Greetings from Texas!

I have my MBA with Accounting concentration and that's my "day job" - I'm an Accounting Manager. I've been in that line of work in multiple industries for over twenty years now. I like it, and it pays the bills.

However, it's a far cry from my passion (and originally intended path), which was to be a writer who also perhaps taught Shakespeare at a university somewhere.

Fate, it seems, has a sense of humor.

For me, it's never really been a full-blown case of writer's block (and hopefully I did not just jinx myself saying that.)

In my experience it appears as more of a thoughtful pause, and it's usually when I am trying to line out logically the next steps of the plot or story in my head while trying to remain true to both the story and reader expectations.

So, I will sometimes deliberately step away for a dew days; symbolically move what I'm wrestling with to the 'back burner', and turn my focus to other aspects, such as shoring up a pending marketing effort. Then I return to my writing and many times find my subconscious has sorted it out.(less)

The only thing better than that is being able to invite readers to join you in that world, and of course the icing on the cupcake is when you know they've enjoyed that world as much as you do.(less)

A tribute

We lost my Dad on Monday, July 8, 2019.

Tuesday afternoon we started the process of going through Dad's things. Found a manila packet, opened it, and hit my knees sobbing.

It was his collection of short stories and poetry he'd written back in 1994. I'd been looking for it for months now, and had been really upset that I hadn't been able to find it. I thought they were lost forever. Now, I have th... Read more of this blog post »

I liked it!

Good basis of characters, intriguing premise. Fast-moving and gripping from page 1. The Renegade Spy kept my attention and was a thrill ride all the way through. Looking forward to "The Reichsbank Gold."

Up until recently, I was working through my mystery/thriller series and it was pretty much flowing along on its own.

“Writing is a lot of work, but also an escape. A lot of tears and sweat go into a story, building believable characters, shaping the plot
so that the reader can’t wait to turn the page. Sometimes I’ll wake up at 3 a.m. with that perfect line that escaped me earlier in the day running through my head. But it’s worth it. And the brilliant part is, you get to create a little universe of your own. Anything can happen; there are no limits.”
