I'm catching up on my somewhat neglected Author page with an update on what I'm currently working on. I just published my second Ann Kinnear Suspense Short as a Kindle Short Read--"May Violets Spring" is a non-traditional Easter story NOT recommended for those looking for Christian lit or those who object to violations of the Third Commandment. : ) I'm putting the final touches on Lizzy Ballard Book 2, "Snakes and Ladders," in preparation for sending it off for its final edit--be sure to put Book 1, "Rock Paper Scissors," on your bookshelf so you'll be ready when Book 2 launches this summer! And please post any question you'd like me to answer on this page!(less)

Secondary Characters You Love (or Love to Hate)

At a thriller writers conference last year, David Corbett called out the movie MICHAEL CLAYTON as an excellent example of development of secondary characters. I finally got a chance to watch the movie, and he was right. (How could you go wrong with the likes of Tom Wilkinson, Sydney Pollack, and a very unlikeable Tilda Swinton?)

He also gave shout outs to KILLING EVE, IN BRUGE, VERTIGO, BODY HEAT, Read more of this blog post »
