READING BETWEEN THE LINES

I heard a quote the other day stating that fiction is more “real” than non-fiction because, in writing fiction, it's easier to tell the truth.



Think about it. If you're writing non-fiction, you have to stick to the facts. There's no way a writer can go inside the mind of the subject and detail how decisions are made. Only actions and consequences are recorded. One can surmise, conjecture, and deliberate, but will never really know the truth.



Fiction writers, like myself,… Continue

Summer Reading



My summer hiatus has extended into all realms of writing, including passing along recommendations. Not that what appears in this blog will make or break a book, but making even one person

Another Cool Review

I met Lori Sanders at the recent book signing at Fair Oaks Mall. She was one of several people who picked up all or several parts of the Hannibal Jones mystery series. In fact, she waited until she had completed my first two novels, The Troubleshooter and Blood and Bone, and started Collateral Damage, before writing to me to say how much she liked my style of humanizing my lead character.



Lori, because you took the plunge with more than one novel I've posted your comments as this… Continue
