Every Day Is Earth Day

Environmentalists have specific interests. They are interests that not everyone will appreciate. I am not a particularly serious environmentalist, yet I had a bit of a rep with my older son's first grade teacher because I wouldn't send disposable items into school. Little Wi...

I love epilogues, and may be one of the last American authors to make frequent use of them. They bring closure to my historical novels. Here are the final pages of the epilogue of my next novel, Anything Goes, which follows a vaudeville company as it tours Montana and Idaho in 1896. It will be pu... Read more of this blog post »

I want to be a storyteller.

This is different than just an author or someone who writes books for a living. It seems to me (and I may be waaaay off base with this) that many authors out there - way more successful than me mind you - crank out narrative after narrative with no real personal connect...

Great work requires both time and space, but you also need both attention and intention to deliver quality results.

But attention without intention is powerless. Why? Because unless you know why you’re dedicating energy, focus, and time to something it won’t get your full effort. The reason beh...

Hope for a Dying Marriage


Drawn from my archives


Are you past hope in restoring your marriage? I know that some of you think you are, but are you sure about that?

Pallid Cage

I’ve crawled up and inside my mind.

Sure, it’s a figurative expression in a world of literal abstraction.

It was a Tuesday.
