In the quiet town of Alhambra, Indie Author Day is taking place in Reese Hall in the Civic Center Library! Tyler leads a panel with independent authors S.A. Gibson, Petrea Burchard, Michael Kogge, and past guest, Michael Tanner!
“I’m a writer, audiobook narrator, actor, and voice actor. It may not seem like it, but they’re all intricately related, all about the voice and the story.
My books, Camelot & Vine and Act As If: Stumbling Through Hollywood With Headshot in Hand, each have their own page on the site, and you can preview their insides above. Or live dangerously: skip the formalities and purchase them here.
I hope you’ll add my blog to your regular reading. My dog, Wilma, has pretty much taken over. Her posts go up each Wednesday. ”

‘Camelot & Vine’
“Camelot & Vine introduces Casey Clemens, a failing Hollywood actress with an honesty problem. On the day before her 40th birthday, Casey loses her job, her married boyfriend and everything else she never cared about. She hops on a plane, gets drunk and falls through a gap in time. Casey lands in the 6th century war camp of the great King Arthur, where honesty is required but absolutely not useful when you’re facing a sword. So she lies. And that’s where the danger begins.”

Author of fiction books and stories set in a future without advanced technology, which all interrelate in time and space.
