GENRE: Sci-fi (soft)





After 27 years as a newspaper man, Peter Anderson’s career is slipping away, at least it was, until he stumbled upon the story of a lifetime. Sent to do a fluff piece about lights in the night sky over Arizona, he discovers far more than he ever expected when he comes upon a mysterious young woman held prisoner in a basement. After helping her to escape, she disappears before he can learn the truth about who she is or where she came from. His search for her leads him back to the lights in the sky and leaves him with more questions than answers. The only thing he knows for certain . . . the only thing he can count on are the two words offered repeatedly by his friend and guide . . . “IS BELT.”







I blinked in disbelief, too stunned to speak.


Standing in front of me, dressed in black jeans, a dark blue tee shirt with a picture of Bob Marley and a backward baseball cap was a small, no more than 5′ 2″, twenty something, black man.


“Hi. I’m Pete,” I said, offering my hand.


“Ahh, is sad story. Bob’s cousin not speak English,” Bob said pushing my hand away.


“Awhhh,” the little man breathed hoarsely, turning away, his arms swung loosely in response.


“Bob, he just said dude to me when he came in,” I said, pointing an insistent finger at the little man.


“He tries, broken English not so good. Is Fred,” he answered, spinning his hand playfully in the air, pointing, draping a large, affectionate arm over the man’s shoulder.


“Fred… your Russian cousin?”


“Da,” he answered simply without blinking.


“Bob… he just spoke to me and it wasn’t Russian,” I protested.


“Ahh, Bob’s friend generous, not make Bob’s cousin self-conscious. You good man, but Fred speaks no English,” he argued, folding his arms.


“Ahhh, damn it, Bob. You promised me… you said I could talk this time. Shit man,” Fred cursed in a raspy whisper, stomping his foot, turning away.


“Nyet, nyet,” Bob scolded, grabbing Fred. He began to speak Russian, shaking his finger in the other man’s face.


Fred’s shoulders slumped. His head swung loosely from side to side, avoiding Bob’s gaze.


“Da,” he said dully, turning in my direction once more.








AUTHOR Bio and Links:


I was raised pretty much the same as everyone else… devoted mother, strict father and all the imaginary friends I could conjure. Not that I wasn’t friendly, I just wasn’t “people orientated”. Maybe I lived in my head way more than I should have, maybe not. I liked machines more than people, at least I did until I met my wife.


The first thing I can remember writing was for her. For the life of me I can’t remember what it was about… something about dust bunnies under the bed and monsters in my closet. It must have been pretty good because she married me shortly after that. I spent a good number of years after inventing games and prototypes for a variety of ideas before I got back to writing.


It wasn’t a deliberate conscious thought, it was more of a stepping stone. My wife and I had joined a dream interpret group and we were encouraged to write down our dreams as they occurred. “Be as detailed as you can,” we were told.


I was thrilled. If there is one thing I enjoy it’s making people believe me and I like to exaggerate. Not a big exaggeration or an outright lie mine you, just a little step out of sync, just enough so you couldn’t be sure if it were true or not. When I write, I always write with the effort of “it could happen” very much in mind and nothing, I guarantee you, nothing, makes me happier.

    If you had a chance for a “do-over” in life, what would you do differently?

      Hi Mai… There are things I did in my youth that I now have come to regret. I could have been a better person for all involved but was more focused on myself and what I wanted. If I could… knowing what I know now… I never would have taken that path.
