What’s this little nasty-looking plant got to do with [the quiet]? You’ll soon see…
It’s almost the six-year anniversary of my stroke that left me a quadriplegic and ruined my health. Even though it has taken many opportunities away from me, it has given me the chance to finally work on my first and deepest passion: writing. More specifically, writing fiction. Even though it took almost a year toContinue reading “Words”
Those who have read Parachute Island know that children hold a special place in my heart. So, when I read about Cannon Hinnant, I was heartbroken. For those who don’t know who this five year old boy was, I would say look up his name as I won’t go too long about his tragedy. ButContinue reading “Cannon Hinnant”
Just finished the first chapter to my third novel, [the quiet]. I’m doing something different for this. Rather than give away some information about the novel, I’m going to keep it quiet, no pun intended. I will play some music that helped me write this chapter. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/R5WdIcPrLr8
I have a lineup of interviews set up through April of 2021! This is not just fiction indie authors; this will include indie poets and non-fiction authors as well. If you love reading up on, and finding your new, indie authors, then you’ll definitely want to keep your eyes peeled every month. In September, I’llContinue reading “Indie 2 Indie Interviews”
It’s official: I’ve just typed the first paragraph to my third novel!
Something new is coming to this website. Keep your eyes peeled for the next couple of days…
Yesterday, I had a little over 400 views in a day, the most I’ve had since the inception of this site. Think we can reach 500? As always, thank you to all the people who have come by to visit or to enjoy my work. If we reach 1,000 by October, I’ll have something forContinue reading “500!”
Good news! I’ve finally gotten reviews back from my ARC team, and the results have been positive. With a few minor changes, The Valiants is ready to be sent off to a professional editor. After that, it’s just a matter of interior formatting to make it look pretty and a final review of the proof.Continue reading “One Step Closer!”
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on the blog. In fact, it’s been eleven days since I have posted something. A whole eleven days! Now, what kind of writer am I? Well, not to fret; though my health is not the greatest at the moment, I’ve also seen worse in the past. WhileContinue reading “Health”
My apologies for being on intermittently; I deal with a lot of health issues ever since my stroke, and it’s been slightly on the decline lately. I won’t go into too much detail here but suffice to say that I had one hospital visit (no, not COVID) and another upcoming one. On top of that,Continue reading “Absence”

There’s been a lot of interest generated about The Valiants and Parachute Island lately it seems. That’s great! I’m glad to hear that. As an author, I want to provide stories that will help you drift off for a few hours. First, if I may ask, please leave a review, whether it’s good, bad, orContinue reading “Interactions”
…is never done. No matter the number of courses taken or workshops sat in, just like an athlete, the writer has to keep one particular muscle fit and toned. Today, I spent the day sorting through my emotions, going over my five (and 6th!) senses, and learning how to tighten even tighter my sentence belly.Continue reading “A Writer’s Work…”
Got bored early this morning (3 am) and decided to make some music. It’s a little piece I call What If? I’m thinking of making some to accompany stuff so I’ll probably make more down the line. Enjoy!
As a reader, I’ve come across and read all types of fiction. I love getting lost in a book for a few hours. Whether it be horror or classic literature, science fiction or gritty crime, there’s nothing like getting away from the real world.

Well, after the third revision, I’ve begun to send The Valiants off to some of my ARC team. I’m also waiting for the book cover. I should, hopefully, get the cover back by Monday.
