In the next few weeks I have taken up my first A-Z Blog Challenge. This challenge is to take each letter of the alphabet daily (except Sundays) and create a blog based on the letter of the day.
I will be creating a short story each day, most likely about our good “friend” Rocky.

These stories will be essentially flash fiction and not part of any novel that I have written thus far. I have reserved the right for the stories to be continuous but they may not be.

I invite you to come back every day and see what Rocky is up to as well as all the gang from the Tuna Club.

Remember: No matter how weird it can get, there is always some element of truth.

I write Pulp Fiction,

It’s stating the obvious to say these are strange and hard times. I’ve been driving the freeway and I know a lot of folks are working at home. If you are at home you’ll probably want a break to take your mind off things.

I took a break and read The Good Shepherd by C.S. Forester. It’s about a deeply religious US Navy Commander who is in charge of several escort destroyers protecting a convoy in the North Atlantic during WW2. The story is action, action, and action. The outward conflict takes place on the sea against German Submarines. Internal conflict also shows in Commander Krause who leads the destroyer escorts, and is the one man who has no combat experience. He wonders how he was selected to lead when younger subordinates have had long fighting experience. It’s worth the read just to find out how he grows into his position.

It’s a good story about a man who only wants to have his subordinates do well. It’s easy to see why Tom Hanks, who plays Commander Krause, has made the movie.
The Good Shepherd is a terrific read by a great author. When you get into Commander Krause’s mind his thinking may help you get through these times.

My names Wally Runnels and I write Border Pulp.

Stay Well.

Twisted Love
by Wally Runnels (Goodreads Author)

Brenna’s reviewFeb 15, 2020
Four stars-really liked it

Julietta is an archaeologist. Rocky is an ex-Marine turned hired killer. Set in Mexico, the stories of these 2 characters are, initially, separated. Eventually, the stories intersect, but not without a mix of the Mexican Drug Cartel, dirty cops, bloodshed, and the possibility of bringing forth some Aztec spirits.
Yes, the story has bloodshed. Yes, there are some gritty scenes in the book. Yes, there are prostitution and drug scenes in the book. The characters of Julietta and Rocky are well developed, passionate about what they do. Runnels works in a good twist or two of who is double-crossing who. Both Rocky and Julietta have a dark side, but both have heart, with a desire to get past the negativity in their world and move forward.
Twisted Love moves quickly and will keep your attention. I kept it with me in my car and at home so whenever I did sit and read, the book was right there.

***I received a copy of this from Wally Runnels.

Are you feeling lucky? Do you have your lucky shamrock near?

About Wally Runnels:
Wally was born in San Diego, traveled through Mexico, and Latin America. He was
raised on the border at his family’s ranch, whose original deed was recorded in 1870.

grain of truth.
