When Grandma read Fifty Shades – A poem by Granddad.

Tall Tale Tuesdays are usually all about books, but this week, It’s all about this little ditty I found this morning. I think we can all use a good laugh to start the day. Enjoy!


The missus bought a paperback

down Shepton Mallet way.

I had a look inside her bag;

T’was Fifty shades of Grey.

Well, I just left her to it,

and at ten I went to bed.

An hour later she appeared;

the sight filled me with dread….

In her left she held a rope;

and in her right a whip!

She threw them down on the floor,

and then began to strip.

Well, Fifty years or so ago;

I might have had a peek.

But Mabel hasn’t weathered well

She’s eighty four next week.

Watching Mabel bump and grind,

could not have been much grimmer.

And then things went from bad to worse.

She toppled off her zimmer!

She struggled back upon her feet;

a couple of minutes later.

She put her teeth back in and said

“I am a Dominator!”

Now if you knew our Mabel.

you’d see just why…

#TallTaleTuesdays “Star Rider On The Razor’s Edge” The New Book By Heidi Skarie

Congratulations to my good friend Heidi Skarie for publishing her new book Star Rider On The Razor’s Edge! I have to admit Toemeka and Michio have a special place in my heart, as do all of the characters in Star Rider On The Razor’s Edge. I worked closely with Heidi as we edited this book and fell in love with the characters, (good guys and bad, and I don’t usually like the bad guys) the rich settings where the story takes place, and the science fiction of it all. Now I am proud to help spread the word about its publication to both Kindle and paperback.



Available for Kindle and paperback at

About the book:

Agent Toemeka Ganti, code-named Star Rider, lives on the edge.

Her latest spy mission is to overthrow General Bhandar, the despot of Jaipar, who’s being controlled by Samrat Condor, a mighty sorcerer and interplanetary conqueror. And Samrat Condor isn’t about to loosen his stranglehold on Jaipar.
Toemeka is only too aware of Condor: she remembers the time his space fleet destroyed her home planet, killing her family while she barely escaped with her life.
Toemeka must preserve her cover, despite secretly taking on many side operations that threaten to derail her primary mission. Her main work of creating a shield-destroying oscillator prototype is a key to winning the conflict. However, her overbearing boss, Commander Rochambeau disrupts her and pressures Toemeka daily with thinly veiled bullying tactics: either become his mistress or face certain death at the hands of Condor.

Michio Kimes, a handsome, spiritual warrior training to battle sorcery, seriously complicates Toemeka’s mission. Her only hope of surviving these tremendous odds lies with her trusted Coalition partner Erling Fenian and their rogue team, who band together with the local underground resistance in the fight to free the people of Jaipar and restore the rightful heir to the throne.

You can read the first chapter of Star Rider On The Razor’s Edge here. And don’t forget to sign up for Heidi’s newsletter while you’re there so you don’t miss any of the happenings around her place. She doesn’t send out a lot of them, but when you get one, it’s worth the wait.
