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.

Question: What should a writer know about a story before beginning to write?

What should you know about a story before beginning to write? The answer depends on what kind of writer you are.

Some writers prefer just a vague idea that grows over time as they write and dig deeper into the story and their characters. Others want or need an outline to keep them on track.

Generally, those who create an outline before starting get their books done faster than those who flesh out a vague idea over time because, as the story progresses they don’t have to go back and redo things that must be changed to match the changes that happen as the story fleshes out in their mind.

But it all depends on the writer.

What kind of writer are you or would you be if you were a writer?
