I live and write in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. I never dreamed I’d call Sin City home, but when I arrived at the end of 1999 to do a little research for a book, I fell in love with the city beyond the neon and and never left. Actually, I love the neon, too. In fact, I’m crazy about the whole place -- quirks, warts, super-hot summers, and all! I write about “real life in the shadow of the Strip” for Living-Las-Vegas.com, but what I like best is crafting fiction set here. My new novel, STRINGS: A LOVE STORY, will hit stores & sites in September, 2017. It’s available for pre-order now.

Since that doesn't happen often enough, I have to make myself write anyway, even if I feel like I have nothing to say and no skill. I've come to realize that while inspiration is a lovely thing, it is not the most important ingredient for writing success. The important thing is doing it anyway, no matter what. Then, when inspiration shows up like a rare and beautiful bird, I appreciate it, knowing full well it will soon fly off again. I will say, those rare and beautiful birds show up a lot more often if I keep writing than if I wait for them to appear...(less)

I wish I could say I've never suffered from it, but to be honest, it has plagued me from time to time. The best remedy I've found is to switch to another writing project. Sometimes this breaks through the block, and I can get back to work on whatever was giving me the problem. Another thing that does the trick is having a deadline. When I know I must write to keep a commitment, I have less trouble with blockage. I do cherish those wonderful times when words flow like a babbling brook. It doesn't happen every day, but fortunately, neither does writer's block!(less)

Strings: A Love Story got a kickoff like few others last Wednesday. Violinist Ethan Lee and cellist Marcus Lee filled the beautiful, two-story atrium at the Viewpointe Executive Suites in Las Vegas with music so lovely I swear I saw a tear or two. Oh, wait. Those were mine.


And there was more. Juan Soto, who is a luthier by trade, brought several of his most beautiful (and expensive) violins for...
