About "Boogie: A Life With The Devil."
This full length novel grew out of the Five Star short story, "Blackbird: A Young Boy Meets the Devil For the First Time."
It follows the little boy from that first meeting with the devil, all the way through his life... until the surprise end.
Meet "Bill the Blackbird" and "Boogie McCain" and a host of other interesting characters...
As the devil never gives up in trying to get Boogie to sign away his soul... in return for fame and fortune...
and a few other things as well!

This review is from: Blackbird: A Boy Meets The Devil For the First Time (Kindle Edition)
I've been reading about 70 years and Blackbird is one of those rare nuggets of pure gold in a whole mountain of clay . It plays out like the blues, full of riffs and bass and gravel that spin themselves into a mirror of soul not ashamed to get down and dirty and come up dragging us into a light we refused to open our eyes to before. Don't let the stomp and shuffle and guffaws fool you into thinking it's not about you, you ain't gonna get off that easy. I was in Gadsden Alabama for about three months in 1958, and he's not telling any lies. It was my first experience with deep southern segregationist views. A great morality tale told by a masterful and powerful writer about a very unique character.
About this story:
#1 in Free Category "Karate"
#11 in Free Category "Motivational"
January 18, 2012
What happens when a beautiful young woman asks an aging old fighter,
which Martial Art he recommends?
The result is this letter.
It is not only to her, but to any young person, woman or not,
who might want to know more about the fighting arts.
And which one an old fool recommends.
You will be surprised which one it is.
From the author of
A Top 100 Free for Kindle Story...
"The Killing of Train-Man Brown"
"Jump Through The Window."
"Advice to a Beautiful Young Woman From an Aging Old Fool."
"One Perfect Moment: A Story of Karatekas Jack Swift and Bill Klase."
The title is misleading. It may have taken a beautiful woman to get him started but it is good old fashioned wisdom suitable for everyone. Old-fashioned in the sense of *old fools can have a better perspective on why things are done the way they are* rather than in the sense of *heard that a million times*.
This was a brilliant reminder to enjoy each day as it is given. So often as we struggle through today, we dream about tomorrow. Tomorrow it'll be better. Tomorrow I'll have my debt paid off. Tomorrow I'll lose those last 10 pounds. Tomorrow I'll forgive him/her/them. Tomorrow I'll say I'm sorry. The problem is tomorrow never comes. Tomorrow becomes today and we forget to enjoy it for what it is and the next thing we know, we're out of tomorrows. Will's brilliant letter to a friend, reminds us to don't worry, be happy, and gives us several encouraging reasons why.
Forget the motivational seminars and expensive books, this book will do it for you.
