Welcome to my site!

Hi, everyone,

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table at the recent 2022 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention.  I had more fun than last year, which I didn’t think was possible.  We saw some old friends, met some new friends, sold some books, bought some books, read a chunk of the Barnstormers story to the crowd, and had an all-around great time.  We’re already planning to go next year.

 

Next up. I will have a table at the Indie Author Book Expo at the Peoria Civic Center on June 18th.  I’ve never been to this show before, but I figure that if I want to sell books, I need to get out there and sell books!

But before that show happens, I need to get writing.  I’m planning to collect all the Kindle-only “Lost” Sleep Detectives stories, along with a new one that kind of wraps up Danny’s saga, in a paperback to be available some time this summer.  I also need to get back to work on book three of Barnstormers.  I’m mindful that the end of the book is also the end of the trilogy, and I don’t want to screw it up, so I’m taking my time.

And while I’m working on all that, we’ll be going to another new (to us) show, the third annual Southside Comic Book Show is on Saturday, September 17 in the Alan B. Shepard High School Gymnasium.  We met Rocky, who runs the show, at the Windy City Pulp Convention last year, and had a table next to him at this years’ show, so we’re looking forward to seeing him in his home environment.

If you’re here looking for information of the stories I have available, you’re in the right place. My latest published work is Barnstormers Book Two, which you can read about below.  It’s available at Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle.  Details of the other books I have in print are on my Other Books page, and I have some free short stories for you to read on my Short Stories page, including the popular tales of the customers of the Adventure Comics Comics Emporium, and a little piece of fan fiction that I wrote over the COVID summer featuring one of my favorite comedy teams. Check ’em out here.

Stay healthy. Stay safe. I hope to see you all soon..


Kristina “Kiki” Hansen and Bridget Doyle, undercover ICPO agents, continue their barnstorming tour across the country as they land their red-and-yellow Curtiss Jenny biplane in Chicago, where they have been hired to perform some air stunts over Riverview, a popular amusement park on the north side of the city.

But in 1925, Chicago was a dangerous place, where organized crime ran rampant, and several street gangs with their ruthless leaders fought to control the streets of the city. Add to that the activities of the syndicate run by the mysterious Belgian, and Bridget and Kiki will face more danger than ever before!

The action then moves to St. Louis, where the ladies join the prestigious Marie Meyer Flying Circus, only to again run afoul of the Belgian and his henchmen.Written in the style of the cliffhanger serials that thrilled thousands in the early days of cinema, this volume finds our two intrepid aviatrices facing phony cops and real bullets as they travel across the country in search of adventure.

Barnstormers Book Two is available at Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle.
