Please see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FJHk...

A cold winter chill made me think I was back in Pittsburgh. The breeze seemed to come out of nowhere, and then I turned around like someone had tapped me on the shoulder, and I wasn’t sure exactly how long I had been walking or why I Read more of this blog post »

Ice Cream in Winter

I have a really sweet tooth. It's a huge problem for me. I would rather eat cake than dinner and if I'm feeling particularly delicate I will reach for the lollies big time.

Writers, Inside Out

A man does not write one novel at a time or even one quatrain at a time. He is engaged in the long process o Read more of this blog post »

My disastrous first literary festival

Now I’ve lived in Orpington – an agreeable but unfamous London suburb – for over three decades, but I was still pretty amazed to learn (from an adult cello pupil) that the worthy Rotarians were mounting the very first Orpington Literary Festival.

Where does inspiration come from?

Inspiration is a gift. I don’t know where it comes from, or why it comes to us, but it’s hard to imagine what our world would look like without it.

The 1979 Revolution in Iran Was an Instant Coffee for Iranians

The 1979 Revolution in Iran stems from human nature. It is the nature of instant self-gratification. The spirit of instant self-gratification is careless and does not process information carefully about what human needs are and what dangers lurk in the shadow. The essence of human nature is focusing Read more of this blog post »

I write romantic suspense with dark elements and psychological thrillers.
