Comment by Michael Phelps yesterday

David Janssen Our Conversations

ACTOR LES LANNOM, a close friend and Co-Star with DAVID JANSSEN in six episodes of 'HARRY O', posted his Review on Barnes&Noble:

    "I got acquainted with Mike Phelps when he made a comment regarding an exchange I had with some of my Facebook friends.  It seems he just happened to recognize my name in association with David and the work we did on 'Harry O'.  I was very pleased to learn that he had been friends with David, whom I have always felt was not only my friend, but my mentor as well.  Mike's and my relationship moved from the written to the spoken word rather quickly.  As I once said, "If I'd wanted to be a writer, I'd have chosen a very different career."  I found that our conversation began to fill in the blanks in my own knowledge of David, and also re-affirmed my own sense of who David Janssen was.  I ordered both biographies long before they were released and spent almost every free moment devouring them when they finally arrived.  I wasn't all that sure what to expect.  After all, David left us a long time ago, and I wasn't really expecting Mike's memories to be as clear-cut and vivid as they turned out to be.  I'm certain that absolutely all of David's dialogue in these rememebred conversations weren't verbatim.  That would have been an impossibility to achieve, unless all of those conversations were recorded.  What impressesd me is the flavor and cadence of the writing.  They were all David.  It was a joy to read, and brought back so many memories of my own.  As I neared the end of the second volume, I dreaded reaching the end.  For me it was like watching the end of a movie about the Titanic.  I knew what was coming, and I keenly remember when a receptionist friend called me from Warner Bros. to tell me of David's death.  This is probably a lousy book review, but I'd like everyone to know that I found Mike's memories of and portrayals of the man who was David Janssen to be spot on in every respect.  He was one of the warmest and most generous Stars I ever had the privilege to work with and get to know on a personal level.  I will always be in his debt and proud to have walked in his shadow for a little while.  Those are the bright warm colors of Mike Phelps' portrait of David Janssen, and the picture he has painted is the guy I knew.  Thank you, Mike.  I'm glad to have made your acquaintance."   - - - LES LANNOM ("Lester Hodges" in 'HARRY O'),

My Keeper of La Tecla (The Key) series is an Urban Fantasy trilogy with vampires, werewolves, magic, humor, adventure, dragons and more. 

Book 2 of the series is also available for pre-order and I'm currently looking for reviews for both book 1 and 2 so if you're interested in reviewing them, please send me an email at:

In return, I'd be more than happy to exchange a review if it fits in the same genre. But please, NO EROTICA or SAME SEX GENDER THEMES! I will not read those.

Review Update! DONUM

DONUMDONUM
By: Alexandra Lane
My rating: ★★★☆☆

( I received this book free form the Author in exchange for my honest review. )

I wanted to like this book, I had high hopes but it wasn’t for me.

I found it slow going; nothing of major important happens until the last 15% the story. The other 85% was background filler. Its goes through Teal’s life from birth to teenager. I believe that could have been condensed down into the first two or three chapters. For me it was too drawn out. In truth from the synopsis I had the image that the story was going to pick up right when Teal was 16 or 17. That he was going to be fighting this evil that moved into his town, as in he was already in the town when the darkness arrives. So the start of the book threw me for a loop. .

by David Russell author of Self's Blossom.

25-6-2015.

"This monumental work, really breaks down literary categories in the quest for truth. The Lost Chronicles of Sophia are the 'Gospel' of Mary Magdalene, expressing Goddess values, apparently destroyed when fanatical Christians wrecked the library of Alexandra, terrified of the claim that Christ's ...true teaching was communicated to Mary Magdalene, rather than to his Disciples, and that Mary Magdalene was his lover. The novel is concerned with the rediscovery of this book, its resuscitation and application of its fundamental lessons - to replace Patriarchal tyranny with Matriarchal truth.

Involved in the physical, and metaphysical quest for the Gnostic truth of this book is a 'star-studded' mass of world mythological entities . . . Greek, Nordic . . ."

"There is tension between the feminists' pacifist ideals and the possible need for force to eliminate the patriarchy. Many of the women were mistreated, and longed to 'get one back' on their abusers. Their number includes Hecate, who embraces darkness and evil, but has right on her side because of her past suffering, just as, in Dualism, a Snake can be a Saviour, and the Devil God's alter ego. All the 'godly' characters have 'flawed mortal' characteristics which make them convincing. Dualism/contrariety is prominent in the main characters: "I am everywhere loved and adored, and everywhere condemned and despised . . . formless yet with infinite variegated forms".

"The author reflects on 'cyclic time'; there is an angel 'walking backwards into the future'. "Thousands of years of history had already happened, were yet to happen and were happening." Mooniana oscillates mythological antiquity and contemporary life - world politics - and today's popular culture - including pop stars and Bollywood cinema, linking the occult to the everyday. The characters also drift out of, and into, their own bodies. As a 'bridge, it focuses on fashionable 'New Age' cults, including a 'free school' - the Albatross Boarding School, as well as a hippie commune and an experimental theatre in Verona - featuring a wide video screen plus music, dance and drama events which melt into spiritual/mythical areas."

"There are two parallel love stories: Joanne Voegrin, a harpist, becomes obsessed with her teacher, Paul Vallidin, while Christiane Wulff develops a fascination for Oriental Studies professor Franz Abel. Each woman holds her beloved in of awe, whilst feeling a degree of irritation with their seeming pedantry and pomposity. Both couples oscillate between their mundane personalities and their mythical entities - Joanne became the mystical Sophia."
