Interview with Lou Diamond Phillips

I'm back as the Guest Host for Joy on Paper for a one-hour interview with Golden-Globe nominated actor Lou Diamond Phillips. If you haven't read his fantastic novel THE TINDERBOX: SOLDIER OF INDIRA, get your copy right away because you are going to love this book!

Author Appearances

Local Authors Bria Burton and Sheila McNaughton

Visit my booth on Beach Blvd South in Gulfport, FL, where author Sheila McNaughton and I will be signing our books. We'd love to meet you and chat! And I will probably ask to pet your adorable dog (or cat. It's a pet-friendly outdoor market).

Who Is Cricket the AI?

Software developer Dora has created the world's most advanced Artificial Intelligence hologram called Aya. Intended to be an avatar who elevates the user in social media spheres, the testing phase proves that the proverbial off switch doesn't apply to genuine AI. 

Speculative Stories to Make You Laugh

(we hope)

This is my first humor story, and in honor of that, I've been dabbling in some humor on social media.

Because my story is about artificial intelligence, I decided to create an avatar on Facebook who would "become" self-aware and take over (all in fun--it's not a real thing...yet). You can visit my FB page HERE. I also interviewed my robot vacuum on Youtube.
