There is a distinctive change in my signings these days: I'm actually making money.
Most of us who write never talk about the pay, which is usually abysmal. We write because we must, and we write because we have something to say and want people to hear it. Money is nice, but no one being realistic expects to make a fortune.
Most of my signings over the years have ranged from quiet to excellent: before this year, probably the best one took place several years ago at the Borders…Continue

Since I'm involved in martial arts, I write a series with a character who is a taekwondo school owner as well as a private investigator. Yes, she carries a gun, but she relies on her martial arts skills more often.
Two challenges I have in writing this series are 1). to create scenes where my main character, Mallory Petersen, can use her skills and 2). for her to use a…Continue

Next week, from July 25 through July 27, I'll be signing my books at the annual Bookstock Literary Festival, held in Woodstock, Vermont. The event brings together literary notables (former U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins this year), Vermont writers and publishers, and, most importantly, readers.
This will also be the first public signing of my newest effort, "Terror Strikes Downtown," in which crime reporter Ace Herron investigates the causes of a series of explosions which tear up…Continue

Many of my crime novels are in unabridged audio book format, published by Isis and read by the very talented actor and voice artist Gordon Griffin.
They have received some lovely reviews including this one below.
Dead Man's Wharf Audio Book Review
Gordon Griffin's delivery enhances the story's setting, the Solent area of the south coast of England, with its atmosphere of mist and the scent of the sea. As gruff Inspector Andy…Continue

NOTE: So, I should point out here at the beginning that I've decided to go with the title Chapters for this series of blog posts. I suppose nearly any of the stand alone posts could fit under this category, but I think I'll try to keep these with where there is a humorous complaint or comment. Searching the web I've discovered several other sites to tap when this current crop, originally listed back on 4/25,…Continue

PERFECT PEACE is the second novel of my PERFECT WORLDS series, and it’s also my longest novel to date, logging in at around 156,000 words. Not only that, it’s the single seed that the whole projected series grew from.

I have two titles already completed and e-published, a third underway, and a fourth still in the planning stage, but today I think I’d like to talk about the first in the series, PERFECT DAY.
The whole PERFECT WORLDS project began when I…Continue
