My historical romance with a mystery is being released by Eternal Press on October 7th, 2009! Come join in the fun! Launch Party at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EternalPressReaders/
Today, I feel as though I’ve just won the Oscars and I am standing in front of a room full of beautiful people, but instead of holding the little statue of the much-coveted, bald, golden man—I’m proudly holding a copy of my novel, ANGEL OF WINDWORD,… Continue

Oceans aren’t only affected by winds and tides. They’re also mixed by jellyfish. That’s right, jellyfish. There was a study done that showed how far dye travelled when swum through. It’s now believed that movements of marine creatures play a much bigger role in distributing temperature and nutrients throughout the ocean than originally believed.
A toucan’s beak acts much like elephant ears in that it pulls heat from their bodies when… Continue

“It will never, ever
sell,” Sofia decreed in her Doge of Venice voice, shaking her head as she ate the last shrimp on her $22.95 seafood salad platter. “Trust me. Nobody will read it,” she continued, taking a sip of her Chablis.
I didn’t respond and, instead, took a bite of my $6.99 burger, wondering why I had let a chance meeting, after five years of not seeing each other, lead to a ‘catch-up-on-old times’ luncheon two days… Continue

One of the first things a neophyte writer learns after celebrating the publication of his or her first book is that the bulk of the marketing responsibility falls on the author. The second object lesson absorbed is that marketing is much harder than writing the book. Advertising in productive venues is not cheap. Travel to bookstores across the country for book signing fests not only gulps the dollars but drains the time of the author, who is probably attempting an encore performance. The… Continue

You sure about that? There are now weekly competitions held all over the world so if you’re serious we can find you an event to participate in.
But you better be prepared. Just some of the things you’ll be competing in are the Pillar of Hercules where you’ll stand between two 350 pound leaning columns which you’ll be required to hold upright, the Truck Pull as in you’ll be strapped to a tractor trailer which you’ll need to tow. If that’s not… Continue

This week’s essay is posted: Choosing to Believe
. Do stop by.
"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they're yours."
--- Richard Bach, Illusions.
There are times when we honestly can't write. A few weeks ago I noticed a unpleasant tenderness in my thumb. Gripping jars was difficult and typing became… Continue

Yesterday I went out and about. My intended mission was a total bust. Target didn’t have what I was looking for. Or perhaps they did. The store’s too damn big and I couldn’t find anything even remotely resembling what I wanted but maybe I was in the wrong section. Entirely possible I missed it altogether.
One thing about the new phone. It has a GPS locator on it. Good thing too. I turned it on in the store and was about to call for help… Continue

Enjoy this excerpt:
I filled a syringe with morphine.
Could innocent blood ever be washed away?
Would my hands ever be clean again if I continued on this course? The gas would make them choke, gasping for breath as life was strangled to nothingness. Morphine would make them euphoric, and an overdose would put them to sleep, peacefully, with no pain. A sleep from which they would not awake, but they would be safe from the evil that awaited them… Continue
