TapToTalk App

I heard from Silicon Valley author and entrepreneur, Phil Bookman, about a new app. Phil is CEO of Assistyx LLC the makers of TapToTalk.

TapToTalk turns a Nintendo DS, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into a portable communications (AAC) device. It’s designed for non-verbal children with Autism and other developmental delays. TapToTalk is affordable and fun to use.

TapToTalk apps are free with subscription.

This post is not intended as a commercial for TapToTalk. I’m hoping to get the word out to families about this service and the new apps.

Charisma: A Mike Gold Mystery

We were first introduced to Mike Gold, a successful Silicon Valley software entrepreneur in Opium, a Phil Bookman novel.

Charisma: A Mike Gold Mystery finds Mike working on his latest challenge. As the newly hired CEO of a biotech company he must first tackle the technology, and then take the company public. After the drama Mike went through in Opium: A Mike Gold Mystery, this should be a piece of cake. But once again, his life takes a surprising turn. Mike’s friend, and that of a loved one, will soon be in danger.

Mike Gold, successful Silicon Valley software entrepreneur, was out on the back deck enjoying another fine morning in Los Gatos when the call came. Berry Samson, venture capitalist and one of the richest men in the world, wanted to know if Mike would be interested in a deal. Running a start-up without the worry of chasing down funding, how risky could that be? The thought that it might become dangerous never entered Mike’s mind.

Opium A Mystery, by Phil Bookman, does not expect the reader to dwell on the faltering global economy or the valley’s unemployment rate. As we follow Mike Gold through the process of setting up ‘BackDeck Technology’ in Cupertino, we share his growing realization that something was not quite right.

I was along as Opium took Mike Gold on a walk on the wild side of Silicon Valley, so I asked, “Will there be more of Mike Gold’s life in the tech world?” The only hint the author would give me was the name of the next book. Yes, Charisma, the sequel will be released sometime this fall.

I asked Phil, “Did your literature professor praise your work in college?” Phil told me, “No, I majored in psychology and mathematics.” One day he told his wife that he thought he would write a book. His grandmother and uncle had been known for their entertaining stories. Phil finds that telling and embellishing a tale comes easy for him. For his novels, Phil draws from his own true life experience. He has had much success running and growing software companies.
