Why did I pick Knoxville, Tennessee, as the setting for my debut novel, Curse Me Not? Easy. The town is big enough to have everything from an opera company to a paint ball club, yet it’s small enough for neighbors know neighbors and people to actually go downtown to see a movie or have a martini. It was perfect for my main character, an Appalachian unsophisticate who's recently gained the ability to see auras and the more lucrative ability to clean revenge…Continue

Novels are driven by incredible scene construction!
How a writer handles scenes will make a difference between a manuscript that sells, and one that ends up in the slush pile or the author receiving a rejection letter via email or in the mail.
A scene is a unit of drama in a novel.
The concept of a scene in fiction comes from theater,…

If you are sensitive to critics’ comments, the writing “Rules Police”, experts discussing this issue, with such aplomb that they intimidate, then you must turn a deaf ear to this shrill commentary that says: You must write in a certain style in order to be considered a worthy author.

If you know the meaning of love
you are not likely to have many questions,
in the understanding of what love is,
you will never be worried and
if you have heard what love is all about
You would not fall in love
Because when falling in love
you are building a house
you will live in tomorrow.

To cyber-socialize or not to cyber-socialize? That is the question.
My New Year's resolution for '09 was to finally, seriously and extensively take a look at all the social sites I kept hearing about. My Space. Face Book. Crime Space. Twitter. Blogs. No more letting the info slide by, no more shaking my head and saying, “Who's got time for all this bulls__t?” I would do an investigation, just like my sleuth Christy Bristol. I would finally find…Continue

For a long while, I have putting up a monthly theme at the taekwondo club. I have several posters, large and small, or themes such as Attitude, Courtesy, Respect, and Motivation. I've been through all of them several times. So, for February of this year, I reached out and tried something new. Inner Strength.
I am part of the Karate For Kids program developed by my parent organization. …Continue

Today I have decided that in order to write well, I have to write one day at a time and not book at a time. Keeping focus and writing to a place of fulfillment. All necessary components to my mental state of well being. Peace, Love and Grace.

In 1995, a long, long time ago when Star Wars was the latest cinema rage, I started to pen my first novel called A Brownstone in Brooklyn. I wanted to write a novel and see could I actually put together a storyline that would interest readers…I wanted just one story published and see it in book form.
Well, I worked long and hard with a few…Continue
Life of a novelist is hard work. You get to thinking...this would be a cool career, self-therapy even. Then you become, the author, the blogger, the twitter, the Facebook fan page, Authors.com, Instagram and every other social media administrator. You begin to wonder how will you every get it all done. Believe in your dreams (I tell myself). The journey is meant to grow your aspirations. PUSH. Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.…Continue

The paranormal twist I use in in the book is one that speaks to auras and curses upon auras. The fundamental question I had to answer as I developed the story’s alternate reality was this: While we perceive our 3-D self just by looking in…Continue
