When asked why he writes under a pseudonym, he explains it this way, "My birth name was John Charles, but shortly after I was brought home, my parents changed it to Larry. I never got the real reason and I still have that original birth certificate." When he decided to write and publish, he chose to use his birth name - John Charles.

Hi Maryann,

There are two John Charles authors listed in Goodreads and my new book 'Zero Warning' was included in the other author's profile. Thanks for your question as it tipped me off to the error.

I've emailed the Goodreads Librarians asking for a correction. Hopefully they will make the correction within a couple of days.

'A Cold Summer Sky' is free on my web site johncharlesbooks.com and is not included on Amazon so I'm not sure how to show it on Goodreads. Let me know if you do, please(less)

Yeah, that sounds opposite to writer's block, but it's really not. Staring at a blank screen isn't going to get your mind stimulated. Writing will.

So on those rare occasions when I haven't a clue, I simply look at my outline and start writing. Usually within a few hundred words I'm back on track.

One very important thing for me is my outline. I always develop the book first. I have a very extensive development process that allows me to put the entire book together in minute detail prior to putting one word into the first chapter.(less)
