I have spent most of my life accumulating stories and influences and have finally decided it's time for me to start assembling them into works of my own. I have augmented a lifetime of learning and reading with a BA in English, and have written for television and newspaper.

It is the beginning of my second series, which actually takes place in history before my first series, a sort of but not really prequel to The Amazing Morse series. I try to make all my books complete stories of their own so you can pick any of them up without having to commit yourself to something that may never end (I have a definite end in mind, but I see a lot of writers willing to continue a series for as long as readers are willing to pay for the next installment. Seven Stones has a sequel, but it also has a firm ending, not a setup for the next book) . So while I love all of them and find each of them special in its own way, I have made the conscious decision to make Seven Stones the wide door through which readers are most likely to pass :)(less)

My wife keeps a bowl on the kitchen counter in which she places onions to be used for cooking. While packing my lunch yesterday, I noticed an onion that had apparently been sitting there for a long time and had begun growing, a shoot of six inches or so reaching skyward.
“What a futile action,” I thought. “There is no life for you. And now that you are no longer fit even to eat, you will wind u... Read more of this blog post »

“Vulgarity is like a fine wine: it should only be uncorked on a special occasion, and then only shared with the right group of people.”

“Vulgarity is like a fine wine: it should only be uncorked on a special occasion, and then only shared with the right group of people.”
James Rozoff

“Why, if there is anything in supply and demand, life is the cheapest thing in the world. There is only so much water, so much earth, so much air; but the life that is demanding to be born is limitless. Nature is a spendthrift. Look at the fish and their millions of eggs. For that matter, look at you and me. In our loins are the possibilities of millions of lives. Could we but find time and opportunity and utilize the last bit and every bit of the unborn life that is in us, we could become the fathers of nations and populate continents. Life? Bah! It has no value. Of cheap things it is the cheapest. Everywhere it goes begging. Nature spills it out with a lavish hand. Where there is room for one life, she sows a thousand lives, and it's life eats life till the strongest and most piggish life is left.”
Jack London, The Sea Wolf

“But I am I. And I won't subordinate my taste to the unanimous judgment of mankind”
