Under the Mask Tease: Excerp from The Fickle Hand of Fortune

The high-pitched yelp has me running for the back door. Sarge, my old Belgian Shepard, had been outside for one last bathroom break before bed. He’d probably had a run-in with one of the neighbors’ cats; some of them were feral beasts.

His chain sits limply, trailing off into the shadows, ending at a darkened mass lying on the lawn. As I run to my long-time friend, the...

Well, I went and did a thing.

Many of my readers have told me that my stories feel like they were made for the screen. So guess what I did? I taught myself to write a screen play. I adapted my first novel, In Defense of Innocence and have joined the International Screenwriters Association and my feature script is now on sale.

This is an entirely different kind of writing for me but I have really enjoyed the learning experience a...

Hope everyone is enjoying summer and the warm weather. My writing has heated

 up. I’ve finished my novel; FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE and have sent it out to a few trusted authors to tear it apart so I can create a better product. This story is about four troubled teens who must attempt to stop an invasion of heaven, because God’s not around.

My newest work, THE OLD GUARD, deals with a group of World War II veterans who try to underst...

As mentioned in my last post, I had surgery to have a tumor removed from my bladder. On April 28th I met with the doctor who informed me that the CT scan showed that I was Cancer Free. The relief was immense. I had been struggling to keep writing but was having a tough time to concentrate. After hearing this news, I wrote approximately 4000 words over the weekend.

I’ve been real busy with my duties as an Intern and reading ARCs...

Two published novels, and a couple published stories, two more books before publishers and two more in the draft stages. Life has been busy and exciting.

It all came to a screeching stop about a month back when I began to pass blood in my urine. Snap straight to Google and of course, I will die. That’s it. All she wrote. This is truly the problem with the Internet. 

Doctor visit, no visible blood in a urine test but come...

We all have had this incredible dream of being the next Stephen King or Alice Monroe, but are we ready for it? Yes, we’ve been hitting the keys with all the dedication and time that our busy lives allow us or that we actively rip for ourselves, but what’s next? If you are serious of becoming an author, you need to start planning now rather than when you receive the sample copy from your publisher to prove that it’s actually ha...
