Whether beating deadlines or beating characters, each week they share their thoughts on reading, writing, plot, voice and all the sordid junk that goes through a writer’s brain.

The Frame That Holds The Art

Remember when you read “Heart of Darkness” and it opened with Marlow sitting on that boat with those old guys and how he started telling them that story of how he went up the river to find Marlon Brando?



And how about that book that was letters Robert Walton wrote to his sister about this weird doctor called “Frankenstein”?



And that book Washington Irving put together from that colorful guy called “Crayon” with all that stuff about Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van… Continue

Sensitive Artist

I stay home

Reading books that are beneath me,

And working on my work,

Which no one understands.

Twenty years ago I was in Shreveport having dinner with King Missile. A few of us from the college radio station, KSCL, took the guys out for seafood on the south part of town, down around 70th Street on that stretch between Youree and Clyde Fant.

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.

I'm ready to buy drinks when I see Hunter Thompson on your favorite list. I worked for the LA Times back in the 70s, and Rolling Stone was not a publication we were supposed to be reading in the office. But those early Thompson pieces, Fear and Loathing, etc., were passed around like contraband.

Hey Steve,

Received my MFA from University of Florida in 2000, and started teaching at LSU a few months later, so 2000.

Well,. Steve. Now that we're friends we need to discuss how each of us can steal a Pultizer from someone.

Thanks Steve. Welcome to crime space. Glad you liked the story. It's a bit different but was fun to write. It's easy to get repetitive in crime fiction so breaking out of the box is good exercise.
