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.


Which is more difficult to write, first or third person?

Is writing in the third person more difficult than writing in first person? Depends on what you’re talking about.

Third person narratives can be more wide-ranging than first person. They can show more people, more events, more everything. But, at the same time they can seem more distant and, therefore, less interesting.

First person is immediate, personal, immersive, so the reader can almost crawl inside the narrator’s mind. But, because they ONLY see the story through that one character, the story that’s told is limited to what that character sees, hears, etc.

Both have their up-sides and their down-sides. The writer should think about the story they wish to tell and decide which narrator works best.

One response to “Which is more difficult to write, first or third person?”

  1. Hello Florence thanks for sharing that information. I think that mainly write in the first person. I might give writing in the third person a go.
