Last year I had a heck of a good time as a guest on the Facebook Live / Podcast The OSI Files, devoted to all things Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. These two TV programs pioneered SF and superhero stories decades before it was practical. Both shows had a tremendous impact on little boy RJ, and I’m still an unabashed fan.
After my one-off appearance in December 2018, circumstances worked out a year later that I guest-starred three times in rapid succession in January and February 2020 (weellll…. rapid for me, though multi-shows-per-week host John S Drew may be having a good laugh at this comment). Now that those shows are out there, it’s time to recap and share all the Facebook Live links in a single easy-to-find blog post. Continue reading

The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman were among my favorite shows as a kid. Certainly, they were the most successful SF /Superhero shows in an era when SF and superheroes had very little success on TV (I still remember so many favorite shows disappearing after a season, one after the other, but I digress). So I was excited in December of 2018 to appear on the Facebook Live / Podcast program The OSI Files with co-hosts John S. Drew and Jerry Lange. Not only could I let my Bionic nerd flag fly, but also discuss my first ever TV star crush Farrah Fawcett (because I was a boy and it was 1976, and it was kind of the law).
I had a heck of a lot of fun. You can read all about my appearance and view it in full here.
The OSI Files have continued to air new episodes roughly in order of the original run. So now we’re coming back to the next Farrah appearance, so I’ve been invited back to discuss The Golden Pharaoh on…*screech*
Okay, hold that thought. Continue reading

Or, What’s in the Box?
First of all, to celebrate the audiobook release of Haunting Obsession, we’re throwing a big party on Facebook all day on Monday, October 21. I’ve been teasing “What’s in the Box?” on my facebook feed all week, which leads to this post. During the party (going on today if you are seeing this the day it goes live) we’ll also reveal some amazing new videos, promotions, share some favorite classic Maxine Marie blogs, and so much more. And a lot of people are going to leave with a FREE DOWNLOAD CODE to listen to the incredible Haunting Obsession audiobook read by Danielle Muething! To join the party room event page, click this link!
Secondly, Monday will mark the first day a brand new Haunting Obsession product will be available, strictly through me, at my table during appearances OR when you order books from me through this link. Which brings me back to the box. So…
Introducing the Haunting Obsession Elegant Paper Dolls featuring the sexy ghost Hollywood icon Maxine Marie and the novdlla’s co-protagonist Loretta Stevens, withthree pages of awesome outfits. The book is eye-popping full color with a cardstock front and back cover and glossy color page insides. All layouts and designs are created by my amazing CGI artist Nell Willams. So that’s:
- Both paperdolls on the cardstock back cover
- A cardstock front cover displaying most outfits, which can be signed, separated and framed if you use the book for its intended purpose (essentially, destroying it in the process).
- Two pages of Maxine Marie outfits
- One page of Loretta Stevens outfits
