I go to the gym, take a walk, etc., and try to forget writing. You never truly forget writing and within a day, or even hours, ideas swirl and I'm back to work. (less)

Hearing that means my hard efforts to create a story were truly worthwhile. For a short period of time I was successfully able to transport that reader to a world I created solely for their enjoyment. (less)

Solomon's Men (Mystery & Thrillers)
2 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Greg Valdez is the best in the business. You name it; he’s stolen it—from jewels to fine art, and all for private collectors and insurance companies. Now his mission takes him to a centuries old monastery in Portugal to steal a priceless artifact—a Crusader’s pouch—from within the altar. But the artifact becomes the ransom for his loved ones and the object of a mercenary led search. Old oaths and traditions come into play as a secret, militant religious Order launches an international chase for the thief and the true Shroud of Jesus concealed within the Crusader’s pouch.

Interesting question...Never thought about it, but an ancient world comes to mind. Possibly the world in "John Carter of Mars" by Edgar Rice Burroughs. There I would be in some resistance unit to combat an oppressive army and nation as Carter did. Ye See Full Answer
