    My new book, Metal Detecting for Beginners: 101 Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started, was released April 15 and began selling well immediately. This month, I inked a deal with White's Electronics, Inc. to license 1,000 copies under custom cover to include with their beginner detecting packages. In the detecting world, getting a thumbs up from White's is like getting the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. Pretty stoked about it! More at

    My family memoir entitled Bev: The Invisible Sister by Rory Janis Miller was released in March and is available in paperback or ebook on Amazon and other outlets.  A recorded interview with Bob Cohen will be aired on May 30, 2016 at 6:00 on WDIY on the Lehigh Valley Arts Salon.  Bob and I discuss my writing, my family's story, and the plight of children with intellectual disabilities in state run institutions.  I hope you'll tune in and give it a listen!

    Astrobiologists aren’t necessarily looking for ET – yet. Biology is about everything living, from bacteria to mammals. But if there’s cellular life, it could lead to the evolution of sentient beings. It’s a big if. The presence of single cell eukaryotes doesn’t guarantee development to – more scientists.

    Where most of us gather food from sterilized packages in gleaming stores, ride around in motor vehicles, wear clothes made in a third-world sweatshop, and entertain ourselves with endless media options, our modern selves are anything but simple. Turn off the switch, and most of us are likely to fumble in the darkness.

    I just published my first novel in paperback from FastPencil, for $9.99, The Girl in the Bird. It's a science fiction/romance set mostly in the Society for Creative Anachronism. It will come out in April on Amazon for only $2.99. If anybody is interested and you actually buy a copy, especially the Amazon one when it comes out, I'd really appreciate it if you could review it after you've read it.

    One of the more difficult tasks for me as a new writer, besides crafting a query letter, or synopsis (which I irreverently call suck-nopsis), was to create an author bio. At last year's GLVWG, keynote speaker and social media maven, Kristen Lamb, gave me some pointers.

    While searching through the attic trunk of incomplete story starts, an old tale written few years back read quite different to me.

    My fantasy novella, Worthy of Prometheus, is now available in paperback.  This was a long time in coming because the eBook edition has been out for over a year.  Because it is so short (100 pages) it retails on Amazon and B&N for $6.00 as a paperback.  As an eBook it is available for $.99 cents through the same retailers.  (It's also available as an audiobook.)
