Mario has dedicated his life to raising his family and providing a solid foundation; now the empty nest is allowing him to pursue his passion for writing.
In 1977 his idea for Store Wars, a children's animated fantasy, was born while he was working night shifts stocking grocery store shelves. It was way back then that he knew he wanted to write. Life got in the way and it wasn't until 2006 that he finished his first novel, Snap. Writing in his spare time—in airports and hotels, on weekends and during late nights—is what it is taking to realize his dream of being a writer. Maintaining a good sense of humor also helps.
Mario has a diverse background. In a career ranging from real-estate broker to restaurateur to Director of Sales with two global corporations, his creativity and energy have always driven his success.
That same energy and creativity also drive his storytelling. "The harder you work, the luckier you get." Nothing could be truer for Mario.
"The Final Tenet" is part 2 of "The First Tenet". Dove and Adam battle to the end, trying to impose their beliefs on each other and the world. The question remains; is this prophecy unfolding? Or is it sensationalized, prime time ratings gold?
Time travel was once just for dreamers, writers, and philosophers, but the physicist Warren Hardy is on the verge of making it available for daily commuters.What stands in his way is a choice between the ultimate love and the ultimate sacrifice; one could save the world.
Cleah: The Lost Fury Chronicles The Otherworld
on Oct. 14, 2012
Cleah; The Lost Fury Chronicles Of The Otherworld is one of the first books I have read in this specific genre and I found it thoroughly entertaining! The only other author I have read that plays with magic and fantasy is Neil Gaiman. I feel that I was equally entertained reading his books as this one. This book has been on Amazon for a little over a year and deserves a lot more 4 and 5 star reviews! I banged this book off in a weekend!
Brenda McCeight has an incredible knack for creating believable alternative worlds that drew me in and kept me there. The likable and sympathetic Cleah and gently flawed Ronan take you along on their adventures of self discovery and awareness. Who are they? What are they? It all unfolds from Chapter 1 onward and is a true page turner. Many twists as well and well laid out plot.
What I enjoyed the most about this story is the journey. A lot of people will be able to relate to the challenges/symbolisms in their lives.
The story could easily do with a sequel, maybe a trilogy. I would hope that is the intent because this world and these characters deserve some “life”. Well done! I give you 5 out of 5 stars for imagination and story. Like ALL books I’ve read, there is always a little room for improvement on polish, but it does not interfere with the power of great story telling for you, so a solid “5” it is.
