If I Had A Hammer

If I had a hammer, this is the warning I'd hammer out. If I had a good lawyer (or a million bucks), I'd require every website that offers my books to place this warning on that particular detail page. The closest I ever came to writing anything that could even remotely be construed as a paranormal romance is Little Green Man from Mars, the sixth full-length science fiction thriller I wrote back in 2006.

In Little Green Man from Mars, the protagonist falls in love with a woman who is from the afterlife. But — and this is a very big but — she's a human being. An "ascended" human being from another planet but a human being nonetheless. She's not a ghost or a ghoul or — gimme a break — a goddamn vampire. Plus, their brief romance is a minor element in that story, way down the list from the hard science fiction elements, the biblical "revelation prophecy", the sci-fi twist I gave that prophecy, the other religious, historical and philosophical themes, and the action sequences that play out in the eternal battle between good and evil. That's the real story.

Yeah, if I had a hammer.
