In a move they may soon regret, FUZE Publishing asked me to write an occasional blog on their site. (Gladly, he answered, as he turned his head away and smirked).
Please visit their blog site periodically to see what latest word-crossed ramblings crossed my mind on their way to the FUZE site. The world may not be my oyster (a good thing since I can't tolerate the slimy suckers) but they said I could write about anything.

Nobody Knows the Spanish I Speak Now Available in Both Paperback and eBook
In early December of 2005, the author (don't you love it when you get to talk about yourself in the third person and you're not even a famous actor or NBA star?) and his wife, along with their dog and cat, packed up their 21st century jalopy, a black Audi Quattro with a luggage carrier on top, and left Portland, Oregon, for San Miguel de Allende, three thousand miles away in the middle of Mexico, where they knew no one and could barely speak the language. Things fell apart almost from the beginning. The house they rented was as cold as a restaurant’s freezer. Their furniture took longer than expected to arrive. They couldn’t even get copies of their house keys made. They unintentionally filled their house with smoke and just as unintentionally knocked out the power to their entire neighborhood. In other words, they were clueless. Nobody Knows the Spanish I Speak is their story.
Ay, chihuahua! Ay, caramba! Oy vey!

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have hired Ray Rhamey as my book designer. Not only are we from the same tribe (that is, he's also a cartoonist), but his keen eye and creative mind took the rough clay, make that mud, of my manuscript and turned it into a sparkling gem.
