic system. With that, I am happy to live there in the summer months and for a week or two in the winter, but I have found that I am not much of a "snow" person.
I do hope you read and enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed writing them! Thanks for visiting my page.

Review by: Colin Hay on Nov. 28, 2012 :
The Craft
I found this story a little confusing - the actions and reasoning in the story are those you would expect from a child, yet the characters are mostly aged adults. Some of the themes (or interplay) are somewhat adult-ish , which sort of implies this is not a book for young teenagers. I think most High School students could tell you that you don't point a spaceship at the moon (or mars) and go for it - you aim for where it will be after the elapsed time to get there (and that is simplified).
It is not the sort of story you feel comfortable reading as there are so many points that are unrealistic (a child's fantasy, or someone how has never grown up). I think the overall idea is cool, just the meat doesn't hold together.
