My Book Reviews;

The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories (Hercule Poirot, #44)The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I only knew one of the nine short stories in this anthology, The Mystery of The Spanish Chest which I had read in another anthology of Poirot stories. I am not horror person so I was a not a fan of those but I thought The Actress was really clever, I liked it. The House of Dreams was utterly heartbreaking. I loved The Lonely God! So sweet. Manx Gold was a lot of fun, I love that she created a real life treasure hunt, and created a story full of clues, see if you can guess where everything is before you get to the end where all the explanations are, I couldn’t. Within a Wall was also heartbreaking. I adore Harley Quinn so I was delighted to find I had never read this story, and it is really sweet and a bit scary, just like Mr. Quinn himself.

I totally recommend it 🙂

An AutobiographyAn Autobiography by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is about the third time I read her autobiography and it is interesting that I pluck new things out of it each time. This time I recognized two characters from one of my favorite books that I just kind of glossed over the last time.

Also I really enjoyed her view of travel and the middle east. It makes me sort of sad because some of those very sites, that her husband worked so hard on were destroyed recently. And she brings all the beauty and people of the region to life for the reader.

As your read her novels you see her grow and change with her experiences, and as you read her autobiography you see where that growth came from.

Excellent read.

Thoughts on the loss of an Icon and my usual stuff

Please forgive this little remembrance but I have had a hard time concentrating today.  As I am sure all of you know an icon passed away today.  Leonard Nimoy has been part of our lives since the 60’s,  I was too young to images (1)watch Star Trek in its initial run but my Dad was huge fan and when he began his part of Paris in Mission Impossible I became a fan.  A few years later my cousin was in the first Star Trek movie and when I went to see him I fell in love Star Trek.  I was determined to see all the episodes which took patience and a commitment in the 70’s.  You had to wait for it to rebroadcast, no tapes, no DVDs, no DVR.  Just patiently waiting for it to play again.  I fell in love with all the characters, but Spock was special because though he was stoic he was such a vulnerable lonely man.  I felt such sympathy for him, he touched my heart.

Star Trek was the first fandom I became involved with. The first fan fictions stories I ever read was from Star Trek.  The first fan fiction stories I ever wrote was from Star Trek.  The first convention I ever attended was for Star Trek.  That was an amazing convention at the Los Angles Convention Center.  It was an anniversary of Trek, I don’t remember which one but the whole cast was on the stage.  I was so impressed, even though I was all the way in the back and they looked like tiny ants back where I was sitting.  I remember getting a soar throat  screaming and applauding Leonard Nimoy, Bill Shatner and Deforest Kelley on the stage.  I was so excited to see and hear them talk and joke.  And then Gene Roddenberry came on stage and talked about the origins of the show. Then they were all the stage chatting.  I was on cloud nine.  The next time I saw Leonard Nimoy was a smaller convention at the Burbank Hilton through Creation, He and Zachary Quinto were there to chat about and promote the new JJ Abram’s Star Trek.  It was the only time I got up close and chatted with him during the autograph period.  He was friendly and funny. He reminded me of my Dad.  I will miss him. 

 

Well on to our regularly scheduled program, I will be doing a couple of events in March; 

 

10409783_803245753049352_3893712058043773424_nI will be appearing on For Promote This! With Jennifer Perry.  On March 3rd Tuesdays at 5:00PM PST.  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/authorsontheairradio2

I will also be appearing at Condor in March,  check out the schedule and say hello 🙂 http://www.condorcon.org/html/mainmenu.html

Birthday and Other Projects On The Horizon

When I was young I really looked forward to my birthday, it was my day.  I still do but now I feel this deep authormelancholy as I reach the day.  Reflections of my life and my plans flood my mind.  It is not getting older that bothers me it is really the realization that so many of my dreams are now behind me.  Not really achievable.  The reason I started my memoir, which is now in its final stages is because of this melancholy, it began as a therapy in a way and now it is something I am quite proud of.  I can’t wait to share it with you.

 

A scheduling note Chatting With Sherri will be off on Feb. 17th for the simple reason that it is my birthday.  We will back with wonderful shows Feb. 24th 🙂

He also talked about his screenwriting book and how that came about and how it is to be asked to sign it.  We all have transitions in  life so we talked about some ways to handle them.  He is always charming and fun to talk to, we had a great time talking about writing, movies and Xena! Listen in to our chatty hour;     and check out his fan page on face book for all his activities;   https://www.facebook.com/StevenLSearsFanPage

Try Things That Scare You!


I have been attending a lot of on-line webinars during this quiet period.  I have been inspired by them to both stretch in new ways and try new methods to bring my work to the attention of others.  We never stop learning and should never, ever stop exploring.  When you stop trying you stop growing and that in a way is an early death, something I never want to do.  My Dad taught me that education is an ongoing part of life.  He was still trying new things toward the end of his life which inspires me to keep stretching myself.  I have never been afraid of trying new things.  I do get nervous about others reaction to these attempts but that should not stop you.  Keep trying, keep exploring and try things that are scary to you.  That is the lust of life.

 

One ofantasy Time Inc new Coverf the changes that are afoot is for my novel, Fantasy Time Inc. I am going to change the book cover and update the inside too. It will be a better book when I get through with it. So It will be pulled at the end of my contract with my publisher to come back beautiful, shiny and even better than before. Here is the new cover, let me know what you think?
