When I write, each new chapter feeds off of the previous chapter. The action of the story comes from what had happened before. The story should write itself. You job is only to find the words. If you write 1000 words a day and feel that you can write more, then do it! If all you can write is 500 words, consider that day a success. On days you can't think of a thing to write, go back and read the chapters that you wrote for inspiration. (less)

The Wolf's Moon (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: The Wolf's Moon is an adventure thriller set in the heart of the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. This action-packed thriller tracks a mysterious beast, stalking the innocent people in the town of Maple Hills. The main character, Mark Lansdowne, relentlessly tracks the beast as it stalks the town, only to find out that it has been extinct for literally thousands of years. Mark Lansdowne's past provides an element of mystery in itself, enabling him to hunt as does the beast. A subtle romantic theme is woven throughout the adventure as Mark Lansdowne pursues the beast at his own peril.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
