TV appearance – Off the Shelf

It was my privilege to appear recently on the public TV show Off the Shelf with host Veronica Andrews. This half-hour show, produced by Dana Frazao, has previously attracted authors like Nicholas Sparks and Israeli poet Admiel Kosman.  I had a great time talking about Cracking the Ice.

You can watch it online here.

Three new short stories available

Three humorous short stories of mine are now available in all the leading e-book formats.  They are each available as lead titles with the other two included as bonus stories.

Can Devin Patrick O’Donnell spend St. Patrick’s Day barhopping with a leprechaun without so much as touching a drop of the spirits? The leprechaun has offered a pot of gold. How hard can it be?

At a small town casino in Oregon, Icepick Louie tells all the bumpkins how minor league they are. He bets twenty large they can’t name a thing that can top its counterpart back in Boston. Since people who accept challenges from Icepick Louie often wind up with busted kneecaps, he can barely control his laughter when a scrawny geek with thick glasses speaks up and proposes Flo’s clam chowder.

Olivia loves her books. They fill every shelf, are stacked high on every floor, and have taken over every room. Her boyfriend Charlie can hardly see the TV. And oh yeah, Olivia would rather read than talk to him. What’s Charlie to do? Give her an ultimatum? She can pick him or the books? Probably not a good idea.
