I grew up in a little country town called Walla Walla. A tiny place - about 600 people and a Lutheran church that, ironically, could seat all of them. Walla Walla had one big thing going for it - a lack of FUN trouble to get into. So when I was a kid, I spent most of my leisure time reading. And writing. And imagining weird stuff. I come by that talent naturally, you know - my mother has a nutty imagination and a nuttier sense of humour.

I grew up, moved to the Big Smoke, made a few dumb mistakes, grew up some more, and eventually realised that I'd always wanted to be a writer. So I started writing again.

I tend to get 'writer's block' when I notice a problem in my story and don't have an immediate solution for it.

I have two methods for dealing with it:

- Describe the exact problem exactly where I noticed it in the text, surrounded by square brackets [ ]. The square brackets are to help me find it later; often once I have the problem down in words and know that I'll deal with it before the book's published, my mind is cleared of that worry and I can go on with whatever scene I was writing. I have to thank Piers Anthony for this solution; he mentioned it once in an Author's Note at the end of a book, and it's been a great boon.

- Put it in background processing. Sometimes I can't think of a good solution to a plot hole or boring section of story. Typically, I'll just go on with a different task, and think about the problem on and off over the next week or two. Generally I'll have an 'A ha!' moment, and the problem is solved in a weird and funny way without much conscious thought.(less)

New book! Podcast! Excitement!

A city skyline at sunset. A speech bubble emerging from a tall building says,

I’m thrilled to announce my next venture – a collaboration with Stephen O’Connor. It’s called The Other Shoe, and it tells the story of some very unusual people and their fight for what they think is right.

“New Rule #1 – Don't date women who paint. Arty-farty doesn't just equal freaky in the sack, it also equals nasty genius revenge. I don't like genius when it's happening to me.”
