I love stories.

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.


Harvest time for writers

As a writer, I know how important being organized is and when this time of year arrives, I always feel that itch to get things figured out.

My favorite season as a writer is winter. Yes, I like spring and love autumn’s colors and the cool breezes that make me feel more alive, but there’s something about winter.

I think it’s because I’ve gone through that organizational period that seems genetically connected with the harvest season — taking what’s been growing in my mind while the hummingbirds and insects flew around my head on the deck and putting it all into some kind of coherent order — and am now ready to get going. To start writing that next book. Or series.

So I love back-to-school time and I find myself looking ahead to the coming change of the seasons, getting excited about Halloween, and every time I pass an aisle of school supplies in a store that feeling grows!

Because something about new pencils, folders, staplers and more makes me feel like I’m about to really get myself organized, and fresh boxes of markers and colored pencils have me feeling the creative itch.

And, yes, this year is no exception. Every yellow leaf on the ground beyond the window of my desk with its computer waiting to be used and every little kid perusing crayons at Walmart makes me just a bit more excited.
