Are you ready for your computer to crash? I wasn’t!



The hard drive didn’t crash, but the computer didn’t start. After multiple attempts at rebooting and letting windows try to fix the problem, it looked like all was lost. I tried using a recovery flash drive. Same thing—nothing. I usually do a backup of my important files at least once a week. I had edited the first three chapters of my WIP the day before the problem started, but I didn’t do a backup. In desperation, I was able to access the command prompt. I had forgotten most of the old DOS commands, but was able to see that the hard drive was working! I immediately did a backup of the document files to a flash drive.

So, the drive on my computer gets a lot of wear. Besides writing, I also dabble in photography and video editing. My drive has had a lot of use over the years. I have a new solid-state drive on the way which I will clone my existing drive to. I have also made a drive image just in case I have a major crash before I swap the drives.

Even if you back up your important files, make sure you are ready for a major catastrophe. If your drive crashes, not only will you need those files you have made copies of, you will have to reinstall all of your programs also. This can take forever. If you have a drive image, you can restore it to the new drive and everything will be back! Make sure you have a recovery flash drive too.

I got lucky this time…

Something new to do while you are staying home!

Are you tired of being stuck at home? You are staying home, right? I thought so. Because of all the things we can’t do, I’ve decided to share some of my games with you and the world! Have fun creating them, and then, have fun playing them.

Create and play!

 Stay Safe!

Thirteen-year-old Rodney Becker has discovered the secret of playing every song in the world. Hoodoo!

Rodney’s dream of joining a real band has come true, and the bandleader has already booked their first gig—her cousin’s birthday party. Now, Rodney has a week to learn the most difficult guitar part ever for the birthday girl’s favorite song. Failure could mean his rival, Eddie Manford, taking his place.

Rodney has dabbled with spells before, and he knows there can be consequences. Like losing his voice after trying a spell to help him sing, and a car accident that may take someone’s life. Rodney’s search for a magical fix leads him to a crossroads at midnight, waiting for a man to tune his guitar. Some say the man who shows up will be the devil—coming for Rodney’s soul!

Can Rodney afford to pay the price?

At the Crossroads – Blues Bones II was scheduled to be released July 22, 2019 by publisher Leap Books LLC. Leap Books closed April 26, 2019. We were in the final stages of edits when this happened, and all rights of book one and book two reverted to me. I decided to self publish and contacted Kelly Hashway, the editor for Leap Books who acquired the original Blues Bones but left Leap Books not long after book one was released. Hashway, a professional freelance editor and USA Today bestselling author, was a lifesaver. To the best editor ever, thank you! (KellyHashway.com)

Look for At The Crossroads July 26th!

Happy Birthday!

Peter Frampton

Happy Birthday to PeterFrampton! @PeterFrampton. One of my guitar heroes. Some of my favorites are Baby I Love Your Way, Penny for Your Thoughts, Do You Feel like We Do, and Show Me the Way!

After seeing him on the Mike Douglas Show, I even modified an old cassette recorder to make a Talkbox using its microphone and part of a water hose! Maybe this explains Max’s love of electronics in my book Blues Bones.

Looking forward to At the Crossroads-Blues Bones II’s book birthday on July 22! Remembering how much I struggled to learn to play Penny for Your Thoughts inspired a major event in book two!
