An alien ship, in trouble, lands on Hollywood Boulevard. Bad enough? And it's the day of the big premier of the SciFi movie Asteroid, so they land amid huge crowds. It gets worse... One of the crew members is lost trying to find a bathroom. Two earthlings who help replace the broken motivators won't leave the ship. And the U. S. Air Force has them surrounded. What are the poor Berki to do?

The Berki are aliens. We've heard everything about aliens, right?-how they're so advanced they'll order us around, or so cute we want to cuddle them, or so evil they'll destroy us. But what if they've figured out interstellar travel, but not much else? The earth would certainly seem mysterious: advanced cities, cell phones, and blockbuster movies. And this strange thing called the Internet, which they fear is a form of magic they'll be unable to duplicate. So they fly around and gather what information they can. And maybe look for a lost comrade while they're at it. That is, as long as their spacecraft works properly. They're aboard a Maginator-class spacecraft, a class not known for its reliability.

Welcome aboard the Periwinkle!

About the Author

I'm a Coloradan, living and working in Ridgway, Colorado. I wrote some books that were "serious" (such as "About Phillip"--on Kindle for 99 cents), but then got the fantasy bug. Why fantasy? Because I can stretch myself to my limits and have great fun doing so!

I stumbled on the idea for the flying broomstick series while attending a long and boring meeting. By the time I was on the airplane home, I was feverishly writing down everything I could remember from my daydreams. The result is "The Story of the Great American Flying Broomstick, Book 1: Genesis." Since then I've added "Book 2: The Missing Wand," and "Book 3: FOG at the Crossroads." The books reflect my outlook on life: humor, pluck, and willingness to try most anything.

The most frequent comment I get from readers is that they seem so real. One reader, a retired Air Force Colonel and long-time pilot, told me that I got all the flying scenes exactly right. In fact, regarding the trip to Las Vegas in the first Broom book, he was convinced I had to have flown the route myself in a small aircraft. (Nope, but I sure did study a bunch of maps!) Others say that when they drive up to my house, they fully expect to see me on the broom, hovering overhead! So, if that sort of fun is up your alley, dive right in. All three books in the "Story of the Great American Flying Broomstick" series are available for only a buck apiece on Kindle. Download today!
