  • Something New – Part 1

    Austin Templeton is an actor who looks enough like Matt Smith to make American Doctor Who fans fall in love with him. A cable network decides to do its own Doctor Who-ish show, called The Magician, and they hire Austin as the lead. “Austin!” “In here!” A clipped English accent replied. A portly man in…

  • This Month’s Shows June 2015

    A message from my author pal, Rami Ungar, reminded me that I don’t use this forum to announce my Blog Talk Radio shows and I should. (Thank you, Rami for asking!) Not everyone who follows me here, follows me on Twitter or Facebook, so I am really being foolish not making announcements here as well.…

    I have been challenged by my buddy Rami Ungar to participate in the Love/ Hate Challenge. To do this, I must list 10 things I love, and 10 things I hate. Then I have to challenge 10 other people to do the same thing. (My friends might never forgive me, but here goes!) Thank you,…

    Thank you, Rami Unger, for thinking of me. It really made my day finding your message on my blog. I love being nominated for these awards, because it validates, in some small way, all my hard work. Check out Rami’s blog here. My next step is to tell you 7 random things about myself. I…

  • I Love Dialogue! from Checkmate

    I’m especially pleased with this book. In 2009, I finished my NaNoWriMo novel, The Ninja Tattoo, early and got an idea for another book. I started on it Thanksgiving afternoon and finished it in four days. In addition to my NaNo novel, I wrote Checkmate, another 54,066 word novel. I’m pretty proud of that and…

  • I Love Dialogue! from The Best Medicine

    It’s no secret that I Love Dialogue. In fact, for the last year or so, I’ve been sharing excerpts from quite a few of my books on my other blog Writer Sanctuary.  Since not all of you follow me over there, I thought I’d start sharing over here as well. These will be repeats for…

In that time, Chairman Emmelia Spenser has missed Captain Ben Drexel, who protected her from Riley and his…
