I was the funny one.

That’s the sibling role I settled into at a young age. I was one of five children, and there was lots of jostling-about for bragging rights, so it was no easy task establishing my bonafides.

My big brother, the eldest, was the smart one, the leader, the pitch-perfect musician.... Read more of this blog post »

Joseph Hirsch Joseph Hirsch's blog:
I’ve held off on writing this down, even in a blog that no one reads, for a simple reason. I just don’t like thinking about the idea of my parents dying. I have no children of my own, and I’ve alienated myself from my sister-in-law badly enough that I never get to see my brother’s son, my nephew.... Read more of this blog post »

Gretchen grabbed Rusty’s wrist and led him out the door hoping if anyone saw they would assume the two were playing the vampire role to the limit. Once they were outside, Rusty grabbed Gretchen and pulled her close, hugging her, nearly jumping up and down for joy. “I did it! I told you I would!”

As you may have noticed, I changed the titles on a couple of my books – Slowpocalypse #1 is now Critical Contingencies, and Miraibanashi #1 is now Code of the Kyoushi. Certain Hypothetical and Whispers of the Dead were too subtle. Critical Contingencies is more compelling and speaks better to the... Read more of this blog post »

Do you ever read stories out loud when you are on your own? (I accept if you do this on the Tube, the bus, or what have you, you WILL get some funny looks, so probably best not go there! If you're driving, stick to audio books for your sake and everyone else's!).

His content is easily digestible; he offers tangible advice to follow, and his research goes back over a century in some cases. It’s an excellent baselin... Read more of this blog post »

Authors write to tell a story, to express a thought or emotion, to entertain. Mostly, we hope what we do impacts readers in a positive way.
