I think it's been ten years, I think, since I've read Smaller and Smaller Circles but I still remember it. Being a mystery and crime fiction buff, I was stunned by this book's well-crafted plot in a familiar setting. It was like Silence of the Lambs but more believable, not just because of the fa...

---it is said they carry Spring on their wing tips. So irresistible is the imagery, I once wrote a short story about it. In Southern California, this springtime migration has also given birth to another seasonal ritual: the celebration of the birds' return to San Juan Capistrano Mission, which ta...

I just broke the law, put myself in physical danger, and worked up a nasty sweat. Wasn’t even wearing the right shoes, just clogs, and how could I have gone out without a bottle of water? Here’s the story.

Mr. Blackthorne did an excellent job in executing the development of his scenes so his readers weren’t left feeling as though something was lacking or thrown together. “Broken” was consistent with a quick pace, but again, nothing felt rushed.

Alright then.

Yesterday I went downtown to anther cafe (well okay, it was a bar) with the ole notebook. I started off listing what the plot HAS to do, and what it CAN'T do; i.e. what events I can't portray, as they would logically lead in a direction I don't want. That is, I find, a good way of cl...

If there were any one phrase I should've had to write on a chalkboard 1000 times, it's that one.

"I will not destroy the world."

As a first time author, I have to admit I'm torn over whether to read reviews or not.

Because I'm also an author I do not award stars on reviews. I just don't think it's seemly for an author to do so. An honest opinion is what works in my book. And we work with words, not stars.

Am I the only Hobbit in Hobbiton who doesn't get tortured souls?

Let's take Heathcliffe as an example.

Is he a tortured soul?

Or is he just a very naughty boy?

And why should we care?

Okay. This is a bit simplistic and more than a bit tongue in cheek, but there is a point.

Are tortured souls overused s... Read more of this blog post »
