Alright, after a brief time away from the End of Times series, I am proud to announce that the next book will be Titled, Dragon's Fang: Paladins Old and New.  To get the wheels rolling on this one I will be launching here on the site a teaser of sorts to give you a taste of the book and  additional pieces to add to the Dime Store Novels collection.  The plan is to have the first piece of this done before Thanksgiving and more added to the webpage as we move forward to Christmas.  Just a fair warning though, I see this as being a long read like Dragon's Fang, which consisted of over five hundred pages.  Keep checking in and don't miss out on a single post.  Some things will remain on the page where others will only be temporary.




Big News

The first of my action/suspense/detective novels is almost finished. It's title is Sean Fitzpatrick: Luck of the Draw.  So far, those who have read parts of it are looking forward to the final draft going to the publisher.  Now with this distraction wrapping up, I can return my focus to the End of Times series.  By September I hope to have the conclusion of the first Dime Store series completed with big things happening within its pages that will lead up to the next book in the End of Times series, titled Dragon's Fang: Paladins of the Crusade, which I hope to have ready in time for the holiday series.


The second Dime Store Novel is here!  Go to the books in print page and scroll down to the Dime Store Novels Link.

    Almost thirty five years ago, Philip B. Ruth, my grandfather, laid down a challenge to me.  At the time, I had no idea how that dare would become a mainstay in my life.  Though I dedicated the first book to him, a word of thanks needs to go out to the doomsayers of the world.  Like most hard working, hard headed, southern boys, telling me I can't, or won't be able to, is a sure fire way of getting it done.

    "Always remember the ones who touch your life," he told me, "Be a man of your word, give your all in everything you do, and always remember the people who touch your life, no matter what the impression they make. "  Mr. Walt Lyles was an art teacher in Rialto, California, who once told me to never stop expressing my creativity through my art, no matter what anyone says.  "You are unique, therefore your artistic expression should be a reflection of who and what you are."  In High School, a lovely English teacher by the name of Diane Malarz exclaimed, "These comic books will never get you anywhere in life.  I should think that Todd McFarlane, (90s idol of mine) could dispute that fact.  Mr. Phillip Love, a Principal of my High School once wrote in my class year book, "Stacy is by far the best example of limitless potential, if he could only find a way to tap it.  Each of these statements hold weight in how and why I never gave up on a challenge that became my dream.  Regardless of what Ms. Malarz meant by her statement, here's a fun fact about English, with a twist.  In twelve years, between the ages of eighteen and thirty one, I read the Webster's Collegiate Dictionary three times from front to back.  All for the search of the next big comic book hero name.

    What was the challenge I mentioned?  While drawing my time away with stacks of paper and a handful of pencils, my grandfather came into my room just to see what I was doing.  Proud of my latest accomplishment, being a drawing of Batman, I asked for his opinion, but was heart broken by his reply.  He told me that my talents would be better used if I wasn't copying someone's work.  Then, he explained to me that if I really wanted to impress him, create a character of my own, and give it life.  "If it is what you truly want to do, and believe that it's real, then put your heart and soul into it and give it everything you've got."  From that day forward, I set out to create the best characters and plot lines possible. No matter how much I was chastised or berated, I stayed the course.

    In 2009, my mother passed away due to cancer, and though I would have rather had her in my children's lives, I was left with a small life insurance check. In death, as it was in life, she gave to me and my sister all that she could.  Urged on by Paul Rabideau, my friends, and relations, I risked the gambit and for once put myself first and released my first book, CUDA. This is a life long dream finally coming true, of bringing my stories and characters to the printed page.  
    At this time, I would like to say thank you for your time at my site, and welcome to the Frontline.
