Many times I am asked where do the ideas come from, and I have been known to give a number of answers.  The truth is the chore is creating a group of characters who then come alive and tend to write the story themselves.

I know this sounds strange but any fiction writer will tell you that once a writer creates na group of people for his/her book thew come alive.  I can interview them, get answers, event elicite comments on world affairs.  They are very articulate sometimes..

My latest is "The Last Dawn of Reckoning" and is now available in paperback and kindle.

A New Dawn

Morgan and Darcie who you met in "ICE". are now hot on the investigation of a crash of an aircraft where the only person found alive at the crash site can not remember how he got there or who he is. Senators, millionaires, and street gangs all come together to make an exciting new novel "Meltdown". Coming soon.

The entire business of publishing, and reading for that matter, is in a state of transition. Where we will end up is not clear but for sure change is coming. People do not read as much as in the day. There is TV, all kinds of "Pods" and cell phones to distract and entertain. The out come is uncertain but I am happy that I got into e-books with "The Last Dawn of Creation" which is still available on Amazon as is "ICE" and "Scattered Hearts".

Who knows what technology lurks in the mind of some fourteen year old out there just waiting to spring forth.

Now I am in a mess. I am working on two novels at the same time. Not only is that a mess it is plain stupid.

In defense I must say that I had this idea that had to get out and get itself on the page. I have never been without an idea it is only laziness that slows me down

Summer Daze

This is a time when my life was formed and I find I often refer to these days in my writing. History is important but not necessarily of interest to everyone. A writer has to work hard to remain neutral. We are the product of all we do.

Book Signing

One of the great things about being an author is when I get out speak to a group of readers. The feed back can be like fuel to a jet engine. I have an event coming up at the Morro Bay Library on June 29th (10 - to noon) If you are in the area come on in join us.

Sellling Books

I have been so busy with "Ice" that I have neglected this blog but I am now back to working on "Meltdown" and it is moving right along.

Morgan Garret is sitting here with me now so I will ask him what "Meltdown" is about?

"Meltdown is looking to be easily as good as "Ice". Darcie and I are working out some of our problems. I've been off the booze for a while and, well that's good. I'm working for Senator Scarsdale and we have an interesting thing going on. This guy has crashed a plane or maybe not, and he has no memory of th....Okay i'll let them read the book."

Good Morgan, well good luck to you on this one.

Now there goes a special kind of guy.
