Well-written movies stir my creative juices.
I envision sitting around a table with a team of creative writers to pen the
best characters (and who’d play the roles), thrilling plot, distinct dialogue,
amazing setting, powerful emotive conflict, intriguing symbolism, and everything

being a flight attendant. I’d fly to glamorous places, eat exotic food and flit
away the days at beaches with talc sand. A charming prince would whisk me back
to his castle and I Read More...
We’ve all heard of these. Magic buttons, or at least spots that can lead to
magic. And while they’re a bit of a cliché, there’s also some science behind
them. Even better, for those of us who like to be amused, there’s some side
notes science forgot. And here they are.
Ear nibbles. Shivery and delicious, right? But equally awesome are
sweet nothings, such as Read More...

Beck Townsend, retired Marine Corps special operative, is co-owner of a historic
building in downtown Tucson, Arizona. The building is two-story, with retail
stores in the front of the first floor, the Red Eagle Group offices in the back
on the first floor, and condos on the second floor. The building I referenced
while I was writing was the real historic Hittinger Building. I haven’t been
inside the building, but I fell Read More...

Can Supergirl kick Superman’s butt? I say yes, and here’s why: I live in a

Hence this post about My Favorite Female Superheroes of Pop Culture.
Let’s start with Supergirl. She was created in 1959 to be Superman’s

For some unfortunate reason, many libraries are becoming increasingly noisier
places, not at all the old “shhh” environments that existed years ago where
wrinkled librarians waggled their fingers back and forth at you for even
thinking too loud. Despite this change, there’s something about libraries that
puts me in the mood to write, not to mention the mountains of traditional
research that can be scoured up. This morning I was doing some work at Read More...
So, I’m writing a series centred on an Australian rugby team – the Sydney Smoke.
Not being the most sport-obsessed person in the world, this is a challenge for
me. Clearly I was going to have to do some research. So I did what all good (aka
procrastinating) writers do and hit the inter-webs to look for images of hot
rugby dudes doing their thing.
I know, right? Sometimes being a writer is Read More...
