Street Dog Dreams

3681576516?profile=RESIZE_710xStreet Dog Dreams by Genie Gabriel is an excellent book. If you're partial to dogs or if you love stories that favor the "underdog" who overcomes adversity, then this is the book for you. The human characters, including the dogs, are memorable and some are adorable. Like many stories, including real life situations, good at times must overcome the evilness that infringes upon their space. This is the book for all, no matter your political favor/background.
The story takes place Sardinia, Italy in the twenty-first century. Horace and Maddie Ainsworth seek a new dogdom for Royal Canines, who's planet Candid was destroyed. They've been staying with the Horace and Mattie at their castle in Oregon since the Royal Canines' space craft had crash-landed on Earth. They learn of houses selling for one Euro in Sardinia. Horace, an inventor, and his wife, a time machine adventurer, fly to Sardinia on a commercial airplane to buy a house and property for a new dogdom. Perilous predicaments occur that could destroy the Ainsworth and the Royal Canines' dream and hopes for a dog sanctuary on the island of Sardinia. The story line is unpredictable with evil doers and dog lovers clashing with each other. The characters, both human and canine, are real and memorable. The ending is…you'll have to read Street Dog Dreams to find out.

Just some updates


I recently published my latest collection of short fiction and poetry, Once Upon a Dark and Eerie...

It's an ebook of fantasy and sci-fi fiction and dark poetry.







Once Upon a Dark and Eerie...  

Snippets, sonnets and stories to make you shiver. 

A morbid and morose collection of tales designed to scare, dismay and leave you wondering.  Open the pages into worlds of horror, dark fantasy, and satire, where things creep in shadowy corners, where they like to hear you scream. 

Once Upon a Dark and Eerie... will show you it isn’t safe in space, why fairy tales, clowns and rubber duckies are more than what they seem and why you should lock your doors in the dark.

The Sam Harper Series:

These two books are are excellent police procedures.

A non-fiction history book, that mixes in tales of ghosts. From my review- "This book is one part history lesson, one part ghost story and one part paranormal primer, stirred into a delightfully entertaining read."

Here are two from my want-to-read list:-Thunder and Blood by Stacey Voss

Sisters, vampires and portals to another world.

-Angel Of Death: Book One of the Chosen by Karen Dales

"The Vampires of London are being murdered and only the Angel of Death can save them."

YA Fantasy:

I reviewed the first two books in this series; very charming.
