A close approximation, though, is when the writing isn't fluid and I'm not careening through page after page of what feels like the very best of what I can write. At those moments, I try to keep writing. Pick the most interesting snippet of story I know will be coming and try to build out from there. See if it sparks something and connect the tissues of the high points in the plot later when the words are coming more readily and even the most banal happenings can be made important and interesting.(less)

Being used to create something of beauty, that can inspire, inform, and entertain others is a phenomenal privilege.
Along those same lines, I also see writing novels as being somewhat similar to being an explorer. As a writer you get to have the first look at a new world, one you can't help but want to invite others to see as well. At times writing can feel very much like you're just another reader getting an advance copy of a book you would want to read. That may not seem sensible at first glance, but most writers admit there are times the story seems to be writing itself and you're just there for the journey.(less)

Veiled Sun CelebrateLit Tour

I hope the start to this new year finds you well and enjoying a marked improvement to last year. It feels strange to think that the second book in my Tomorrow’s Edge series has been out for about a year now. In some ways I feel like I failed this book. It released right on the cusp of my work life ramping up to the frenetic COVID pace that still refuses to let up. In the ensuing busyness I don’t t

Ever since I read Paranormia, I hoped a sequel would be written. I thoroughly enjoyed the world of book one, which is our world only with eyes partially opened to the spiritual realm around us. I wanted to know what was next for all the great charact

“If fiction and fantasy books are escapism, then let an author write them so as to better equip the reader to face reality by the end.”
Brett Armstrong

“Writing a novel is a bit like being Daniel Boone. An author stands atop a ridge in a mountain range and can generally see a number of peaks in the distance. What lies between those peaks—the dales and glens, rivers, forests, and other features that distinguish one mountain landscape from another... is where the artistry and intrigue of the writing process lives. As the writer sets out into the story, leaving behind those high points—the beginning, a twist here and there, the climax, and, if perhaps a bit indistinct for the distance to cover, the end—entering the vale below, all manner of things can happen the writer never intended or expected at the onset.”
