As writers, bad days can turn into opportunities for story content. So, feel free to use any of my experiences in one of your…Continue

According to recent statistics, men have all but stopped reading fiction. Do they watch great television? Yes. Do they read non-fiction? Some. But the novel – that great interior journey – seems to have been lost to them.
It wasn’t always this way.
The path from boyhood to manhood used to…Continue

Crime authors get to research all sorts of interesting things and last Saturday I spent a fascinating morning at the Fingerprint Bureau at Hampshire Police Support Headquarters at Netley, UK, learning how the fingerprints taken at the scene of crime and of people in police custody are identified. Although I'd researched this before and have had lots of advice from the Fingerprint Team I went there specifically to ask questions that relate to the…Continue

Just finished 'Bandits", a real page turner. I didn't realize Leonard wrote 'Get Shorty' and 'Be Cool." Both were major motion pictures with John Travolta and Danny DeVito. (DeVito produced both films.)
Thuglit 8 is the latest installment of the series and another hard hitting anthology of eight stories that portray life on the edges of society. If you want to feel good about humanity you should look elsewhere for your reading material. Or, read Thuglit 8 after donning a pair of rose tinted glasses and loading your favorite shotgun.
After a brief intro by Todd Robinson, the stories begin with “McFerrin and Black” by Buster Willoughby. Working at…Continue

It is a very familiar plight for just about any writer. James “Jim” Trevathan wants a raise and after twenty years he doesn't think it is unwarranted. He is a writer for a magazine edited by Warren Jukes. Jim has been placing stories nearly every month for over twenty years and still gets only 5 cents a word. He wants and deserves more.
Editor Warren Jukes isn't prepared to pay more. In his mind there is no need. If Jim wants more money he better produce more stories each…Continue

Have you ever looked at that classic Norman Rockwell picture of Thanksgiving where the bird is about to meet its end at the utensils of all the happy family at the table and seen something sinister going on? What might possibly lurk behind those smiles? Is a smile on one or more at the table just a little too forced? Maybe you think the picture is fine. Maybe your own family is a cause to contemplate a little holiday murder. You get the family you are born into, but who says some of them…Continue

Graham Winston has a plan to revolutionize what it will mean to be a prisoner in Massachusetts. Because the Governor and a number of other key political people are on board with it, technology will be used to rehabilitate prisoners while also saving the state tens of thousands of dollars.
Whether the plan is ethical or morally right is another question. A question Dr. Graham Winston isn't at all prepared to answer. Especially since he is cheating on his wife with a beautiful…Continue

Have you heard the saying that free publicity is the best publicity? Well, after spending tons of advert dollars, I found this saying totally true. So, if you're an author, have a book or book related business that could use some FREE promo, I may have an opp for you. On a prepared 15 - 30 second pitch (the industry calls it a pop or drop...shout-out), you'll be able to state your name, book, biz in exchange for mentioning my film production. I'm legit, above board so I'd need your…Continue
