I remember a young boy of six saying he could fly like Superman. He said if Superman can do it so can he. Whatever happened to that little boy that little boy that was me?
By Randy Giles

I was born and raised in the South Bronx, New York a stone throw distance from the old Yankee Stadium. I have been writing since I can remember. I always enjoyed telling stories and have been doing so since first grade when I wrote my very first one.

As an adult I worked for a HVAC wholesaler and retail company as their Computer Systems Administrator. I supervised the computer departments for their three branches located in New York City and State.

I have studied martial arts from the age of 11 and have earned black belts in five different martial arts styles and my students and have performed demonstrations on Johnathan Burke’s Martial Arts Forum on HBO as well as Westchester Cable. Due to my martial arts training I have been head bouncer (head of security) at various clubs in New York for both hip hop and Latin Music. I have also body guard or were personal security for the rock band Van Halen in the early 80’s.

My students and I have performed for the Dance Theatre of Harlem at their open houses and various cultural functions. I was also an extra for the Dance Theatre of Harlem’s ballet Sherherazade and performed with them in the City Center and Kennedy Center where I had the privilege to shake President Ronald Reagan and the first lady’s hand.

Various topics interest me, but I love action/suspense/drama and romance as Ian Fleming is one of my favorite authors. I feel that people love to get away from their everyday lives and go to a place that is rarely, seldom shared called the imagination.

When the Eagle Flies with the Dove is my very first novel which is now entitled NEX FORMA, which I wrote in 1985 and copyrighted in 1990 I am hoping is one of those stories that will take your mind away from the day to day where you find it difficult to put the book down. And once it’s over I’m hoping that you wish that it didn’t end.

I have also written a book of short stories (Flash Fiction) as it called due to he stories being 250 to a 1000 words in length. The stories encompass various genres, hence the title "Flash Fiction Menagerie". In Flash Fiction Menagerie you will discover stories for just about everyone, from, fantasy, romance, mystery, drama, suspence, spooky, comedy, sci-fi and more. Flash Fiction Menagerie also includes a story entitled “GLIMPSE” which is an homage to one of my favorite writers and television show hosts Rod Serling and introduces my first comic book hero HARD TARGET and his origin.

Please keep an eye out for more of my books as I am currently revising others that I have written or currently writing.

What is love? It's one of the questions in life that has run through everyone's mind at one time or another. Not many people can describe what it means to love.

Smashwords book reviews by Randolph Giles

  • Operation: Mistletoe on Sep. 14, 2012

    I just got finished reading Operation Mistletoe and from the very beginning it had me cracking up laughing out loud with tears running down my face. The book is absolutely hysterical and a work of per geneous. I haven't laughed this hard since I saw the episode of Frasier season 5 when they meet Roz's boyfriend's big nose parents. Greg Jackson truly did an excellent job in writing an extremely funny adult holiday book. This is a must read!!!
