Hometown Kelly and the Gizmo Team [NOOK Book]

Overview

It was Hell and always had been. He'd worked not to wish he'd died with his parents in the accident he'd been too young to remember. He was alive and they weren't. Because they weren't, he was so rich he was kept alive. As long as he was, others had control of the wealth and used it, in his name of course, to make more. But they didn't know he was there. No one did. He thought.

Meet the Author

People started telling me I should be a writer in about second grade, 19...53. Although the record of my forty year flirtation with higher education does appear to be training for it, I said, "If you can't say it in fourteen lines, you're complicating it too much." I thought, "I get paid for poetry and I am not doing that much work. I've got plenty to read," and then I ran out. I ordered a fan fiction story, and I wrote one, and another, and several, and a couple books... I won two Fan-Q's and a woman said, "Write for us. You can do it." Colin Baker said, "Write." I said, "Yes, Colin." Anyone who's read that fan fiction will see Paradox Equation began as a continuation. I was making the Sixth Doctor my archetypical time-traveling hero. It was time to leave fan fiction. The story concepts were good. The Doctor wasn't the hero who belonged in them. That was twenty years ago, spring of 1992.


I am a talespinner. I shall spin you a tale of heroes of the wide velvet night.


(c)1993 A Talespinner's Web targetyonder.com


I write science fiction romance, but it's the literary definition of romance. Swashbuckle, Baby, in "white tie and tails." High romantic fantasies, million word mysteries, family sagas, statesmen, gurus and wise immortals. Loving dads, sons and brothers, and of course, the women who understand and appreciate them. High fashion and landscape design. Materials and art, I use the reader's imagination to create them. This is where physiology comes in. The books are built to be read very fast, specifically for the way women visualize. Research on the soap operas of the fifties, trends in international populist (fan) fiction, technological development, and above all, long-term entertainment value. It has to be good in reruns. The intent is create a body of work that's just fun to read, in spurts or bursts over decades. Ethics, responsibility, nobless oblige, the power of money, the use of prestige. I write good guys win. Period. They're fantasies for women. Men with lots of muscle say, "I love you," a lot.


Most of what is currently published was written in the first decade, 1991-1999, before Mother Nature changed my personal definition of "mature audience." I hope you'll remain with me as I and my work mature and enjoy the second decade of my work now being published, as well.


I've lived many places and visited far more. My current residence is on a high mesa in New Mexico, in the United States, where I am engaged in a habitat restoration project.


Explanation of the Pilots Group:


Some of these works have been sitting on my hard drive close to twenty years and they're no fun for anyone just sitting there. They're exactly what they've been titled, pilots, like for a TV series. It is my intent and hope that other writers will choose to continue the adventures of the characters. There are only three restrictions. Don't kill off my heroes, don't make good guys bad guys and give my story credit if you publish. Yes, you may publish and make money on your stories. I loved reading and writing fan fiction, but the limitations on it could be frustrating, so... Have fun with these works that specifically don't have them.
