About this author

I live in the teeny, tiny town of Taylor, NY, (Alliteration Alert!) though my mailing address is Cincinnatus, my telephone exchange is Truxton and I pay taxes and vote in Cuyler. All of these are at least in the same rural county in the southern hills of New York State; Cortland County. There are more cattle than people here. The nearest “big” cities are Syracuse and Binghamton and they are an hour away, in different directions, and not really all that big by most standards, though they both seem humongous to me. I look out my window to see rolling, green, thickly forested hills, wildflower laden meadows and wide open blue, blue skies. My road is barely paved. The nearest neighboring place is a 700 acre dairy farm.

My house is a big, century...more

I think that sounds most like TWILIGHT HUNGER. The one where she finds the diaries in attic and thinks they were written by a long dead lunatic who thought he was a vampire. She uses them to write screenplays that put her on the map in the film industry, but he comes stalking her. And there's a scene where he's in the basement and she sort of feels him there. (less)

I use the words I feel best convey the emotion in any given situation and try to make my characters speak both like real people speak, and like the people they are. This is the task of every writer. It always fascinates me how readers who are okay with premarital sex and villains who commit murder and mayhem, get offended by the words "God damn" which actually is a prayer, of sorts. You're kind of calling down God's wrath on the person or situation you're referring to when you say those words. You're saying, "God, I wish you would damn this person (or thing.)" (aka condemn them to hell.) So there's really not a thing wrong with using the line if you understand its true meaning. (less)

I had one of my breakthrough moments last night, a note to my subconscious, delivered while I slept and all my blocks were down. It wasn't a dream, it was something I woke up knowing, which happens sometimes.

Here's what popped into my head.

Wouldn't it be cool if, when one person did crunches, all people got washboard abs? That would be amazing. We could have one person working out and we Read more of this blog post »

“Then, almost as an afterthought, she turned and locked the bathroom door. If he thought he was going to seduce her, make her stupid enough to believe his lies by getting her into bed, he'd better think again. She stepped into the water. Besides, women didn't lose brain cells at the thought of sex. Only men did.”
