I’m a bit stunned and excited to report that the screenplay for The Chronocar: An Urban Adventure In Time is one of 10 finalists in Stage32’s Diversity Springboard Screenwriting Contest.  Just being a finalist could lead to a virtual foot in the door. Check out the site to see just what a big deal this could be. At least I think so…


Great review of Edge Of Perception audiobook


“Part ghost story, part futuristic science fiction with a back to the future vibe, part romance with a bit of delightful heat, wholly engrossing and entertaining with believable, easy flowing, and most of all authentic narration, Edge of Perception is a well written story with delightfully unique characters and a clear well defined plot that kept me glued to my headphones from start to finish! And that ending? Not a dry eye in this house! I loved it! Thank you Steve Bellinger for a delightful evening! Five fabulous stars! I wish I could give so many more!”

A fascinating and different sort of review of The Chronocar
by P. Englsh Literature’s Peter Okonkwo


The Chronocar on film?

A couple of years ago, Donna met a young man who had some connection to a streaming media company.  She mentioned my novel and the guy asked, “does he have a screenplay?”  That was motivation enough. I did some research, got a book and downloaded software and wrote a screenplay based on The Chronocar.  A few months ago, I entered it into an online competition.  Learned late November 2021 that my script was one of the quarterfinalists. Check the link below. Yes, this could be a big deal.

The theme is creativity later in life. Lots of fun, advice and laughs!

Audiobook in production!

The Chronocar audiobook was performed by Earl Sewell.  I say performed because he did more than just read the story. He brought the characters to life.
I am happy to say that Earl has agreed to do the audiobook version of Time Waits For No One. He was gracious enough to give us a little sample of his work. You can see him in action below.  We’ll share more snippets in the future!
