Well, the day has finally come...

My first full-length novel, Devil's Day, has arrived on Kindle. Feels great to share this with you guys. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it. The novel is, at its core, a love letter to 80's genre cinema, infused with a more extreme, hardcor... Read more of this blog post »

0-A Love Undone (1)


*A Love Undone

Releases September 9, 2014!


My desire to write what I used to call “Andy’s Story” had been building for years, and before the time to write it drew near, I felt the story wash over me, tossing me about like crashing waves.


When I finished writing the last book in Amish Vines and Orc...

Francine Rivers Francine Rivers's blog:

Two articles caught my attention in the last few days. One, in a Christian magazine, reported how many college students are losing their faith and leaving the church. The writer suggested that we not even allow our college age kids to leave home unless they are firmly grounded in scripture. The s...

dfaeg-800x500If you didn’t read my post earlier this week, let me recap: my first four novels went through extensive rewrites, probably because they were also the first four books I’d ever written. Because of that, I have a lot of deleted scenes from them, and in some cases, alternate versions. Many of you h... Read more of this blog post »

You Had to Be There   Three Years of Mayhem and Bad Decisions in the Portland Music Scene by Sharon E. Cathcart


To me, music must have three elements: rhythm, melody and harmony. I played piano, violin and guitar, and also sang (choir and theatre). I had a grounding in classical music as a result, and a correspondingly particular ear. As I’ve said before, my taste is eclectic; I’ll give just about anythin... Read more of this blog post »

I hear this every once in a while. I think it’s a pretty fundamental misunderstanding of what writers do, authorial intent, the value of a reveal, character evolution, the difference between a writer’s voice and a character’s, and the ability of a character to recognize bad behavior and try to co...

I'm looking for an introduction to philosophy text that meets the following criteria:
