I’m married, with two twenty-something daughters, two dogs, two cats—in fact, two of everything but wives, and only because she won't let me... I'm a scratch golfer (in my dreams) and a former Mensa member (not because I got stupid, but because I stopped paying my dues).

I've written five published novels and three nonfiction books about computer technology, as well as a nonfiction self-help book for writers called "Frequently Misused/Misspelled Words and Phrases (and how to use them correctly)." I also have two other novels in the works.

Even if you have received nothing but rejection letters, don't give up hope. Stephen King papered the walls of his barn with rejection letters for Carrie before he sold it. JK Rowling kept getting rejections for the first Harry Potter book before she finally sold it. There are hundreds of similar examples of great books that were rejected repeatedly before selling. You may never be rich and famous from writing, but who knows? You might be the next King or Rowling. But you'll never know if you quit.(less)

Usually, if I wait a few days or weeks, eventually inspiration will strike and I'll know how to proceed with the story. But I have two novels that have been at least half-finished for years, and I'm no closer to figuring out how to finish them than I was when I stopped writing. That's life. I expect I'll finish them eventually, but when? (less)

“Zombies and Aliens [were] not something I thought would mix well. I was wrong. Once i started it, I could not put it down although I eventually had to sleep and eat. I breezed through it in a couple of days. What is so great about this is that the author has ordinary people in the stor... Read more of this blog post »
