Hello James,
So glad you enjoyed it! I do have another book in mind for this series but haven't begun writing it yet. I have a spin-off series started and the first book will be out in July. After that series, I'm going to dive back in with Ben and Mym. :)(less)

Hello Alissa,
I definitely enjoy putting Dr. Who references into the books. Recently wrote a couple into book 3. The hot air balloon in ITLT was actually not a Dr. Who reference but have to agree that a balloon makes an excellent pseudo T.A.R.D.I.S. (less)

I recently had some questions from an enthusiastic reader who, like many, is also navigating the road to writing a novel. These were some questions that he had for me. I thought I would post the answers up for any interested parties since so many writers struggle with these same issues. If the path I took in navigating them is helpful to any of you, I am happy to share it. I certainly did not g... Read more of this blog post »

I love science fiction stories that let you know what you are in for and then deliver on their promises. A Bridge of Years does that and more. I listened to this book on audio and loved it. The narrator was excellent and the writing style really cap ...more

I have not been a Stephen King fan prior to this, and other than his fascinating craft memoir On Writing I had not read any of his books. I think that is likely to change based on this novel. It was great to read a story and know that I was in the ha ...more

Glad you are enjoying it! I agree. There would definitely be some perks. It would be nice to only be watching the original versions of our favorite films and not the incessant remakes!

Suren Oganessian In the middle of reading the free copy of "In Times Like These" that I won at your class! It just makes me think "Man, I would be so happy if I went back in time to the 1980's; the music was better, the movies were better, everything would be cheaper, my dead relatives would be alive..." I'm only on Chapter 9 though, maybe something bad will happen to make me take that sentiment back...
