I hope I keep characters fresh & unique & endearing, but I also never know. I know many are based either on me of course or of people I know. Regardless of who I'm writing about, I strive for authenticity. I feel I do that from an emotional level, the place I write from. I love wondering what makes people tick. I still feel I have a long ways to go to create some truly original and endearing characters, but I'm learning. Thanks for the question! (less)

This year I decided to embark on a fun writing & publishing venture. I’m planning and hoping to blog a novel chapter-by-chapter. The novel is called The Howling Wind and it’s the first of a three book trilogy called The Hinterlands. (Check out the blog here)
So what exactly is this story all about? Here’s a brief write-up on the series. It’s still deliberately vague but that’s for a reason.... Read more of this blog post »

Stephen King had more impact on my youthful aspirations for writing than any other author. But just like King, I've changed a lot since being a teenager and discovering books like THE STAND, IT, and DIFFERENT SEASONS. And honestly, I haven't really l ...more

Love unreliable narrators. Amazing thing is this book really picked up in the MIDDLE, something many novels never do. The much-talked about ending didn't bother me--felt it fizzled out a bit. But still a remarkable work about really awful people.
Travis Thrasher made a comment on On The Sea
" I have it planned out in my mind. Another four books. This time in college.

Poor Chris.

" That's a great review, John!! Thanks so much. Appreciate you checking out these books and so glad you liked them. "

“What?" I ask. I don't get anything about this day. Everything is just off.
"Are you sure?"
"Am I sure where I live? Yeah. Steeple Drive."
"Your cabin is on this road?"
"Is it just me, or is everything I'm saying slightly freaking you out?”

“She ever marry?"
"No."
The no sounds like "not in a million years." Like Aunt Alice couldn't marry, like she has one arm and horns sticking out of her head and she talks in tongues. Or maybe has several tongues to talk with.”

Moriah My dad and I are really enjoying the Solitary Tales!! Just bought them on a whim with some of my graduation money and REALLY glad I did!
Great job! Particularly on dialogue and character development. Chris is literally one of the most believable and lovable characters I've seen in a while. :)
