Orpheus is known above all for his singing. His voice is so exquisite, his songs so potent they enable him to transform nature and even allow him access to the Underworld. His singing stirs the animals into dance; inanimate nature in the form of rocks and sto...Read more of this blog post »

“ Alexei, it’s alright. It’s me, James. You’ve just tra...Read more of this blog post »
I was seated next to “Erica” – 91-years-old, college educated, Catholic, a “homemaker,” 3 grown children, 5 grandchildren. She asked about my work, and I told her I was an author. She wanted to know what inspired me to w... Read more of this blog post »
Often, poetry is personal. Son to mother. Man to woman. Father to son. Admirer to admired. As such, much of the best is directed at a specific person, often by name, yet it can apply to others too, and it can lift many. Some can be silly, even stupid, and some can explore depth...

Speculative fiction rocks!After I’ve read just about every PNR and UF I came across, I wondered what happened in books which I couldn’t quite categorize on my GR shelves. What the hell happened when science fiction met fantasy? Someone had to have named it right? Turns out Star Wars are already o...Read more of this blog post »

As we covered, The Reformation took root and spread with the development of the printing press and the Bible being made accessible to the people. As the Scriptures were read, the contrast between the practices and doctrines of the institutional church and the Word of God were easily seen. Multit...Read more of this blog post »

Fall is upon us. The flash fiction contest I entered had a theme of “autumn” so I decided to go way out on a limb and write something absolutely off-the-wall. Why the heck not?
P.S. I didn’t win. Nor did I expect to. I knew it was a little far out in left field to win. That’s okay, I had fun w...Read more of this blog post »
So I managed to upset a couple of people last month when I ran a free promo on my novel Sker House. How can giving something away piss people off? Because in the run-up to the free promo, Sker Houseexperienced some weird inexplicable sales spike. It happens. Not nearly often as I would like, but...Read more of this blog post »
This is a common refrain of authors. Humans, generally, I think, but chances are you don’t idly wonder how you’d butcher a human or which part of a human is best to eat, and then Google it. (Until now!)
So, here is a list of a few of the things that have really changed the sorts of ads I get now,...Read more of this blog post »

It’s time for my novel’s Cover Reveal for A Promise Made!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post, but I’ve been in my writing cave with Marla Sullivan and Josh McKenzie. From the moment I began writing A Promise Kept back in 2014, (then titled Before Now and Until Then – a two-parter),...Read more of this blog post »

One thing which really annoys me about the film version of Half-Blood Prince is that they make all the girls act ridiculously. In Potions, they all creep towards the Amortentia as if they can’t control themselves, while the boys remain stunningly immune. This never happens in...
When the Black Hack came out, it sent a good number of waves out into the world with the ideas that it generated, and from it rose a number of inspired products that covered other types of games, rather than the standard fantasy genre that the original Hack covered.

Well, I had an exciting week at Invicta FC 19. I arrived on Tuesday, coach John on Wednesday, and we successfully dressed up as She-ra and He-man for the photo shoot. I made a big effort to find the costumes, and swords. Then found I didn’t have adequate support for “the girls,” and the front fel...Read more of this blog post »
