I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.
And I write them.
I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.
I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.
In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.
My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)
Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.

How do I write a good sympathetic character that isn’t the cliché hero?
One way is to pick someone you know who somewhat resembles that character and use that person as a starting point. You won’t stay with the real person long because the character in your story will soon take over and become his own self. But using someone who is real— with real qualities both good and bad— will get you headed towards a character that is also real and has humanity written all over him.
