Mom, today we learned about vampires and nymphos
I was recently a guest speaker at Barnum Elementary. The challenge was how to describe my books without revealing the titles because I didn't want the kids to go home and say, "Guess what, mom. Today we had a guy talk about The Nymphos of Rocky Flats and X-Rated Bloodsuckers!" Fortunately, my latest book Werewolf Smackdown has a G-rated title and I had PowerPoint slides to show of my comic book.
RudyG (of La Bloga
) had invited me to his class of English as a Second Language students. Very bright kids though a bit shy, at first. They sent me fan mail and a large poster decorated with vampiros and other undead creatures.
This last weekend we bid farewell to Dennis Hopper. While he's mostly remembered for Easy Rider and Blue Velvet (as the deliciously creepy Frank Booth), Hopper also starred in gems such as Space Truckers (with the deliciously bikinied Debi Mazar).
How much can you tell about someone by what they wear? And can you extend that analysis to their writing? Well, I did and I welcome your opinions over at my guest blog with Pens Fatales
If you missed my comic book signing at the Goosetown Tavern, I'm doing another presentation of the artwork over at the Broadway Book Mall, 200 S Broadway, Denver, this next Sunday, June 6, at 3PM.
Have a great Memorial Day.
