Even if you’re not writing today (yeah, I admit it, I’m not that dedicated), I hope you’re full of ideas for the brand new year ahead of us. Looking forward to […]

Storming’s Launch Day! Win Prizes!

Time to get this party started! Today is the Launch Day for my fourth novel Storming, a historical/dieselpunk mashup that is dear to my heart for a lot of reasons: 1. I had probably more fun writing it than I have any of my other books. 2. Which makes sense, since I think you’ll find it the most objectively “fun” story […]

Happy Thanksgiving, Wordplayers!

Happy Thanksgiving, Wordplayers!

Today, the United States celebrates Thanksgiving, which means I get to take a moment from the helter-skelter of life and reflect on everything I’m thankful for.

My Next Novel Coming Soon! Storming: A Historical/Dieselpunk Adventure

I spend probably two-thirds of my time on what I call “business” stuff–working on this website, putting together non-fiction books on how to write, and doing webinars. And I love that life. It fuels me, it engages me, and it fulfills […]
