Well, I DO write. But mostly emails, blogs, and various nonsense.
I finished editing my sequel, someone looking at it at the moment.
I have started participating in a blog where once a week, I try to squeeze my verbosity into 100 words.

And I am writing a new book, something completely different, s... Read more of this blog post »

In September 2014 I was having lunch with two of my longtime writing students. Born 5 days apart, 78 years ago, they are both from coal mining families in West Virginia. Both are veterans.

Ahora que se vuelve a hablar un poco de distopías feministas como El cuento de la criada o The Power, no hay que dejar de lado aquellas que llegan en otros formatos como es la novela gráfica. Bitch Planet ha sido aclamada desde que comenzara a publicarse en 2014 y a principios de este año Astibe... Read more of this blog post »

~A moment before the story~

A tennis ball glanced his face. There was a sting, but Calin started laughing out loud as he pulled back his arm and threw a tennis ball at his friend.
It was his birthday. Seventeen. And sure enough, Kara Getsame had taken it upon herself to prove he wasn't a good aim.

I think it’s finally time to announce that I’m writing a new book!
No finish or release date yet. Just wanted to let you know a new book is in the pipeline!
And that word count of 50,000? That’s a stretch goal for me. I usually write novellas, but this one could be novel length. This word count win... Read more of this blog post »

In my forthcoming fantasy novel, I make liberal use of flashbacks.  In fact, every chapter begins with a scene from earlier in the life of with Shiloh or Silas.  In the Kingdom of Bryn, the past isn't buried.  It informs nearly every decision the characters make.

Desde el año 2011, se ha instalado en nuestro país la idea de que estamos enfrentando una crisis política.

If one views Marshall (2017) with the expectation that it will depict the lifetime of its subject—Thurgood Marshall (1908-1993), the civil rights stalwart—one may be surprised (as I was) but not disappointed.
