Just another writer of Noir and Fantasy

My name is B.R. Stateham.  Yes, I am sixty-one years old.  No, I don't plan to retire anytime soon.  Yes, I love writing the genres I write.  No, you've never heard of me. Yes . . . someday, baby.  Someday . . .


'Been writing for forty years.  First published novel (sci-fi) came out in 1981.  Thought it was going to be a series.  Wrong.  One and done.   No problem.   Rejection slips don't bother me.  Kept on writing.  So now I have a few things out on the market and nothing to show for it.  (Sigh) Oh, well.


To be honest I'm not in it for the money.  Sure, like everyone else, I'd like to earn a living through my writing.  But not earning a living through my writing isn't going to stop me from writing.   What I really want to do is write a series, or several series, so good that fans of the genres I write in can't wait for the next book to come out.


That's the plan.  That's what I'm working on.

Over on my blog I wrote some thoughts on fiction's anti-hero hero.  Go over and take a look.  See if you agree with me.  Or not.  Find it here:

When writing a short story becomes internal warfare

Posted on May 4, 2011 at 10:34pm 0 Comments


You sit down and start to write a short story. Or a novel. Or a movie script. You slave over the keyboard. You bleed all over your computer screen. You litter the keyboard with cake crumbs and spill coffee . . . or bourbon . . . or Coke . . . everywhere.

It's a fraken war. It's like dragging a nine hundred pound gorilla… Continue
