Excited to see someone read VERVE STONES on Kindle Unlimited! I’m working to finish BACK OF BEYOND (THE LEGEND OF SPOON – BOOK 2). My family recently moved to Olympia and are staying with friends while we search for a house in the same neighborhood. I haven’t found much time to write with the move, starting my 13th year of teaching, and my daughter in kindergarten. The new reader and unbelievable cover for VERVE STONES mostly done from Jake at J Caleb Design are a huge motivations for me to get my nose to the grindstone.

1st Ninth Night Review

August 30, 2017
Ninth Night is a wonderfully light, mysterious, whimsical book that reminded me of high school years, love, and the importance of family ties. Mr. Aries has a gift with writing—details and character development that draw you into the story. Awesome book that is set in Cannon Beach! How often does the Pacific Northwest get highlighted in literature??? You will not be disappointed!

UNDER Review

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The gradual development of character and plot left me unable to put the book down. The way that James wove in themes around the complexity of forgiveness kept me thinking about Under beyond finishing the book. As an educator, I could see James’s consideration of young readers. Their is so much for young readers to explore within and beyond the pages in this book.
Thank you for the review!


My love for the undersea world began at my grandfather’s house. Grandpa Jo is an avid reader. My favorite book in his den was an undersea book fill with pictures of dolphins, sharks, and other sea creatures. I’d flip through its pages when we’d visit my grandparents. That book sparked my interest in all things under the sea.
