Local Author Fair

I was happy to be part of Sachem Public Library's Local Author Fair last Saturday.

The place was filled with enthusiastic book fans and I had the opportunity to hand out book marks, while introducing Toby and Claudia to several interested attendees. And I even signed a few books.

It was nice to meet other fellow authors, too. It was a a lot of fun.




Favorite new shirt!

Meet Author John W. Howell

I'm happy to share my blog with with fellow member authors of Rave Reviews Book Club as part of the RRBC's Pay It Forward Week. Initially introduced by author Bethany Turner, the concept of Pay It Forward is to profile, promote and propel another fellow club member to new audiences for the day.

This month, I have the honor of hosting John Howell.

John has authored two full-length books and is in his creative chair pumping out a third.  His most notable published work is the fiction thriller, My Grl, rated a Five Star Award by the book review site, Readers' Favorite. (Read review here: Readers' Favorites)


Synopsis: John J. Cannon successful San Francisco lawyer takes a leave of absence from the firm and buys a boat he names My GRL. He is unaware that his newly-purchased boat had already been targeted by a terrorist group. John's first inkling of a problem is when he wakes up in the hospital where he learns he was found unconscious next to the dead body of the attractive young woman who sold him the boat in the first place. John now stands between the terrorists and the success of their mission.

Reviewers rave that My Grl is a fast-paced thriller with unexpected twists and turns, and hair-raising action.
