In a writer's life, this is a tricky time - you want to keep working, but you don't quite know on what. I know I'll hear back in another week or two (at most) about the current manuscript, so I'm reluctant to start in on something altogether new that I would then have to drop when the editor gets back to me with her next round of notes. Unlike some writers, I'm incapable of keeping more than one big idea in my head at one time. I have to focus entirely on one subject, which used to drive my wife (oops, ex-wife) crazy. In a novelist, monomania isn't such a bad thing.(less)

Anyway, thanks for your comment on the Einstein book -- and that would have been a very god idea -- but I've moved on to other stories and characters. "The Jekyll Revelation" came out over a year ago, and "The Night Crossing" comes out in September - both with entirely new casts of characters. I like creating new stuff from scratch. (less)

THE EINSTEIN PROPHECY

First of all, I have no idea what I am doing, or if I am even in the right place to do it, but as my publisher quite rightly expects me to do my part, I am writing this post to announce that my new historical/ supernatural thriller, THE EINSTEIN PROPHECY, is currently available through a little outfit called Amazon -- even though the official publication date is August 1st. Earlier this month,... Read more of this blog post »

I was inspired, many years ago really, by reading the unfinished autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini. I loved that book, and decided to take up the challenge and finish it myself. It just took me a few decades to get around to it. Thanks for readin... See Full Answer

A beautiful tribute

Touching, poignant, and elegantly written . Not to mention, very well stocked with insight and hard-won wisdom. I highly recommend it.
