About the Author

Michael Angel's worlds of contemporary fantasy range from the unicorn-ruled world of the Morning Land to the gritty underside of Los Angeles. Author of the bestselling Centaur of the Crime - where C.S. Lewis meets CSI - his books populate shelves in languages from Russian to Portuguese.

He currently resides in Southern California. Alas, despite keeping a keen eye out for griffins, centaurs, or pegasi, none have yet put in an appearance on Hollywood Boulevard.

Michael Angel's welcome mat is out at his website, so feel free to visit: michaelangelwriter.com.

THis one is so funny! It kind of leaves you wondering if you ever went home to meet someones family if they would be like this. Billy-bob is a great chaperon, Simon is wonderfully confused throughout the whole thing, and Jolene just rolls with the punches. A great laugh in a short period of time. Definately recommnend it.

For anyone who has ever changed schools mid-year, this story is for you.

Simon gets thrust into the "boots and horses" world of a small town in Texas...and his beachcomber look and attitude are making it hard for him to make connections with the other kids. When he finally gets a date with Jolene, he learns that there's a catch...and that leads the reader into a fun situation at the drive-in theater.

It's a quickie read, and shows off Michael Angel and JD Culter's ability to catch the reader in the first couple of paragraphs since you don't have 50pgs like a novel to do that with.

Oh, and take time to read the intro to Centaur of the Crime...you're going to want to grab the whole novel when you finish that small sample. If you merged Abby and Gibbs from NCIS -- you'd get Dayna Chrissie, the LA CSI who is the odd-woman-out in a very male dominated society of the police department. Michael Angel is on his own for this novel, and he can take you on a ride between worlds like the best of the fantasy-genre authors.

To write a story you need a character - in a setting - with a problem.
That's what Simon (the narrator and beach lover) tell us at the very beginning. He is a real enough guy that you can connect with him, the setting is described well enough to bring some of the Texan biker movies to your mind and the problem - well, it really is a bit of problem when you're trying to impress a girl with your love for Shakespeare and her father shackles you with a chaperon for Romeo & Juliet, isn't it?
It's short, fun but not too engaging. You wont be rolling on the ground, but you'll probably be smiling a lot.

A bit too short. It was funny, but I wanted more information. I didn't feel like reading the preview for the other book.

This one was good for a quick chuckle. The sad part was that you can actually imagine a world where this would happen, and not just in the heads of brothers and fathers everywhere!

Like Angel's "I Got Some Bad Muse For You," this story represents a dubious idea stretched out . . . with some Shakespeare thrown in. The characters are super-thin and the "jokes" often fall flat. If your idea of a typical Southerner is a guy in overalls who carries a shotgun in his lap at the insistence of a father who insists that his college-age daughter take a chaperone to the movies, then this story will be right up your alley. But of course they all love Shakespeare! What a terrific joke, huh?

This is a funny quick read in a very conversational style. You kinda feel like you met up with the main character, maybe at the local pub, and somehow fell into his telling you about this one chick he knows. You won't be rolling on the ground laughing but it'll entertain ya.

The author does a good job at maintaining the flow of the story. The characters are not subtle by any means, total over-the-top stereotypes: we have our Jeff Spicolli surfer dude ('Aloha, Mr. Hand!') who goes home with sweet little smalltown, country-fried, girl next door and you soon meet her rootin'-est, tootin'-est, buckle-sportin', bronco-bustin' Pappy and her 'there-have-been-way-too-many-Bubba-jokes' cousin...and don't forget the gap-toothed townies always lookin' to raise a little rukus! Throw in a bit of major property damage and you could call that an eventful night. If you're looking for a quick light read, this would be a good choice.
