— T.S. Eliot

It has been a crazy several months and I've neglected my blog shamefully. 

Between 'real' work, finishing Broken Through, fighting with the actual printing and finally launching, there has been little time to sleep, much less blog.

It's finally on the market, and this we...

One of the cool things about being on Twitter is meeting people. Great people, in fact.

I know, Twitter is often maligned as an ongoing spitting match, a political minefield, a place where you pick up followers who have Nothing In Common with you, to put it politely.

After much teeth gnashing and viewing endless photos, here is the cover of Broken Through, beautifully and brilliantly designed by Caroline Dinter. 

Stay tuned for the launch: Sept. 1 on Kindle, more than likely, and print edition sometime in the month. 

If you're u...

 How many words have been written by all these authors? Can't even imagine.

I had a blue, blue week, not so long ago.

I’d prefer not to get into the deeper reasons, but let’s just say I struggle with depression, and the book two thing was not going well. (Things are look...

One day, while still working with Karen Briere, she sent around this incredible quote from Beatrice Warde, American typographical scholar, born Sept. 1900. It rings in my memory; it stands for the passion we feel, we authors and journalists, for newspapers and books an...

This whole Facebook thing got me thinking about Twitter. 

If FB can mess with our heads by sending us all kinds of spam and sell our personal data to creeps, what’s happening on my Twitter feed?

Not a heck of a lot, at least as far as I can tell, since I’m sort of insign...

OOO. Here's the first title design for Broken Through, book two in the Adam and Grace series. I'm starting to vibrate, even though the thing won't be done for months yet. Maybe weeks. Fingers crossed. That is all.

February 22, 2018

How long does it take to write a book? 97,643 words. Eleven months. Don't ask how many hours.

On Feb. 21 at 6:16 p.m. I finished the first draft of Broken Through, and immediately thought I might, um, barf. My legs wouldn't hold me up. It rather came as a shock.

While on...

This (above) is not Adam. But as they say, always use a photo with your blog posts. It is, though, reflective of how Adam is feeling: a little frustrated.

Hurry up, I hear him saying.

He needs a hair cut.

I felt a strange vibration. Yesterday, 6:20 p.m. I'd fe...

I'm being overly dramatic. About the saving your life part. I think.

When I awakened at three one particular morning, as I had for months after a traumatic career ending moment, I was, for a change, not in tears.

I saw a (beautiful) reporter, a (stunningly handsome) cop,...
