Dorian Danger Adventures Collection


front cover dorian

My grandson, Dorian Danger, (yes, that is his real middle name), asked me to make an adventure series including him, family and friends in the stories. He wanted to use my real-life accident of racing sailboat. He wanted it to include lava bombs, tsunami and being stranded alone. I had to break the story into four different adventures. I hope you enjoy these short stories of one little fearless 10 year old boy.

Four Hybodus sharks were born in an underground channel. They needed to feed and broke into the shrimp pen at Mr. Lock Bait Shop. Lock had a dirty little secret, he was adding Human Growth Hormone to accelerate the growth of his bait fish.
The black-market dealer who sold to Mr. Lock, also was using the Human Growth Hormone to make a drug that with a drop or two you could get drunk. He gave out samples at the last football game. The word got around he was back and selling under the bleachers at the High School Football game.
There was one side effect, the drug caused extreme aggression. Police switch board was lighting up; riot at the high school, shark at the fishing derby, missing people and what next thought the Police Inspector.

Mexican Tile Garden Project Book


cover mexican brick

Just released on Amazon.com in Kindle, Kindle Direct Library and paperback book.

When I moved into my house everything was great except, the previous owner had red and gray stepping stones and red lava rock everywhere. I decided that the stepping stones needed more color so I went on Amazon and order 100 Mexican tiles. I had so much fun with the stepping stones, I wanted to do more. Seven months later, 450 Mexican tiles, countless tubes of Liquid Nails and tons of glass accent pieces, I finished my little project which I photographed for this book. I hope you find this helpful and have as much fun as I had transforming my yard.
