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

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

Release Day Post – Eyes Only For Me – Ronnie

Ronnie has to be one of my most unique characters.  He’s brash, bold, cocky, caring,  sometimes tender, but generous with his things and to Clay, his time.  But there is something else that’s important to remember, Ronnie also has a mental illness.  He’s obsessive compulsive and there are things that go along with that.  He fixates on things, has trouble letting things go and can be a self centered.  But in the story, its Clay who cuts through a lot of that for him, which is a big deal.  For Ronnie, the things he fixates on play in his head over … Continued

Happy Halloween

As some of you know, Dominic is an amazing pumpkin carver.  For the last few days he hasn’t been feeling very well, however last night was Trick or Treating and to him that means pumpkins.  So after he got home from work, I heard him downstairs in the kitchen scraping and carving pumpkins.  Now there are two rules for me at this time of year, either help or get out of the way.  I chose the latter.  He was on a tear and I knew I was going to be in the way.   Instead I lay upstairs nursing my aching … Continued

Alot Happens Between Loathing and Love

When I started writing this story I didn’t know exactly what I was getting myself in for.  I asked myself what would happen if the person who quashed my high school dreams came into my life later in life and I had the power to make their dreams come true.  Would I use that power for good or for evil?  If it was in the course of my job, would I stand up and do my job, or take the weasel way out?  These were all things I got to explore with his book and I’d like to think I’m … Continued
