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

Coming to an End

I’ve decided to end the Senses series of stories.  Love Comes to Light,  releasing March 18, will be the final story in this series.  It was a tough decision, but I decided it was best to bring the series to a close while it was still fresh and the characters interesting.  I didn’t want the quality of the work to suffer.  I can tell you that in Love Comes to Light you will see both Patrick and Ken once again.  While they are not the main characters, they are integral and important secondary characters to the story.  You’ll also meet some … Continued

Got Crabs

I’m at Coastal Magic in Daytona and last night for dinner I went to Joe’s Crab Shack with three amazing ladies.  It was so much fun.  We talked and laughed the entire evening.  I told stories, they shared jokes. I told them all about seventies night on the cruise ship where the fitness center staff played the Village People.  That will definitely get the heart racing.  I also shared Cards Against Humanity nursery rhymes.   We made bad crab puns and innuendo for most of the evening as evidenced by the pictures below.  By the time our meal was over my sides hurt.  … Continued
