Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time, reading and writing reviews. I also spend a good portion of my day playing with my grandchildren and my Australian Shepherd, Beau.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do remember it. I made a comic book character in school and I passed it around for my classmates to read. My problem, I didn't want him to be infallible and I definitely did not want him to get killed. I struggled with cliches.

  • Alchemist Gift on April 15, 2016

    Alchemist Gift was a book unlike others. The first unusual thing about it was that the main character was not an alchemist. Roland Hughes was a modern day man, a career college student that relied heavily on his girlfriend, Liz Parker, for financial support. He was unhappy with the way things were going and could feel that something was wrong in the relationship. He did what I guess many people do, he found a reason to be unfaithful to Liz with a virtual stranger. Sure what he overheard sounded bad on the phone and so he acted bad in retaliation. Lila Thurston was a beautiful willing stranger, but a stranger none the less. Just as you are getting to know Roland better; the author takes us back to the middle ages. There we meet several families The Andano family we follow for many years which allows us to understand the characters growth, pain and history. There we meet Marcella and her mother and father. At the same point in time we meet Rene Hermes and his beloved Bella. Their story is beautiful. Each chapter bring you deep within these families and you get to really know them. When you are entwined in the past, you are taken back to the future where Roland has made some life altering decisions. He is finally on track. Perhaps. What this book is missing I can not tell you, there are secrets, mysteries, alchemy, time travel, love, bitterness, I would say it has it all. It is a wonderful book. These characters touched me in such a way, that I can't explain without ruining the book. It is one that I suggest you pick up and read. You will not be sorry. Mark Giglio has done magic with his wording, pacing and most of all sheer joy of his story. Just be prepared for a time twisting, witch burning and miracle laden joyride!
  • In Line for Murder on Aug. 26, 2016

    This is a wonderfully colorful short story. I enjoyed the piecing together of the clues, as few as there seemed to be.
  • Flowers 5 on Aug. 30, 2016

    What exquisite flowers on a black background. Each picture is more vivid and beautiful than the one before. Reds, pinks, yellows, purples, they all were in full bloom. I could have enjoyed more flowers, but I feel happy and calm after seeing such beauty. I appreciate being able to admire such photographic talent.
  • Flowers: Close-ups on Aug. 30, 2016

    The close up pictures were amazing. They had such vibrant colors and textures that came alive in the photographs. Rik Hunik has a real eye for capturing the beauty of a single section of the flower. I could see this on a coffee table. I would enjoy looking at it again and again.
  • Inukshuk Book A Collection Of Images on Aug. 30, 2016

    This is the first time I have been introduced to Inukshuks. They are adorable with little-stacked bodies and outstretched arms. Each picture is unique and the shapes of their heads are just adorable. I am so glad I stumbled upon this book of photographs. I will be introducing these little gifts to my grandchildren tomorrow after school. I know they will be as fascinated as I am. I love the little family of them. It is a great book. Totally a five star book!
