I'm a husband and father of five, currently living in Florida. When I'm not writing stories, I work as the head instructor at a dojo of Shaolin Kempo Karate.

Okay, fellow indie-authors. Earlier in the week I posted about the importance of getting your book edited. But what if you can’t afford the exorbitant costs of editing, and don’t have the eyes for the task yourself? Should you have to wait for however long it takes to get the extra funds, all the while your manuscript is sitting idle, waiting to be published? If you’re one of the many starving...

I'm not one for the overdone zombie apocalypse stories, but the title itself gave me the idea that this one would have a bit of a unique flavor to it. The story is told in 1st Person POV but switches main characters: moms with different backgrounds. ...more
