In real life, when we hear of someone doing something bizarre or out of character, we often wonder, “What on earth possessed him to do that?” And, if we know the person, we might even think “That’s not like him.” But, since we know that he did it, we have no choice but to shrug our shoulders, shake our heads, accept it and move on. It happened; it’s a fact. In real life.
In fiction, writers don’t have that luxury. If one of our characters behaves in…

At least, not yet.

Here's the thing: I love to write.
Along with that, I truly enjoy meeting fans and aspiring authors. So, I will take every opportunity to get out there and meet some great…Continue

This is a book for those who love True Crime, Cop on the Beat stories. It gives you a bird’s eye view (or should I say a hidden camera view?) as a Cop makes his rounds.
Exciting, scary, sad and sometimes darn right funny, Fortier recounts some of the calls he was on when a Constable On Patrol (Cop).
Dare I say without having been a cop, that this book could be used by anyone who wants to be a real cop, one who is ready to serve the people and be more than someone carrying a gun…

Whether you've had the experience of going to war, which far too many American citizens have, or have stayed cleared of that ugly business, Cherries is a book that will ring true in many ways. It is a story of the Vietnam War, told by a “grunt” on the front lines. It successfully captures the way it must have been when groups of young males were thrown together, largely against their will, and put into an incredibly hostile environment.
Cherries makes a pretty clear statement that…

I’ve wanted to be a published author since I was a little girl. Like most girls my age, I read every Judy Bolton and Nancy Drew mystery; they were among my most prized possessions. When I was ten years old, I submitted a poem I’d written to my Sunday school magazine. I can still remember how thrilled I was when I saw my name printed under the title. My first byline! Now, many years later (no need to tell how many), I…Continue

What I truly loved about this book was that Endicott doesn’t leave out a single aspect of the growing conflict. We have the angry colonists who think the new tax requirements are excessive and unfair, the English patriots in the colonies who think the dissenters are simply ungrateful, the short-tempered Royal Governor who started out with good ideals and then lost his way, the British tax collectors who will do anything to make money and gain the Governor’s favour, the French paladins who…Continue

Poole builds on concepts designed to help the reader recognize those situations and inner barriers that hinder a person from progressing, or better said, from achieving their desires and goals. The book provides insight into what may be issues in your…Continue

"Dinosaur George" Blasing
I am very excited by this! "Dinosaur George" has written the foreword for The Secret Queen, which will be available in about 75 days.
This is the first of my novels to have a foreword and who better since the third book of The Empyrical Tales has dinosaurs in it.
I contacted Mr. Blasing a while back with the aim of him verifying some of my dinosaur facts. When I go into classrooms, I tell the students that a huge part of writing fiction is doing…Continue

How do writers choose the titles for their novels? When I think of some of my favorite authors, Mary Higgins Clark comes immediately to mind. She often uses the titles of old songs. For example, You Belong to Me, Let Me Call You Sweetheart and All Around the Town. James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club Series starts with 1st to Die and is up to The 10th Anniversary. And, Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone mystery series utilizes the alphabet: A is for Alibi through the latest, V…Continue
