For the blog tour, I’m featuring some of the questions I’ve been receiving from my readers: Darlene Suber blogs at http://mouseybooks.com/ 1) When did you realize that you wanted to write? Answer: I was born a writer. My first book (an illustrated six-page ‘book’ with big letters) was at 3 years old. 2) What made you decide to write thrillers? …

Austin Dragon After Eden Series Tek-Fall, Series Overview Leave a Comment

Series Overview I may never have written a word of fiction in more than 15 years, but there was never a time that the ideas were not flowing. Why this seven-book series, with at least two companion novels, would ‘force’ me to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard), I don’t know? It’s a beast. Over seventy years in …

Austin Dragon Character Profile, Sleepy Hollow Horrors Leave a Comment

Character Profile As I once stated in an earlier blog post, I like horror, but most horror today is…crap. Silly, stupid, and gratuitously gruesome are the three normal categories they fall into.

Austin Dragon After Eden Series Tek-Fall, Horror, Sneak Peek Leave a Comment

Hell’s Menagerie (After Eden Series: Tek-Fall, Episode II) My companion mini-series concludes. In Metal Flesh (Episode I), the focus was on “living” inorganic robots. Now with the concluding Hell’s Menagerie (Episode II), we move to “man-made” organic creatures. I marvel at the groundbreaking story of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (full title: Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus) which was written in 1818 anonymously …

Inevitable Evolution? Toys to Terminators

Austin Dragon After Eden Series Tek-Fall, Science Fiction, Writer Musings Leave a Comment

Science Fiction, Science Future: Inorganic Beings from Tantalizing Toys to Terrible Terminators? In my science fiction novella, Metal Flesh (After Eden Tek-Fall, Episode I) I touch on some concepts related to inorganic beings, also known as robots and androids. Long before movies with such characters as the Data from Star Trek, Terminator from the 1980s, even Robby the Robot from the …
