Late Summer

I love this time of year.  For us in Central PA, its still warm, but the worst of the summer heat has broken and we start to get outside once again instead of spending our days in air conditioning.  There is one thing that I always lament this time of the year and that’s the fact that pool season is coming to an end. When Dominic and I bought our house, it had a pool.  We never really thought much about having one, but it came with the house so we learned.  Boy did we learn.  Rolls eyes.  We have … Continued

A New Kind of Character – Fire and Snow

In the past I have written stories about many different kinds of characters and some are much harder than others.  Fisher was just that kind of character.  When I conceived Fisher, he had issues, lots of issues, fear, panic attacks, and many others.  At first I didn’t quite understand him and then I realized he was telling me that me he’d suffered a traumatic brain injury in an automobile accident and the pieces fit together.  Fisher had developed a mental illness as a result of the accident.  I fell in love with him immediately after that. Living with mental illness … Continued

Fire and Snow – A Little Background

In Carlisle there are always people who hang around the square in the center of town.  Some of them in groups and others alone, always sitting in the same space.  I think of them as the lost ones.  They don’t seem to have anything else to do and some of them seem to lonely and blank, like the world has passed them by and no one ever sees them.  So with Fire and Snow, I let me imagination work and decided to write one of their stories.     Blurb Fisher Moreland has been cast out of his family because … Continued

Book Covers

One of the questions I get asked all the time is about the covers for my books.    Most publishers give the author limited input on the covers for their titles.  Dreamspinner Press is quite different.  Ads part of the production process, each authors fills out a cover request for, to describe our characters and the type of cover we’d like.  Then the art department starts their magic and they go some initial mockups.  As an author we work with our cover artist until we are both happy with the cover.  Sometimes, the process is very fast and other times it … Continued
