C. S. Lewis wrote about fairy tales for children: Since it is so likely that they will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.
G. K. Chesterton wrote: Fairy tales, then, are not responsible for producing in children... Read more of this blog post »

is wait for you
to text or call, or write
so I know you’re okay,
say anything, so I know.
Where you go,
I don’t care.
Who you’re with
I just want you to call.
That’s all I want from you.
The heavens speak.

My newest release, RIGID, is LIVE, and already a #1 bestseller. This book hinges around the live of single father/biker Grayson “Smokey” Wallace. He’s an outlaw 1% biker, and a devoted father who has a body to die for, a strong moral compass, and swagger that’ll swoon you with his first step.

Ik ben dol, maar dan ook dol op spullen die mijn liefde voor boeken uitstralen. Of dit nou prulletjes voor in mijn boekenkast (en dus ook voor bookstagram) zijn, t-shirts of sieraden; ik draag en bekijk het met liefde. En toen kwam ik via instagram schoenen met boekenprint tegen en was ik meteen...Read more of this blog post »
Hi guys, today I’m talking about a pair of games that I was completely buzzing about from the first mention of their release, Pokémon Sun and Moon.
I’ve been a massive Pokémon fan since the original games, so I’m going to admit that this could be a biased opinion right now. This series is the rea...Read more of this blog post »
Los tratadistas antiguos hablaban (creo) de la basileofagia dracosenil. Era una rara dolencia que aquejaba a los dragones al alcanzar una edad avanzada y les inducía el deseo imperioso de comerse a una princesa, lo que por fortuna solía evitar el héroe de turno o, en la épi...Read more of this blog post »

Ai, man kiek nusispjauti. Bet kartu ir ne taip.
Gana įdomu, kad AI, dirbtinis intelektas, šiaip, nenusispjaudinės dažnai – jam gi viskas svarbu, viską jis seka ir žino. Kai žmogus, ai, ir išmeta.
Ar būti žmogumi – tai sugebėti pasakyti „Ai“?

It seems that you have to be of a certain age to know about The Jeremy Thorpe Affair. From talking to people younger than me – or even the same age – it appears to be a cultural memory of the 1970s which really hasn’t survived.
That seems bizarre. You’d have thought that the leader o...Read more of this blog post »
the heat of French and Spanish Catalonia. And the latest, Mediterranean Summer, is still taking all of my attention after its launch. But I know that readers want to know that there is more to come, and we writers are always a book or so ahead o... Read more of this blog post »
Years ago, my husband to be and I went on a hike in Doughton Park. If you click on the link you’ll see a list of trails for the some thirty miles one can wander through, and never get lost. (see what I did there?) In our day backpacks we had bags of trail mix, some beef jerky, and water. Base...Read more of this blog post »
Jeg har kanskje glemt å si det, men boka mi kom i pocket for noen uker sida. Sammen med Heidi sin pocket, akkurat som forrige gang. Det føles fint. Du kan bestille boka her eller så kan du mase på favorittbokhandleren din om å bestille den. Det er en fin bok. Den handler om angst. Og løping. Og...Read more of this blog post »
I used to have a severe allergy to book descriptions that were nothing more than combinations of other popular works:
“It’s Hunger Games meets The Martian!”
“It’s Maze Runner meets Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!”
“It’s Lord of the Flies meets Are you There God? It’s Me, Margaret!”
But after year...Read more of this blog post »
Share this: If you’ve flown with your kids domestically, the main difference with traveling internationally is the duration of the flights. It’s only four and a half hours by plane from Chicago to Los Angeles. It takes almost twice that long to get from Chicago to Frankfurt, Germany. That’s a lot...Read more of this blog post »
So, I’m going through my first round of edits for Desert Siren right now. Mostly, it’s adding a few things like refreshers for the first book, an additional chapter where I wanted to expand on some characters, and cleaning up some dialogue to keep it consistent. Meanwhile, the above...Read more of this blog post »
A WRITING COMPETITION
I’m not expecting a flood of responses at this very early stage in my plot to ‘break the internet’, as Shakespeare so cleverly described it. But here’s the idea. Send me an opening sentence to the novel you may never get around to writing (or...Read more of this blog post »

Some of you may have heard about the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in London last week.

Jane is infected with a disease that will kill her in a matter of weeks. It is incurable, no matter how hard the medical world has tried, and it kills in all cases, shriveling the internal organs into useless husks, and putting all the energy gained from this atrophy into reconstructing the affli...Read more of this blog post »
Like it or not and regardless of how many times one hears the incorrect usage, words like “everyone,” “everybody,” “nobody,” and “someone” are, in almost all cases, singular – in other words, all pronouns that end in “one” or “body” take a singular verb. Let’s talk a little logic here. “One” sign...Read more of this blog post »
A couple of weeks back, my son and I watched this movie “Hindi Medium” starring Irrfan Khan and others. Irrfan Khan comes across as completely likeable, as usual. He’s such a spontaneous actor and interestingly, he’s not the usual conventional good looking film star. I mentioned this to my son an...Read more of this blog post »
