Writer since I was a kid, dad to five children and four in-law children, grandpa to five grandchildren, and widower since 2021, I am here to spend time with the friends I have made, and those I've yet to make.
Moonlaker007: Just touching base with my Wire friends: my youngest daughter has moved in to help take care of me. For the first time in my adult life, I have a real pet (not just my invisible T-Rex named Spot). For the sake of my little granddaughter, we have a cat. We had a rough first night together when I mistakenly believed that a fish filet was mine. Since that time, she does her thing, I do mine, and she spends her time with the daughter and granddaughter, lol.
Apparently with ALS, there is a rapid weight loss program. When my wife passed in October of 2021, I was tipping the scale at 410 lbs. I’m now around 250. Gotta be better weight loss plans, but it is effective. So there’s that - makes it easier as I scoot about the house with my walker.
Writing is somewhat of a challenge as I’m reduced to one finger hunt n peck as my dexterity is reduced. Not sure that’s such a loss, with the underwhelming response to Roundabout Time, lol.
I do hope to share the story of what I've come to see as my legacy (next to five children and their families, of course) which is the journey from being a victim to overcoming that into victory.
It took me decades to discover where I went wrong with the way I dealt with what I call “soul storms” or traumatic experiences that rock us to the core of who we are, changing us forever. Gonna stop discussing that here, before I write the book, lol. I think y’all get the gist of it.
Y’all drop a line or two and let me know what’s happening in your world! Miss y’all, think of you often!
Moonlaker007, aka Steve.

Moonlaker007: Hey y'all, have a couple of things to share here:
First, I have been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). This gives me a limited time to complete my book projects. It gives me almost zero time to promote them. I am currently working on a book that I hope to be my legacy, then of course there is the sequel to Roundabout Time.
Speaking of Roundabout Time, the first one has a Version Two, which is a professionally polished version that I hope you all will promote on your pages and any and all social media you have. Word of mouth is pretty much going to be all the promotion these books will receive.
To find Version Two of the first Roundabout Time, just go to Roundabout Time on Amazon. It is listed with the old, self edited version.
As far as Roundabout Time 2, I hope to be able to complete that after completing my current project.
I am trying to stay focused on the job at hand, and living each day to it's fullest, and not on any of the negative aspects of the situation which would be easy to give in to, should I lose focus.
I would greatly appreciate you all promoting Roundabout Time (Version 2) everywhere you can. Honestly, I would love to leave my children, who have been overwhelmingly supportive, with a financial legacy rather than liability.
Thank you all for your understanding and support.

Moonlaker007: Just wanted to say hi to all my friends here, let you know that even when I'm not here, I still think about y'all, remember so many crazy and fun conversations, and know that there will be more. Been dealing with the flu for a few weeks, hopefully I will be up and around again soon!
Moonlaker007: Just a reminder for those of you that haven’t ordered your copy yet - still available at Amazon! Go ahead, order your copy today!
Even if you don’t wanna read it, at 517 pages, it can be used to level out a piece of furniture with a broken leg.
No fly swatter handy? I promise you this book will do the trick!
Makes a nice table for children’s plates, while they’re watching tv or playing video games on the floor.
Height challenged and miss the days of phone books to sit on? Here’s your book!

Moonlaker007: That's not her collection, but my mom has a collection larger than pictured! At one time, she had shelving that went around her house, all lined with dolls. Everywhere you moved, they watched. There was no sleeping in a house where dozens of eyes watched you...
