Writestream Tuesday: Science Fiction Author Sabrina Chase


Although I usually leave the science fiction genre to our Writestream host S. Evan Townsend and his Speculative Fiction Cantina, on Tuesday, August 4 at 1 p.m. Eastern, I’ll welcome author Sabrina Chase to the show:

By day I am a mild-mannered software developer, making the world a better place for librarians. But when the sun goes down, I make stuff up for fun and profit.

My background is in physics, where I got to play with killer lasers and synchrotrons. I live in the Pacific Northwest and am constantly supervised in my writing by two cats. If I did something wrong, they probably warned me about it.

Book Review: ‘Getting Life’ by Michael Morton


Posted on Amazon.com:

While reading this powerful, gut-wrenching memoir of an an innocent man’s 25-year incarceration, I had to keep reminding myself that this happened in the United States of America, where citizens are innocent until proven guilty and entitled to a fair trial by jury. At least, that’s how the justice system is supposed to work. For Michael Morton, inadvertently caught up in the politics of the “big fish in a small town” mentality of local law enforcement in the aftermath of his wife’s brutal murder, neither of these rights were upheld.

Getting Life not only provides valuable insight into human nature — and the dire consequences of the improper stewardship of power when in the hands of corrupt men — it also illustrates the unbreakable bonds of faith, determination, and persistence individuals are capable of expressing even under the most horrific circumstances. The truth eventually set Michael Morton free from the bondage of prison, thanks to his unwavering faith in God, passion for justice, and stalwart support system including family, friends, and a team of attorneys who never gave up.

Remarkably, throughout his painful, harrowing experience (told in the first person narrative), the author never comes across as embittered or angry. As a reader and an American citizen, I certainly felt outrage and disgust toward all of those involved in railroading this grieving husband and devoted father and robbing him of 25 years of his life, while allowing the real killer to roam free. But instead of letting hatred and anger to consume him, Morton channels his energy into ensuring that what happened to him will not happen to another innocent person. It’s a testament to his commitment to God and the strength of his character.

Most of all, Getting Life will remind you to give thanks for all of life’s blessings, big and small. A highly recommended read!

About six months ago, Lisa and I interviewed Ava Aston, founder of Glowosity on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss. During the show, Lisa actually ordered several products, with the promise of bringing Ava back on to discuss her experience with them.

Prior to last night’s episode, Lisa had been raving repeatedly about her results with the Glowosity products nearly every time we talked. Since then, I’ve ordered my own and am eagerly awaiting my shipment this week.
