Investigating Lola

 Lola flippantly tossed her wavy sandstone hair with her slender hand’s backside as Todd’s watery investigator lingo slipped in and out of her ears. Lola desperately needed his help, sure, but the man’s long-windedness was much less inviting than his perfectly even shoulders and dusty five-o-clock shadow.

                “…and the law dictates that I can’t invade his privacy without an explicitly documented search warrant. I’m a bit limited in my scope as to what I can do to look in…

Creating Character Quirks

When you hear the name Sherlock Holmes, what are some of the things you imagine? The distinctive deerstalker hat? The curved pipe, maybe a magnifying glass? It’s a classic image, somewhat created by those who portrayed Holmes on stage. Maybe some remember Holmes playing the violin during periods when a case particularly perplexed him. Or maybe his storing his tobacco in a stocking. Possibly the true fans will remember his use of cocaine.

 

Nero Wolfe brings to mind a large man…

Da Vinci Research Material

I'm an avid Da Vinci researcher, after the watching the slightly off putting Da Vinci Code.  So far I've discovered 

a secret apprentice, ties to a clandestine marriage, and other controversial material.  A couple of years ago I discovered messages in The Vitruvian Man which expanded from their  own wards into more recent messages with the secret coding of a message in the Mona Lisa. 

Not entirely sure what to do with this material though, perhaps someone could give me guidance…

Sons and Daughter

Writing is fun. It really is, I enjoy almost everything about it, even including the hard parts like networking and promoting. One of the best experiences I've had as a writer is watching my daughter when she is writing.

The Redcliffe Trilogy Inspiration

About a week ago I woke up one morning feeling a mild sense of panic when I realised that once I finish editing Love Kills and send it off to the publisher, I will then need to start writing the third Redcliffe book. At the time it was only a vague idea in my head, sort of following on from the latest instalment that I just wrote. Determined not to be perturbed, I put the panic out of my mind and sent out a silent plea to my muse.

After lunch I finally dragged myself away…

AN UPDATE FROM RALPH HAWK



Since I last spoke to you, I've been under a constant barrage of criticism and negativity. And if that statement seems to beg your sympathy, believe me it's real purpose is only the proclamation of life as I find it today; that is, how I am living now with those who are my artistic comrades and equals here on the north bank of our city's river.



And I have mammoth responsiblities here. I'm the de facto leader of a large (and still growing) entourage of creative minded…

A Study in Character

Many things I've learned over the years are self taught. When I worked as a graphic designer at a local newspaper, I was unfamiliar about the software being used to create advertising. Slowly, through the months, I discovered new things to be done with the program others hadn't.

 

So it was with writing. I didn't know anything about outlining, or formatting, or even too much editing, but throughout the years, I developed a system that worked for me. When I started writing my…

Oh no, not another new story!

My lovely husband said to me last night, "You know what the world needs, a new spin on Robin Hood. Like you've done with Lancelot, but maybe less sex."

He hates bankers and see this as a way of righting wrongs or maybe writing wrongs.

Now, the less sex I can't guarantee, it sort of writes itself, but he has a point. We need a new Robin Hood which the next generation can use as a role model. Let's face it can't be any worse than that mash up of…
