I’m delighted to announce my fourteenth book is scheduled for release on and elsewhere on April 5, 2015. It is titled Touched and subtitled Speculative and Flash Fiction. It is the second of my fiction short story anthologies. The first, Palpable Imaginings, was a book I compiled of the short stories of eight writers (including some of my own creations) and can be found on I wrote all the stories in Touched.

With Love,

    Again…you did it. Russ, you are fantastic. And today we had World book day and I was allowed to read to Reception children -4/5 year olds -in school. I could choose the books, and I read to them Clyde and I . They loved it, specially Clyde and the blue banana. I showed them also a picture of you as the author. I also left them one of the cards with the giraffe you sent me to remember the lovely story! I enjoyed it as much as they did ! Thank you!
