One of the best parts of writing Lilac Girls was doing the research. Once I went to Poland and Germany whole scenes came alive. The same was true of my recent trip to St. Petersburg. I had hoped to find the same kind of inspiration for the prequel to Lilac Girls, whichnot only features life in N...

When brainstorming, one of the easiest things to do is throw out a bunch of ideas onto paper/keyboard and then ... stare at it blankly.

How in the world do I start? I had this great brainstorm and now it's just a jumbled mess. I'll come back to it later.

I recently rewatched two of my favourite movies, Dredd (2012) and Mad Max: Fury Road. They got me thinking about lean storytelling.

Both are extremely action oriented movies, but they communicate their worlds and characters through the action in a way that doesn’t feel shoehorned. A lot of it is...

If you peruse a selection of the reviews on Amazon or Goodreads you will find that they are largely positive—as in 4 or 5 star ratings. Considering that it is now, due to print on demand, possible for anyone to self-publish with no upfront costs, can it really be that the majority of books are “r... Read more of this blog post »
