Storm Force, by Meredith Fletcher, is a perfect vacation read. The author was kind enough to send me a copy, and I finished it over the course of just a few hours.
Kate Garrett is a wilderness guide in Florida. But an impending, disastrous hurricane is the least of her worries. Her ex-husband has sent their children to stay with her for a while, but someone seems to be following them. Escaped convicts capture Kate and use her to guide them to a hidden stash of money. One of the men claims to be an undercover FBI agent. But can she trust him? Especially, when her children’s safety is at risk?
With colorful imagery and a strong heroine, Storm Force is a fun, fast-paced action/adventure story with heart. And a touch of romance. I’ll definitely be looking forward to getting my hands on more books by Meredith Fletcher.
I can’t believe that tomorrow will be my last full day of vacation here in sunny California. Time has flown by. I’ve been much busier than I thought I’d be. I’ve only read 3 and a half books. And 2 of those were on the flight out here.
Finally, I’ve gotten my laptop plugged into the internet!
I’m having a great time.. keeping busy..
I still need to scan a couple photos in, but here are a couple from my digital camera. They’re from Universal City Walk.
I’ll post photos from the con soon!
Hope you all are having a great week too…
And here’s my new favorite comic shop:
From Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit guest list:
He is best known for his role on the original Star Trek as Sulu. And most recently guest starred on the hit show Heroes, as Hiro’s father.
George’s acting career has spanned five decades. It began in the summer of 1957, between his freshman and sophomore years at the University of California at Berkeley, when George answered a newspaper advertisement placed by a company casting voices for a motion picture. The film was Rodan, a Japanese science-fiction classic about a prehistoric creature terrorizing Tokyo. In a sound stage on the MGM lot in Culver City, Calif., George dubbed the original Japanese lines into English, creating distinct voices for eight characters.
I was quite upset to hear that Colin Ferguson, star of SciFi Channel’s Eureka wouldn’t be attending as advertised. But there are so many other great media guests scheduled at Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit that I’ll still enjoy the convention.
The next person I’m most excited to see is James Marsters. Marsters, of course, is most well-known for his role as Spike in the cult show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And more recently, he played Super-nemesis Brainiac on the CW’s Smallville. He’ll be the only actor here every day of the con.
No Thursday Thirteen this week.
As of Thursday at 4:30am, I’ll be on my way to California!
… For Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit and a little fun in the sun.
I plan on bringing my laptop to upload photos from the convention each night, but who knows what the internet connection will be like. So, just to make sure the site doesn’t die during the 10 days that I’m gone… I’ll be setting articles on the different actors/actresses that will be at the con, to post on the days I can’t get online.
