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.


July is coming to an end. I’ll miss it.

Why will I miss July when I’ve known so many of them? Because this is my first July ever being involved in Christmas In July. It’s been fun.

When I first started writing The Christmas House, I had no thought of turning it into a Christmas-themed novel but, as the story played out, it occurred to me that the end would come in the story about the time that Christmas arrived. So I took a leap of faith and turned it into a true Christmas story, even though I figured that would limit the marketability of the book because, after all, Christmas only comes once a year and so people would only read it at that one time.

Then I learned about Christmas in July, a fun event that grows larger each year and The Christmas House fit in perfectly. So I began marketing it as a Christmas story and I’ve been doing so all this month and the results have been gratifying.

Okay, I’m not going to Hawaii for a vacation with the money from July sales, but considering I didn’t expect anyone to read a winter story in the summer, it’s been an eye opener.

So I’ll miss July because I’ll miss talking about The Christmas House and putting out lovely Christmas-type presentations like the following. And, incidentally, what do you think? I like my Christmas-type creation and enjoyed every hot, summer minute that it took to design it:

Christmas in July
