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.

Do you write your story linearly or do you write chapters as you go and put them in order later?
For me, the answer is —- both.
I plot out a story as a synopsis in a linear manner, pretty much one paragraph describing what will happen in each chapter. But then I go back over the whole thing and, often, move chapters around until they make as much sense as possible and lead nicely to a climax.
