Story Updates


I finally finished The Killer Contract Agency rewrites, and now all I’m waiting for is to have en editor look at it, get the cover, and republish. It’s been a long journey with this book, and with it done I can finally work on other projects. I am typing up the first Scarlet book in the meantime, and I’ve written the second half and I’ll finish it so I can edit them both together and work on the third after the first and second are published. I know I’ve been promising those books for years. Life has gotten in the way more then once, and I find it hard to concentrate on writing with VCU and working part time at the same time. I need to take it more seriously. I want to quit retail part time so I can write full time instead I’ll need to be more on the ball with it.  I can’t sit there, and not write and publish the stories I want people to read. Hence why I have enough stories to write full time, and make my dream of it come true. I’m hopeful about it because it’s something I really want to do for the rest of my life. I’ll write a blog post about the story when it comes out, and put the links there too.
Until next time,

Jurassic World Review



Today, I saw the Jurassic World movie, and I enjoyed it. I’ve seen the movies before, and when I heard it was getting redone I knew I had to see it. I did notice they included a few features in the story that they did not have in the original like the Indominus Rex. I thought it was interesting how they created their own dinosaur, and I loved the role Chris Pratt played as the dinosaur it made it seem like the dinosaurs are more human. It was a good story, and at times I found myself on the edge of my seat hoping certain characters survive. At times I found myself wanting the dinosaurs to eat the bad guys, and I loved the ending too. It is a movie worth seeing again, and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for it. I know there will be a sequel since it did so well in theaters. I loved seeing the dinosaurs and what it would be like, and I loved the Gyroscopes added to the story.I loved the role of technology in it too. The story line is good, and it reminds me why I was meant to be a writer. I even loved how some characters changed from bad to good. I loved how the ending involved a last stand, and it was a good movie. It even threw in items from the old Jurassic Park. The ending left me wanting more dinosaurs, and I loved the possibilities that can come of it. 

Until next time,

MRE Review: Menu 7 Brisket Entree:


This will be the second MRE or Meal Ready to Eat Ive tried. There will be more reviews to follow since Im actually enjoying these reviews. It comes with a brisket entree which is gravy seasoned with beef brisket slices.  Crackers, biscuit, BBQ sauce, Cheese spread, Cocoa beverage powder.  Toffee cubes, Raspberry white chip cookie, a flameless ration heater. A spoon idea tea drink lemon flavored, salt, Towellette, toilet paper, chewing gum and a butter packet.  To eat the entree you have to put it in the bag with the flameless ration heater, and put water up to the fill line. Just let it heat up for ten to 15 minutes and enjoy. Or dont if you dont like the taste of them. I did put the salt and the butter in the entree.  Just dont put too much salt and the entree tastes good. I like it and it does not taste like it came out of a can either. Yum. The biscuit tastes like the weird wheat snack bread, but it does take some getting used to. Its a good meal for being out in the field and it would be good to use for camping  too and overall a fun thing Ive been doing lately.
*The second MRE I got which is the same one has garlic mashed potatoes in it, and those are some of the improvements they made to it. And a chocolate chip cookie with Twizzlers Nibs.For more info on mres go to MREInfo.com. 

Until next time,

MRE Research or Meals Ready to Eat:


For my writing research it led me to find out as much as I can about the military. When doing research you have to observe take notes and even do what they do. The research led me to research MREs which are military rations they give troops going into battle. It’s hard to get your hands on them unless you use Ebay or know someone in the military. They can last for a while too. This one is menu 6 Beef Roast with Vegetables. They come with an entrée and a side dish this one is called Cherry Blueberry Cobbler with the Beef and Roast Vegetables as the entrée. It comes with a cocoa beverage powder bag. A spoon, wheat snack bread, chocolate chip cookie, hot beverage bag, flameless ration heater (just add water for the reaction), Salt, Splenda, coffee, creamer, moist towlette and toilet paper. And lastly is the chewing gum which is a mild laxative. It even comes with the chocolate peanut spread to put on the wheat cracker. After heating the main course by following the instructions using the heater. I tasted the entrée which is not too bad, but it did taste like it came out of a can. When I added the seasonings it tasted better, and not too bad. The Cherry Blueberry cobbler did not taste that bad either, and even the cat loved the roast and begged for more. The wheat snack bread just tastes like bread and when the spread is added it tastes like a piece of bread with chocolate and peanut butter. Overall not too bad of a meal for being on the field, and definitely nothing fancy. Just one of the fun facts to use in research for my stories.

If you have had an mre tell me about your experiences with them and which ones you’ve tried?

Until next time,
