Biography

I am a retired Science teacher and a father and a grandfather.

My favorite author is Jack Vance.

I really like birds, especially corvids and raptors.

I believe animals communicate in ways we have not been able to understand, yet.

Climate change? It's real and the Earth will be fine, and we will find a solution in the nick of time as we always do.

Smashwords book reviews by Alex Focus

  • Skeleton Trees on July 06, 2013

    A very good read. It drags you into an misty and mysterious atmosphere where anything is possible. It then wrings you out and leaves you wanting for more. Another fine piece of work from AM Cullens, one of Australia's new and talented authors. Do yourself a favour and enjoy it now.
  • A Fairy Stole My Baby on July 21, 2013

    Not for children or the faint hearted! A true to life story of the battle to rescue kidnapped children from the evil Hook...some blood is going to be spilt - and is! Would make a great movie! great story!
  • (Insert Appropriate Name for a Slightly Humourous Alien Story Here) Part 1 on Aug. 01, 2013

    A quirky and funny story, entertaining and fast moving. To the superficial reader it may have echoes of Hitchhicker's, but the discerning reader will go beyond that similarity.
  • Searching for the Tree of Life on Oct. 02, 2015

    Adelise Cullens' descriptions of the land that she has created are vivid and tantalizing. They will remain in your mind long after you have finished enjoying the second Book in the Silent Lady series - Searching for the Tree of Life. Back are Captain Ellie and her first mate and lover, Raven. Once gain they are pitted against a formidable and evil antagonist, who threatens to destroy all they love. Things get really complicated when the Kraken 'wakes' and you are in for a fast paced struggle between good and evil, between light and darkness. The book is well written with very good character development. Cullens' skill in depicting each detail of the story is remarkable. I recommend "Searching for the Tree of Life" for especially those readers who are not faint of heart.
