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 write first person and stay true to that character?

How to write first-person POV and stay true to that character’s personality without letting your own personality get in the way?

You most likely can’t, but don’t worry about it.

Think about it. Readers know who wrote a book without being given the author’s name because a writer’s personality comes through in their writing. If it didn’t, they’d be a pretty poor writer.

The writer’s personality is what gives their writing its style.

So when you write first person, you’re actually writing with two voices. One is the voice of your character and if you know your character that voice will come through loud and clear.

The second voice is yours and your readers want that voice just as much as they want the voice of your character.
