When people ask me what I do for a living, nine times out of ten I tell them I’m
a stay-at-home dad. And that’s true, mostly—I do watch my son most of the day.
I’m only a writer from about ten at night to midnight when my wife and little
boy are asleep. When my wife and I came up with this arrangement, I never
expected it to help Read More...
When I was eight years old, I fell hard and fast for Jordan Knight from New Kids
on the Block. I wallpapered my bedroom with his face, slept on a pillow with his
likeness, and even owned a doll—complete with unfortunate rat-tail. Many summer
days were spent daydreaming that the group’s tour bus would randomly break down
in front of my house, forcing them to stop inside to make a call, and Read More...
One of the dynamics we’re told characterized Regency society was that the young
ladies desperately hoped for a handsome swain to be smitten with them, and
propose marriage. Marriage was the great prize, so worthy in itself, that a

So many fun things to do…
Reading, cooking, home renovation, writing, gardening and dancing…I have a few

grab a book or try a fun new Read More...

degrees for the last two months. What better time to dive into a book that’s set
in the snowy winter wilderness of far northwestern Canada? While a lot of you
live in areas of the country where you’ve got to shovel snow and de-ice your
windshield, I assure you, after twenty-plus years of living in Arizona Read More...
When I began to think about the title for the third book of my medieval serial
novel, Time Enough to Love, I had a rather difficult time coming up with
one that continued in line with the first two novellas, BETROTHAL and BETRAYAL. Those titles
came immediately to mind because the words exactly Read More...

I’ll start at the beginning. Before you can get a reader on the edge of their
seats, the reader must get to know, like, and sympathize with your character.
Let’s face it a nameless, faceless woman running from a killer sort of bores us.

The “Topic of Choice” option for a guest post during a blog tour can be a tough
one for a writer. Discovering the seed of an idea seldom occurs instantaneously,
and sometimes you have to fiddle around a bit before you find it. Since I’m
obviously here to promote my latest release, REBEL (book
ten of The Cat Star Chronicles Read More...
