I owe some thanks to Gavin Atlas, who was in St. Louis this past weekend and sent me this snapshot of The Unwanted at my favorite bookstore, Left Bank Books. And it's facing out, no less! On top of that, if you go over to Chelsea Station magazine, you'll find a...

When I need a break from writing, I like to spend time with my kids. It's not always possible these days because they're off at college or working, but when I get the chance, it's family all the way. So, my youngest daughter and I love to bake together and made these amazing Rice Krispie treats (...

This is the first of a couple of blog entries of my thoughts about the nominees and the nominated works.   I'm in the fortunate position of being able to vote for the upcoming Bram Stoker Awards, a prestigious award given by the Horror Writers Association of America (of which I am a member...

Boy, I'll tell ya. We have a thread entitled The Next Big Thing over at the AbsoluteWriter forum and it's a interesting foray into the crystal ball skill of predicting what the reading world will latch onto in 2014. We've run the gamut of everything to horror to New Adult. It is/was like...

There's a big hubaloo going on. It's getting pretty darn bitter. It doesn't look like it's going to be resolved anytime soon. No, Silly Reader! I'm not talking about Obamacare! I am talking about the recent debate about likable women versus unlikable women in literature/movies/television. Yes,...

I wanted to make something creative and special for my author event this Saturday, and since my book, Two Brothers: Origin, is a young adult, science fiction, I came up with a great idea. First, I took a globe, sliced it in half, and with help from my daughter, painted the inside to look like...

With my second book in the Ramtalan Trilogy, Two Brothers: Heritage, with the editor, I see that my publisher has temporarily reduced the price of book one, Two Brothers: Origin. I love that, because it means more people can snap it up just in time for book two to be released, and be all...

Some might say I live in a fantasy world. Indeed, I do create fantasy worlds in my books.
