Strange things are growing in Leonard Slinket’s watermelon field. Why have they come and what do they want? In this story of mystery, humor, fun and adventure, the answer may lie in the lon’s beauty, their need for each other, and what they tell us about ourselves. Adult, young adult, watermelon... be lonified!...
A sinfully delightful collection of 50 short stories by established and up-and-coming writers from across the United States, Canada and South Africa. Melding art with craft, this delightful and sometimes scary collection explores lustful cravings, dirty tricksters, and the occaisional murder. The collection also showcases original art by artists from around the country. The cover image, "Envy" was created by California artist Stephen Anderson, a self-proclaimed "pyrogrpaher" who uses a blowtorch in much of his art. This is a must-read for art and story lovers. Reviews: By Karen K. Dunham on November 25, 2004 Original Sin is an excellent collection of short stories. The seven...
A wise and rakish debut collection filled with landscapes of breakage but also rich seedbeds of redemption. Pam Calabrese MacLean's signature image is perhapsthe glass horse that, all its legs broken, "grew wings." MacLean's voice has enormous emotional range; it flies, and packs a wicked punch mid-air, cutting through the posturing and pretension so frequent in today's poetry. I know of no other poet who can defrost her fridge so poetically, dream of 'doing' the Marlborough Man so sexily, or demythologize crème brulee so definitively. The voices in these poems are feisty, powerful, and unforgettable. Fasten your seatbelt; read this...

Delightfully funny, sometimes sinful, occasionally mournful--this collection of flash fiction stories tells the stories of folks at various crossroads whose lives intermingle in brief, transitory moments intersecting at times--and on that rare occasion add up to something momentous. Over the last ten years many non-fiction how-to books have gotten shorter and more concise. "Blink: Flash Fiction Before You Can Bat an Eye" shows how this trend is affecting fiction. "Blink" is an excellent book for a busy housewife (or househusband) who doesn't have time for a long read, a business professional who wants a short read on the commuter train, or...

It takes courage to call my book The Lons. It doesn’t exactly ring like War and Peace or For Whom the Bell Tolls. The what? people say. The Lungs?  Even Amazon’s search engine is confused. “Do you mean The Lions?” it politely inquires. Yet, the more I say it, the easier it gets. After all, it’s a lot more fun to say the name comes from weird watermelons, rather than a complicated marriage and a tragic accident. That was how I described my first novel with the dignified title of Fighting Gravity. “Gravity,” I’d say, “as in grave circumstances.”   I’m still...
Things in the Neagle house have been hopping recently. For the past year I have been working with a production company in San Diego on a thriller/horror script while also outlining my story for a comedic screenplay. Writing for the screen has heightened my understanding of story structure, and I have enjoyed facing the challenge of efficiency in storytelling that film demands. However, I look forward to getting back to novel writing when these projects are complete and to the deeper internal explorations it allows. On the reading front, I remain fascinated by all things related to neuroscience, sticking primarily to...
