By Brian A. Klems  If you dare to write about less-than-charming characters, you don’t need to always redeem them with an ending in which they see the error of their ways, mend their faults and allow their flinty hearts to be transformed into a choir loft of goodness. You see, Hollywood...

He told me that he and a few of his friends made the cut. They had competed with some of the other boys on the team and they had come in the fastest running a 57 (seconds) in their leg of the 4x4. This qualified him and those other boys to compete in the Stanford Invitational Track Meet. He was...

Thanks to my friend Jane Wilson, I am participating in the Blog Tour, in which authors write about their writing process, and their writing, by answering the same four questions. Jane posted hers last week, March 3rd, at http://redroom.com/member/jane-wilson. Go check it out. And thanks, Jane,...

Photo: Stevie Nicks, from her Wikipedia page.  Read on for the AHS: Coven connection, especially if you haven't seen the show.   It's over now, anyway, and the ending was so disappointing that I didn't even want to write about that.  That's bad, and that's how bad it was.  The...

Photo: Book's hardcover, from robertbparker.net.    The real title is Robert B. Parker's Damned If You Do, but if you read my reviews, you know how I feel about using a name as part of the title, especially if he's dead, so I won't further go at it here.  But...argh...   And...

Photo: Movie's poster, from its Wikipedia page.   Outstanding performances by Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence didn't save this movie for me.  It's worth seeing for their performances alone--especially Adams', who appears like I've never seen her before--but you shouldn'...

Photo: Movie poster, from its Wikipedia page.   This is a very well-acted and -directed film that maintains its tension even though you know how it's going to end.  (It's based on the main character's book, after all.)   Paul Greengrass, director of United 93, a couple of Bourne...

We're thinking about Elmore Leonard this week. You may say what you will about the nature of his stories, but his characters were captivating, his writing as near impeccable as can be.           The link below takes you to a few writerly teasers by Leonard, some of the...
