Author Biography

Blaine C. Readler is an electronics engineer, inventor, and writer (although that’s rather redundant considering the context). He lives in San Diego, from where he ventures forth in spring and autumn when the rest of the country is habitable. He comes to you courtesy of his wife, who keeps him alive and healthy against the adversities of his cantankerous protests.

Gabe wakes up in his bedroom to find a raccoon talking to him. The sign on his car announced that he was an animal sitter but the raccoon was not one of “his” animals. The raccoon, aka Ronald, was a space alien, although he didn’t like that term. Ronald was occupying the body of the raccoon so that he could communicate with Gabe. Ronald has been sent to Gabe so that he can save mankind from the Demon-zombies. “They are parasitic beings who depend on other living organisms for their existence.” Meanwhile the Demon-zombie’s blew up a nuclear submarine. Alien’s using a raccoon’s body, inhabiting humans; bee’s, and Gabe’s adventure has just begun

Monsters in the Attic is a hilarious read. Gabe has been chosen to save the world but can he trust Ronny? Who would have ever thought of making a raccoon one of the main characters in a book? Blaine C. Readler is brilliant! He has combined humor, science fiction, drama, adventure and maybe a little horror all in one plot. The result is a great read. The plot would make a fantastic movie.

My favorite character of course was Ronny. However, all the characters were well developed. The plot was well written and developed. A different cover would make the book more eye catching. It is easy and an honor to recommend Monsters In The Attic. Buy a copy and you will be glad you did.
