My life is: travel, family, friends, cooking, music, walking, exercising (step, kickboxing), bike riding, beach, reading, animals and nature.

I hope the day finds you well.
My friend's daughter does kick boxing.
I see how much you enjoyed the Hunger Games. I agree with you - it's a great book!
I’m searching for someone like you who appreciates the more original and interesting fiction that might be interested in trying out my novel trilogy "The DEAD LOOP". It is a unique psychological thriller mystery about a man that dies every single day but has no idea why.
My first Shelfari reader wrote on Amazon US: ‘one of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time... there is just something about the idea and the writing combined that from the very first few pages grabs you by the hand and tugs you along to see what comes next and fires your imagination to begin trying to figure out why it is happening.’
Part 1 on Kindle is only $1.25. It should also be on most formats such as Nook, Kobo and Apple too.
If it intrigues you at all and want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback.
Complete Trilogy edition (if you’re feeling bold!)

Steinbeck happens to one of my favourite authors too. Anything from Of Mice & Men to Travels with Charley. The setting of "In dubious battle" is communists working with migratory farm workers in California. I think that is one reason the book is not widely available in the US. I strongly suggest that you read this book.
