Things I try to keep in mind while I am writing:

1. Magic needs to remain consistent and have a purpose. Decide what limitations your magic […]

Who Are Your Protagonist, Hero, and Lead characters?

I was working on the outline I had wrote for my first noveland made a curious little note in the revisions notebook that got me to thinking:

Chapter One Must: Present my world Identify book’s hero/lead/protagonist

After I had wrote that I realized that the three were not neccessarily the same person in my […]

How to invoke evil spirits

Books have a long history of being banned, even burned because of the views that people have about them.

In 2001 the Christ Community Church in Alamagordo, NM burned copies of Harry Potter, along with other books and magazines, because the books were claimed to be “a masterpiece of satanic deception.” Among the books […]

Inspired by writing prompts

Why I enjoy revising my novels, and how you can too!

I’ve been a writer for many years now, but I’ve always just written. It sounds strange, I know, but writing has always been such a relaxing activity for me that I have just wrote, and wrote, and wrote some more.

I have several books that are about the same characters, but told in slightly […]

Why do I write?

I was looking over Twitter a few minutes ago and someone that I began following this morning asked a question that simply cannot be summed up in the small space that Twitter allows, so, I have decided to answer in brief there, and to actually answer the question here on my website.

Nora Roberts vs Plagiarism

I came across something on Twitter this evening that caught my attention.

I went looking for what was up and made my way to Nora Roberts’ website where I found that she had made not a rant, but a promise a few days ago.

Writers are aware of the dangers of others plagiarizing […]

Found old manuscript from 1998

Many eons ago, back in June 1998, I spent the month typing away on a computer that I had borrowed from my sister. As my parents and my sister sat out in the dining room playing pinochle, I sat in my bedroom typing away on a story that would have the working title The […]
