If you are like millions of people – as I am – then you spend many, many hours on the internet, either related to what you do for a living, or just in a recreational way.
Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are just a few of the popular websites so many of us gravitate to on a daily basis, but, of course, there are dozens more out there to keep us busy.
Why, you may be asking yourself, am I even bringing this up in the first place?
My response is that, with each passing…Continue

In this new year, when it's time to reflect and renew ourselves, it may be helpful to think about whether or not you're a victim of emotional abuse and are suffering the pain of its consequences - Complex PTSD.

The Son of God stood up from his throne and began to speak. The violins in the background continued unabated.
"Do you feel powerful now? What do you think of your puny powers you've used to build yourself up in your own eyes? Do you still feel wise in your values clarifications? Can you create your own morality apart from us? Can you know The One by looking in the mirror? Can any being…

We are now two weeks into 2014, and it is a good time to gauge where you are, as far as new year’s resolutions are concerned.
Millions of people vow to start each year by working out, eating healthy, quitting smoking, etc., but the majority give up on those commitments.
Why is this so?
Well, I am certainly no expert, but can only speak for myself.
First of all, I don’t even make any new year’s resolutions, because, quite frankly, I live the way I want to…

Here is a short teaser from my latest novel…coming soon!
…a shadow came and caused chaos across the land. No one knows where it came from. It passed over the valleys, through the villages, across the rivers and over the mountains. As the shadow passed, it whispered. Whispers were heard in peoples’ homes, causing troubles to stir between family members. Husbands fought with wives, Mothers with daughters and fathers with their sons. Brothers fought and sisters envied…Continue

The number of great indie books out there is astounding – beyond what I think most people truly understand. I’ve been in this business long enough to have learned that the legacy publishers don’t always pick the greats, which leaves more for the discerning public. Every author that I have added to my “lifetime favorites” list in the past 2 years has been an indie author. The general public, they don’t quite get this yet. I think that when indie “packaging” meets a professional standard, that…Continue

y choice of science fiction is intimately related to my late blooming as a fiction writer. Science fiction and fantasy books belonged to my youth. I abandoned them when I became a “responsible adult.”
As a result, my inner writer still thinks she is twenty-something.
It is not happenstance that most of the characters in both WARNING and CEL & ANNA are young. In the follow-up novel, which I will probably release in episodes, I regress even further: the main character is a…Continue

I’ve run the gamut in writing – novels, short stories, plays, essays, profiles – but, as a way of attracting attention, I’ll focus on just two works. One of the novels concerns the life and art of a professional outdoor photographer. Photography, of course, is a very common expression of the…Continue
