The night’s reader will be Kevin T. Boekhoff.  Kevin is the author of I Forgot That I Remembered, a humorous look at his life with Parkinson’s disease,  Just Me: Humorous, Helpful and Odd, which consists of stories from throughout his life, and his gospel ventriloquism book, I Know What You Know, Adventures in Gospel Ventriloquism, featuring Youtube links to the scripts in the book. He also writes a daily devotion called “Tugs & Nudges” and a series of ventriloquism “pictoons.”

He has won several awards at Humorpress.com and one at the Storyteller. 

He currently challenges himself with ventriloquism. This includes the making of characters, writing of skits and performing them. He says this helps him fight Parkinson’s by doing things he enjoys.

Personal Update. 

Finally sitting down to write on my sci-fi novel.  Working title:  Jacob’s Ladder.  It’s about an astrophysicist who invents a teleporter and teleports to a planet, where finds himself caught up in a revolution.    Inventing an alien culture is an interesting challenge.  I think about the plot almost constantly, but seldom find time to jot anything down.   Working now at Starbucks on the plot outline.

“Author has a wonderful ability to develop the characters using few words. Great foreshadowing to build suspense. And then a really outstanding twist at the end that left me smiling.”

“This novelette is a quick and very entertaining read. It opened with a grabber (“Tell me again whey we have to kill this guy…”) and kept pulling me in from there. Frank Martinez is a cop trying to recover from a shooting incident in solitude on an island off the Texas gulf coast. T.J. and Benny are the bad guys. Their hunt and chase on the small island kept me in suspense. It ends with a surprise twist. Slattery proves here he is a good storyteller.”
