Vance’s New Joomla-CMS-Based Website

I’m currently writing the PHP code for a new template design.

Just this one template can be dynamically and easily changed into

many different column designs using the same CSS files for a

consistent (or inconsistent if you choose) look across all the pages of

your website. Never again be forced to use multiple inflexible templates for

the different web pages of your site.

Notes from Vance


I am currently writing mixed-genre fiction books that can generally be described as adventures, and often Poe-style thrillers, driven by a mystery plot, carried by two romantically involved, male-and-female, classical-literature-type characters with much intelligent, humorous banter.


My first book, The Legend of Mighty Mabel, fits the above general description and is a book for the entire family, but it is not a children’s book and it will be enjoyed and appreciated by adults. You can read more than 20% of it for free here on this website.


Come follow me on Twitter @VanceAvis as I humorously look at life through poetry in 140 characters. And I will occasionally let you know of updates to this website.


For questions and comments on any of my books (e.g. published editions or the upcoming, signed-and-numbered, first-print edition of The Legend of Mighty Mabel or new titles), please feel free to contact me at My website, (or, will soon provide more information on my books for those interested in what I am doing.

This is a work-in-progress website
