I'm not here to coddle you.

A lot of writers are afraid to speak the truth, or at least the truth as they see it. They want people to read their books, they're worried over reviews and getting 5-stars to be noticed. I am not. I write because I need to, like drinking water, or eating. It's a part of my life. I will not, howe... Read more of this blog post »

CLEAN - Debut

Book 1, CLEAN, introduces Vortmit in a conspiracy thriller intended to be enjoyed in the series, but also as a stand-alone book. When I set out to write the story, I mapped a long story arc over five books. Vortmit's deeply personal motivations become clear in Book 2 and 3 as his ruthless behavio...

Tips For Sports

"How do you find a sport that really sings to you? You’ll find it if you do research and try different things you have an interest in. If it’s challenging, persist and overcome yourself." -- Excerpt from my book "Guide to Free Thinking"

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.

No matter what anyone has to say about what I write, and no matter what anyone calls it—cozy indeed—just being in the same room with Robert B. Parker and some of the other notables here, including some of my own friends, gives me goosebumps. That under the bridge…

Speaking of bridges, first, or se... Read more of this blog post »

Back-to-School Teacher Dreams in Adequate Yearly Progress: A Novel

I’ve always been interested in the dreams so many teachers seem to have at the end of a school vacation – so much so that I’ve written about The Bathrobe Dream and Other Teacher Nightmares for a few publications, and also talked about it on a podcast with Pius Wong, of the K-12 Education Engineer...

Little People: A Fantasy Story About Fathers, Sons, and Monsters by Daniel Charles Wild

I have a little announcement—I wrote and published a novella. I illustrated the cover too. It’s a 20,000 word YA fantasy adventure story, but I think it will appeal to readers of all ages. It deals with some pretty large (and small) themes, and just a heads up—it might be a little dark. In it, a... Read more of this blog post »

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

I picked up this novel (well, downloaded it onto my Kindle Paperwhite) because it was listed as a best book of June 2019. I finished it in several hours while sitting in a striped beach chair in the Atlantic, trying to stay cool from the day's searing heat, slathered with 30 SPF sunscreen. I sett...

Ranking the long fiction of Jack Ketchum

Jack Ketchum is, in a word, twisted. Or, rather, he was. The now late author specialized in realistic, grounded horror stories about people doing awful things to each other. Extreme though he was, his best work held up a dark mirror to society, examining why people do the terrible things they do.... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
