DAMN THAT STORK is for those people who look at the charming, perfect babies in baby magazines and want to scream because that is not their life. The book is a collection of brief, hilarious vignettes and stories, just the right length for a harried parent in need of a laugh. This book will wholly engage those who have been through the experience of parenting young children, as well as those preparing for that journey.

Return to Casa Grande is the story of Blaze Hazelwood, a former “household name” actor who is searching for relevance in an entertainment environment that is remarkably different from what it was in his heyday.
