My Mother Called

She wanted to tell me that she was out of coffee. Dad bought cases of coffee at 69¢ a can about 10 years ago and she finally used it all up.

I love my mother, but I had to tune her out while she talked and get back to work. Eventually she asked me if I was still there. I said that I had to work to do and people were waiting for me to finish.

I am not a bad son, really, it’s just that I don’t care if she is out of coffee, and I really do have people nagging me at work.

    Larry is retired. He has spent so much time with her that he no longer hears anything that she says.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
