One with the machine

One with the machine.
For those of you who know me, or have read some of my books, blogs or short stories, you know by now that I like riding my motorcycle.  Sometimes, when it’s just me and the road, usually a long curvy one in the mountains, I’ll get to a place where I am one with the machine; I am in the zone.  The bike is purring like a kitten and I’m leaning into the curves with the throttle cranked and my face in the wind.  Right then, I am one hundred percent in the present moment.  There are no thoughts of the future or past running though my brain, there are now worries or troubles on my mind; it is just me and the machine.
It is the same way with my writing sometimes.  Sometimes when I am writing and the voices inside my head are talking, I drop into a zone where the words are coming so fast, the scenes are so action packed and the story seems so real, that, it almost is.  Right now my biker fiction novel, Thunder Road is out and just received a five star review.  You can still get Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations at and Barnes and Noble.  Otherworld Publications is going out of business, so I had to find a new publisher.  Hydra Publications will reedit and rerelease it sometime next year.  My Cave Man action adventure stories will soon be in one volume, titled Tales From The Lost Highway.  I am working on a sequel to Thunder Road, titled In The Wind.  I have a couple of science fiction novels and a haunted house novel that I have yet to publish, so I’ve got a lot going on and a lot on the back burner.  I would like to invite everyone to friends me on facebook, follow me on twitter and sing up on my blog page.  Shoot me an email if you want at
If you like riding motorcycles shoot me an email and let me know.  Tell me a motorcycle story about one of your favorite rides.  If you don’t ride motorcycles, I’d still like to hear from you anyway.  Let me know what it is that you do.  What is the one thing that you enjoy the most that puts you in the zone?  If you are an author and you would like to do a guest post, contact me and let me know.  If you are a blogger and you like to review books, if you would like to review some of mine, I’ll make arrangements so that you can download them free at  I guess that’s about it for now.  Until next time I’ll keep doing what I do best: reading, writing and riding my motorcycle.
