In the late 1940's, radio was giving way to television. As radio slowly moved out of its Golden Age, one show tried something new. For 5 years "That New Radio Show" entertained and shocked its audeince with a mix of humor, satire and irrelevance that had never been tried before. What was it like behind the scenes?

The Stories

I also have a collection of short stories written as an  experiment, they are each exactly one hundred words long - I will do another block of them soon, since they seem to get a very nice response.

There are currently four Janus Trelane novels finished, and the fifth is currently being written. The new chapters are available by signing up for the Solitaire Rose Writings List. The first four have been available on the GEnie computer service, but GEnie is about as active as a Gary Coleman fan club meeting, so they are here. I am currently in the process of shipping them to various publishing houses and agents for a whole new set of rejection slips. If you’d like to read a sample chapter of each of them, all you have to do is click on the title.


Called to the city he left years ago, Janus Trelane finds himself working with a police detective who thinks that he’s a con artist trying to track down a killer. Can Janus discover who or what is doing before the city goes to hell? Literally.

Trouble At Home

A five year old girl is missing, and Janus Trelane has been called in by the local police to find her and her abductor. What starts as a missing child case quickly becomes far more deadly as Janus Trelane find himself trying to stop an ancient evil that wants to use him as a pawn.

Pocketful of Broken Mirrors

After a routine investigation in California, Janus Trelane finds himself in a mental ward with his memory wiped cleans. Have all of his adventures been part of a massive paranoid delusion, or is Janus at the mercy of a foe who can destroy more than just his memory?


The editor of the Midnight Star tabloid which chronicles Janus’s adventures is accused of the worst crime a father can commit. However, when Janus investigates, he discovers that the horrors of child abuse are just the tip of the iceberg. Can Janus track down an abuser who has stayed hidden in plain sight for over 150 years before he strikes again?

This is the one currently being written. So if you want to read the whole thing, you'll have to patient. A brutal murder in the same alley Janus Trelane’s finacee was killed eight years ago is the first step in the plan of John Wyddian, the First Of The Vampires. Is he out to destroy Janus or does he have something worse in mind? In order to stop his plan, Janus must unravel the history of Wyddian before he himself become as part of it.
