Please keep in mind that in my day job I travel the world extensively and have tasted thousands of different types of coffee, and when I say this is truly the best coffee in the world, I mean it.

So, I snuggled into my little table with my cup of hot coffee and a bottle of soda water and I will sit there for 6 to 8 hours every Saturday and Sunday. People frequently ask where do I find time to write? You don’t find time. You make it. If writing wasn’t so important to me I would be married, have children, exercise, and all those other fun things people do. I don’t do those. I write. I drink coffee. When my hands get sore, when I start losing my train of thought, I stop and start taking notes for the next day. When I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing, I’m thinking about plot and character and motivation. Many call it day dreaming. I wish I were interested in sports. Life would be easier if I were interested in sports. There would be so many more to people to talk about sports with.

I live with two cats. My cats love that I write. They love to distract me when I am at home by sitting on my hands on my keyboard. When a new box of books come in they know that the books are subsequent to the box they get to sit in. The paper wrapping that comes with the box is perfect for bedding and they steal it from the box, drag it away, and make a little nest of it. When I mail out copies of my book to avid fans they love the printer labels, they love the postal envelopes that I use. They play with all of it.

Coffee. Books. Cats. Outside of my day job, that’s it.(less)

Tourist Destinations for Time Travelers - Prelude

"Tourist Destinations for Time Travelers" is the working title. Many of you have asked. It's been nearly a year since the second draft. 2020 was a lot of things, but never unproductive. By the fall of 2021, my goal is to have a next and final draft and possibly a release.

This is a departure from my other works. An avid fan of Science Fiction, I thought that this might be a fun book to write. Inste

A good sequel that explores the oceans and space.

The first book, Children of Time, was amazing with a wonderfully written villain and one of the creepiest endings. The first book was logical and clear. It brought me fear.

This is a solid follow up to the novel Ready Player One. I stress that because the book is far superior to the movie. That won't be a surprise to readers. I was no fan of Armada and found this read to be superior in many ways.

“When you put pain in perspective”—she pauses to find the right words to articulate the sentiment—“it isn’t that we experience it in the moment. It’s that we are always going to have it, always going to carry it with us. It’s the weight we carry with aging.”
Paul Michael Peters, The Symmetry of Snowflakes
