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.

I’d like to start writing more. I used to be rather creative but it has been a long time. What is a good way to start being creative and writing prose again?
The usual answer is: start a journal. It’s a good way to simply let you mind wander while you get back into the creative stream of writing.
I’ve never had a journal. Tried it several times and it never worked for me. In fact, I hated it.
For me, simply taking a walk does the same thing because my mind wanders all over the place as I move along a trail/road/path. Usually, by the time I’m back home, I have more ideas than I need and can hardly wait to get them down on paper/computer.
So what do you already do that piques your imagination? Gardening? Fishing? Cleaning closets? (Yes, I know someone who finds inspiration while cleaning closets.) Whatever?
The only real requirement for whatever you do is that you do it in solitude so it’ll be your thoughts that come to the fore and yours alone.
