The Trilogy

I have finished the first novel in my planned trilogy, and started work on the third.

Given that I have yet to make a dent at the opening of the second novel, this is not necessarily a good thing. Last I recalled, 2 comes before 3.

As you probably know, my physical book is no more. My guess is that someone reported it as inappropriate and Creative Space took it down. It baffles me why an overly sensitive reader would buy it since I clearly state in the description they will...

Unit Study Inspired by Spark

When kids are interested in a topic, they’re more engaged and the process of learning is enjoyable. Which, in turn, helps foster a love for learning (and makes teaching fun).

A million-dollar tip for would-be writers

1. Take your five fave novels, rip out all pages (in order), and RETYPE each one, word for word. Save each in separate file.

2. After 30-60 days, edit each "manuscript" as if it were YOUR OWN. Make it better with each successive edit.

The cultural contrasts of the summer of '69 blew my mind, to use an idiom of the time. The Vietnam War was still raging, still escalating, young men still being drafted into the army - many against their will and conscience. At the same time NASA succeeded in fulfilling the late slain president's... 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
