An it harm none, write what you know.

Those of you who have somehow managed to find me know I’m really not very active online. I’m an outsider because it’s a place where I feel the most comfortable. But in light of recent events in, but not limited … Continue reading

Crazy quilt writing or just a little crazy…

My schizophrenic writing style is slowly dragging me forward. I’ve got a lock on two stories right now—both completely different, that keep wrestling for my time. I think the winner might be another sci-fi because the blurb dropped out of … Continue reading

Writer’s block.

I can’t tell you how many “cures” I have sought for this particular condition. I think it has to do with the way an author’s brain is wired. I can literally feel the gunk in there. It’s a pressure, like … Continue reading

Fidelity has a new cover!

Hopefully, in a few days, Fidelity’s new cover will be visible at Amazon, but here is a sneak-peek of it here: I love the new design, and I can’t wait for it to show up! I’ve decided to use the … Continue reading

First Chapter Teaser (What I’m working on)

Looks like my hopes of having this out in July were wishful thinking (like: “I wish I had enough time to get this out in July”). But I’d rather have it right than fast, so I’m hoping more late August/early … Continue reading
