About Me

I started this blog to showcase my stories. I’ll occasionally add a rant or two about something that gets under my skin, but I’m trying to keep that to a minimum. I’ve been writing on the internet for several years under the name BadKarma00, hence the name of the blog.

I’ve just made my first story, Odd Billy Todd, available on Amazon Kindle. It’s a very painful process that requires long hours in the chair. . . no, wait, that’s a root canal.

Anyway, it was a learning experience to say the least. Now that I know how, though, I’ll be offering more of my complete stories on Amazon as days go by.

Some content, however, like the Bonespear Tales, will only be available here.

Thanks for dropping by,

    Somehow, i found YOU….asked to”see”what path to follow as i find my way on this unexpected journey. Never expected to find the personality and fun with the insight that i need to glean along the way. Truth be told, i feel so far behind…running to catch up can tire one out and finding gems of joy along the way, well, it makes me do a happy dance! Thanks!

  4. Have now read Parno’sCompany, Odd Billy and Roland back to back awesome work, and thank you very much

    Well, I started reading on a Kindle about 4 years ago. I now own 4 all filled with books, but not just any books. My quest was to read good FREE books. Now as you know most are series, first one free buy the rest. So very few were worth it. Your books are worth it, Started with Odd Billy and then went to a short, the kid, and then on to Roland. I just had to stop and tell you how much I like your style. And I like your attitude. If I don’t take care of me no one will, known that a long long time…….very rarely do I buy the “rest”, I will buy all you have and wait for more.

    • I sincerely appreciate that, and that you took the time to tell me so. You’re the people I ‘work’ for ๐Ÿ™‚ If I’m not entertaining you, I’m not doing my job, so to speak.

      Thank you again for your kind words.



  6. Love your books! Your style of writing draws a reader in and you just don’t want to stop reading. Started with Tammy and Ringo and went from there. Just finished Parno’s Company. I hope the next book in that trilogy is coming soon. Thank you for the good reading.

    • Thank you! I appreciate that very much. I am working on the second Parno novel right now. I don’t have a projected release date as yet, but it will be as soon as possible so long as I can do it justice!

      I am very glad you enjoyed the others and thanks again for letting me know!


      • Love your books. Reading Parbo series now. You really need a competent editor…

    I just read Fire From the Sky and downloaded
    Odd Billy Todd and Roland and I can’t wait to see the next book in the Sanders series. I love your writing!! When will the next Sanders book be out?

  9. Big fan of Fire From The Sky. Really enjoy your subtle writing style and how you don’t feel the need to explain every little nuance. I hate to give you a compliment sandwich, but the typos were a bit distracting. Other than that, I really enjoyed your book & I’m looking forward to the next one in the series.

    Fire in the sky is one of the best books I have read in a long while and I read about 200 a year! I can’t wait for the next in the series.

    • Thanks very much! I appreciate that and I’m glad you enjoyed it! Book Two is called Brotherhood of Fire and is with the publisher now. When we know the release date I will post it here!

    Just found you through Kindle Unlimited and Fire From the Sky, Brotherhood of Fire. I have thoroughly enjoyed both books and I look forward to exploring your other creations. I can’t wait for another in the Fire series. Soon, I hope?

  12. Hi I just finished Fire books and I loved them. I read Billy Todd at least 5 times so far and will read it again. I also loved the kid have read it several times. recently I read Tammy and Ringo and I wondered if you were going to write another one ? thanks for a enjoyable reads.

    • I do plan to continue the Tammy and Ringo story at some point and already have a lot of the work done. That book is written to be the first in a series called “Rabid”. Sort of a zombie story with the twist that they aren’t actually zombies, but also are beyond saving with what is known at the moment. Tammy and Ringo won’t always be the center or main character but theyh will play a primary role later on. All this of course presumes I should live so long as to be able to write all this ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m glad you’ve enjoyed Billy so much. Thank you for letting me know!


  13. N.C., I have read “Fire from the sky” & “Fire – Brotherhood”. Waiting anxiously for book #3 due out in December, I believe. As you request, I’ve posted a review on Amazon (Five Stars), having thoroughly enjoyed the books.

    I’m currently 3/4 of the way through “Odd Billy Todd” and finding it as enjoyable as “Fire”. Although I have to admit the first portion of the book was making me impatient as you set the tone for Billy and how he was dealing with his “issues”. I was pleasantly surprised when he was lucky enough to rescue Rhonda and start a “normal” relationship with a woman.

    Having grown up in the Southeastern U.S. I am very comfortable with your writing style as it relates to the local idiosyncrasies of the dialects. I find your characters to be well developed and mature as they progress through a world gone to Hell in a basket, it seems the are able to make the tough decisions and act on them to keep themselves and their loved ones safe. I find that approach to survival a more realistic one than some authors portray.

    Keep up the great work. I’ll be working my way through your other books as time allows.

    • Billy does develop slowly but it was actually just a short story to begin with. It ended originally where Billy got himself a dog. From there on was added in, and the story just kept growing. It was hard to write sometimes because I kept trying to put myself in his shoes and think like he would. That was one of the things that made it progress slowly was the detail Billy thinks in. He can’t afford to miss anything. Pretty much like me, there. If I do miss something, then I have to start all over, ๐Ÿ˜€

      For Fire #3, yes it is my goal to have it available before Christmas. I don’t know that I can do it, but I’m working on it. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Fire so much, and I hope you enjoy the rest as well. Thanks for letting me know you liked them!

    Just finished Firestorm, and loved it…like I do all your books. Do you have s timeframe for when “Home Fires?” might be released? I’m really looking forward to reading it!

    • I’m sorry but I’m not allowed to speculate on release dates due to some earlier difficulty with that. I can say that I’m working on it and that it’s coming along pretty well so far. I’m glad you enjoyed FIrestorm, and will do my best to make Home Fires just as enjoyable. Thanks!

        No problem. Understand completely. Thanks for your prompt reply, and I’ll look forward to the new novel, whenever it’s out. Have a great 4th.
