Choose a button, hold it in your hand, keep it in your pocket, as a constant reminder of the single most important thing you must do to succeed as a writer:

Put your butt-on that chair and WRITE! *s*

Second, and equally important, rather than write what you know...write what you LOVE, write what makes your breath quicken, your heart swell, eyes prick with emotion, causes laugh-out-loud delight--write the book you've always wanted to read. (less)

Lost And Found (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Excerpt from the "dog viewpoint" thriller, first in a series. An autism cure will kill millions unless a service dog and his trainer find a missing child . . . in 24 hours. Animal behaviorist September Day has lost everything—husband murdered, career in ruins, confidence shot—and flees to Texas with her cat Macy to recover. She’s forced out of hibernation when her nephew Steven and his autism service dog Shadow disappear in a freak blizzard. When her sister trusts a maverick researcher’s promise to help Steven, September has 24 hours to rescue them from a devastating medical experiment impacting millions of children, a deadly secret others will kill to protect. As September races the clock, the body count swells. Shadow does his good-dog duty but can’t protect his boy. Finally September and Shadow forge a stormy partnership to rescue the missing and stop the nightmare cure. But can they also find the lost parts of themselves?
