Coming in January...

In the beginning were the words. And the words were long. Well…not the words themselves, but the collection of words.

That collection of words was my novel Dating Groucho Marx. It was where Dan Thompson made his first appearance. But only a few people have ever seen it, since it hasn't been published yet.

Well, after about 18 or so short stories in the Dan Thompson canon, I've decided that it's time to get the original work out there. So in January Dating Groucho Marx will be available digitally through both and Barnes and Noble.

I've got a lot of work ahead of me as I go through the original and edit and rewrite some passages. But not to worry, you'll still get your short story every month.

When Irish Ears Are Listening...

Faith and begorrah! Sometimes Dan just doesn't know when to shut up. Actually, that's not really the problem, after all, all he really did was raise his eyebrow and say "oh" when his friends Fiona and Sam announced their wedding plans. 

Actually, let me correct that, it should be when his friends Fiona Colleen Campbell Quinn Doyle Ryan Byrne Finneran O’Malley and Sam DeVito announced their wedding plans. And that one eyebrow and that one "oh" put a whole new spin on an issue that had supposedly already been settled.

But if I tell you any more, I'll give away the story, and I wouldn't want to be doing that, now would I?

Oh, and if you don't know about Uncle Julius, ask Bing Crosby.
