From beyond the rim

Since everything is relative, each and everyone of us sees all we view in the light of our own perceptions, experiences and even environment. Based on these experiences we make value judgements.

I made a decision that the Olympics were important so as a results my writing production has slowed lately, but with the end in sight I can get back on the ball and make my writing partner happy.

The Daily Chore

You have no doubt heard that writing is a lonely task. Lonely is a state I find elusive since I work at home and never have complete "Alone". On those rare days when the house is empty I find my writing slows and my mind soars thinking up new story lines. Today is one of those days.

In "The Last Dawn of Reckoning" Jake McCauley is called on to stop a terrorist who threatens to do great harm to a major American city. Jake knows this man and in fact is one of the few living individuals who can identify him...if his appearance hasn't been altered. Look for Jake on Amazon (By Oaktree Press) this summer.

Scattered Hearts

Scattered Hearts, an anthology written by the Santa Maria Word Wizards is a collection of short stories and poetry centered on the theme of Valentine's day, but be warned it is not the usual hearts and flowers. It was a fun project. My novella Baby Bottles is included and can be previewed and purchased at

Scattered Hearts is now available on Amazon for download to your Kindle.

It's always about writing

I am often asked to hear a great story idea, but I always say no and refuse to even listen . It's not that I am just rude but I will never know if that idea was mine or something Someone gave me. I would rather keep my mind clear. So if you have a great idea, write it yourself, don't give it away.

Recently I have been involved with getting "The Last Dawn of Reckoning" ready for publication. It has been a pleasant experience. Look for it on Amazon soon by Oaktree Press.

Someone once told Orville Wright his creation woud never fly. Some of those same folks are now saying e-books will never last. The are wrong; e-books are here to stay!
