I received a copy of The Sir Rodney Vignettes through a Goodreads giveaway.
This book made for satisfying light reading, fulfilling its role as a source of laughter quite well. Though the titular character is described by a flattering narrator, the compliments presented often imply something less positive about Sir Rodney. Everything from being drinking buddies to having an insensitive sense of humor is presented as though it were the trademark of outstanding character on Rodney's part. The amount of energy the narrator puts in almost makes you wonder if he's been bribed to be so complimentary! He openly admits that Sir Rodney paid for all of his meals during his first stay in London and claims, when putting secondhand stories in his own words, that he has no intention of changing the original meaning... And you need to tell me this because? Pretty suspicious, dude.
The synopsis for the book mentioned 'pretentiousness' and that's certainly something Meyer has down pat. Even if Rodney weren't the flattered but flawed character he is, the diction in this work would hit the pretentious vein all on its own. The language serves to elevate the level of ridiculousness this work relies on for its humor.

THE THREE KITTIES THAT SAVED MY LIFE was my heartfelt attempt to make things right again in my own life, and putting this true story of love down on paper worked. It was something that I just knew I had to do. One reviewer says of this book, "This is like drinking tea and honey on a cold day."
TRIANGLE OF HOPE was written as a testament to the fact that sheer determination on the part of people can bring about hope in even the most hopeless of circumstances.
THE SIR RODNEY VIGNETTES is a collection of humorous anecdotal episodes in the life of an Old World Charmer, allowing the English professor side of me to come forth.
I have resided in and have visited many places in the world, all of which have contributed in some way to my own published writing. I have literally traveled throughout the world, on numerous occasions. I have lived in Finland, Germany, Thailand, Saudi Arabia (where COVERT DREAMS - INTERNATIONAL SUSPENSE COLLECTION BOOK ONE - is set), and the U.S. Virgin Islands (where DEADLY EYES - INTERNATIONAL SUSPENSE COLLECTION BOOK TWO - is set). I gained the wanderlust to see the world, to experience other cultures, at an early age, and this desire has never left me. If anything, it has only gained in intensity as I have aged. I try to travel internationally at least once a year. In the interim, I spend lots of time traveling around both my home state of California and other nearby states.
Among the many unique things that have happened to me in my world travels, I have walked the streets of Istanbul with a detective, searching for a pickpocket who got me good. I have ridden on the back of a motorcycle in Tehran while the driver, who spoke not one word of English, pointed out all the sights to me. I have wrestled an Iranian soldier who tried to break into my hotel room in Tehran. I have had the paint completely stripped from my car as I drove across Saudi Arabia in a sandstorm. I have stood on the stage of a busy nightclub in Tokyo, singing "She'll be Coming Round the Mountain When She Comes" to an audience feeling no pain from the Sake they were drinking. I have been chased by a family of mongooses (yes, that is the correct spelling) on the idyllic Caribbean island of St. Croix. And that is just the beginning of my long list of worldly adventures.
As a recent retiree from a forty-year career as a professor of writing, I now live in Southern California wine country with my wife, Kitty, and our two adorable rescue cats.
All my books are available as both e-books and paperbacks at Amazon, and they are all part of the KindleUnlimited program.
I thank you for your interest in my work.
