There’s a Bad Moon in Your Eyes…


“There’s a Bad Moon in Your Eyes…” was the final story in the original batch of Bruce and Roxanne tales.

Don’t forget, the Kindle version of Bruce and Roxanne from Start to Finnish is available here, and the paperback is here. (And if anyone would like a signed copy, that can be arranged. Just drop me a line at
