Editorial Reviews

From the Author

'The Luck of the Maya' has been an enjoyable book to write and took me back to my various travels in that area, most of them a long time ago by now. I was able to dredge through my stock of old photographs for the inside illustrations; they are all mine, taken at one time or another. A 'Thanks' is due my wife Alicia for her patience during the process, and for her photo images: that's her on the cover, looking like Lucy. 
A couple more stories will be posted in the near future: 
In 'The Amazon and the Dead' I have followed the report of Padre Gaspar de Carvajal (who was there) in recounting the adventures of Francisco de Orellana, the first (known) European to float down the 4000+ miles of the Amazon River (in 1542). I had to plow through a bunch of 16th Century Spanish for this one. 
'The Goddess' is now complete and has been great of fun to write. And fun to research--I learned a lot about Olde England, Neanderthals, pirates and all. And enjoyed speculating about the future. It is in process of working its way to the Kindle.
'The Haunting of Thanksgiving' is a short story, just for fun and is in also process of working its way to the Kindle.
