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.


How to make a living writing romance novels.

I recently answered a question requesting three pieces of advice for making a living writing romance novels. Here is my answer:

  1. Read, read, read the best sellers in the kind of romances you wish to write. There are many, many sub-genres in the romance field and each has its own requirements. Then jot down between 5 and 10 things that each romance has and when you sit down to write make sure that each book you write includes those same things.
  2. Read the requirements of the publishers of the sub-genre you wish to write in and make sure you have those requirements in each book you write.
  3. Choose one best-selling writer in your chosen sub-genre and figure out how they wrote. Then copy them. Don’t worry about being called a copy-cat because your own writing will be sufficiently different from everyone else’s.
