About Me

My name is Chaz and I write boring blog posts.

Most of my posts are random thoughts about the books I read, and I call those posts reviews. (Or shitty blog posts) I created this blog a couple of years ago in the hopes that it

Sarene is the best pup!

would get me to focus on writing more. As it turns out, the true value has come from the real connections with people I’ve met along the way by a mutual sharing of the passion of words and stories.

My greatest passion right now is finding captivating stories. I love experiencing a good emotional impact, which could be from fictional books, real stories, video games, or pretty much any form of entertainment done well.

I’ve been working on a cyberpunk novel (Only 200 or so pages in at the time of writing this), and I have laid some of the groundwork for other works that I am looking at creating. While most of my posts are book reviews, and it is how most people view my blog’s theme, I will be getting into some other topics and fields that have been interesting me. (Technology, Sociology, Politics, Psychology, Anthropology, etc. etc. etc.)

I try to be too funny all of the time, and I really can’t help it. One of my greatest joy is making people laugh. I will keep going and going if people are laughing. (Or if it’s just me laughing at my own jokes. Which is all the time…) I love jokes!

Outside of the fantasy world, I am in operations management. It is a very difficult, high stress, high pace, and often times requires me to be putting out fires all day. Because of this, I am very interested in leadership, management, and business in general. It can be a tough battle, but at the end of the day, it is worth it when your team succeeds. Anybody who knows me will tell you how dedicated I am to my work, and how I make it one of the top priorities in my life. I take a lot of pride in the work that I do.

So at the opposite end of the joking comedian spectrum, I can be an intense perfectionist that absolutely requires total dedication though. (Who isn’t a little crazy though?)

  1. Haha! You literally sound like my best friend!

    As a fellow New Englander, and partner owns a brewing company, I am high fiving you on the beer snob shenanigans.

  2. I saw you mentioned Brandon Sanderson. I’m currently halfway through the Wheel of Time series, which was a Robert Jordan series that Sanderson completed when Jordan passed away. I was just curious is you have read WOT?

  3. Hi Chaz! You’re funny! Seriously 🙂
    I lived in the Boston/Lexington area for 2 years and loved it. You are definitely right about the great breweries there!
    Thanks for liking my review post for Dead Sea Rising by Jerry B. Jenkins.
    Cheers!

  4. You said you never post/comment on the books you never finish? How come out of interest? Always good to take the negative aspects of a book with the good ones. But really like your about me section. A real insight to your writing and who you are. Looking forward to reading more of your blog!

  5. Hi Chaz, many thanks for liking my post about my new short story collection ‘Minding Mama & Other Short Stories’ – much appreciated! I love your enthusiasm, and completely get why you sometimes stop reading books (dare I hope that you might read mine all the way through?!? 🙂 . As a fellow ‘book junkie’ I tend not to review books I don’t finish, or don’t enjoy – although I sometimes think a review saying why I didn’t enjoy/finish it might be helpful to other readers, and perhaps the author… But having said that, I don’t always leave reviews for books I DO enjoy, either, and always feel bad about not doing so… usually it’s just the time factor (as in lack of). But I should probably make time to leave a review instead of diving into the next book or going off to drive a few more miles on ETS2/ATS. My bad!

  6. Hey! Thanks for visiting the Jenn Stories. I’d be honored if you were to buy and read my book that’s already out, and even more if after that, you bought and read the next one! Although…they’re a little different from each other. I can guarantee you’ll get through the first one in no time. It’s a quick, one-sitting kind of read.

  7. Thanks for checking out my blog! Definitely going to check out the books you’ve talked about! I’ll be updating every day, hopefully, so follow me for good books to read! I’m looking for cool people to engage with on the books I’ve read. Criticism or whatever, I’m here for it!

    1. Hi Zandra, Sorry I have not replied earlier but I have only just discovered this section of WordPress. Shows how techy I am! In reply to your question, my daughter arranges my website, when she has time, so I’m afraid I can’t help you. Thanks anyway for visiting my site.
