No, I don't ever stop writing. After polishing off the last few edits for Bistro Afterlife and mashing 'publish' on Amazon KDP (followed by bickering with their auto-check system over font size and DPI), I turned right around and started picking through the multitude of book ideas I have lying...

Villains... in love?

The Great Bob Stansbury Reviewed
Four-Star Review from "Radio Lab Listener": "Not The Great American novel or even a Hugo or Nebula Award-winning novel, but definitely creative and thought-provoking! It takes rather playful liberties with fantasy-fairytale plots to raise some quite interesting questions about human nature. Still, the story is still fun, suspenseful, and keeps...
