James Michener Didn’t Have One, Either
I just finished reading “The Shocking Slaughter of Africa’s Wildlife” in the UNESCO Courier (A publication of The United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization). Destruction of the animals’ natural habitats is described in tragic detail.
We’ll take the girls before it’s gone, I decided. A few weeks later the five of us were on the plane to South Africa. (The five: my husband,…Continue

I’ve had this question posed to me recently and I actually had to stop and really think about it.
How many characters are too many to kill off in a thriller novel?
Is there a minimum number of murders to a thriller novel?
My first answer was… I’m not really sure. I don’t think there is a special number of appropriate deaths for thriller or suspense…Continue

I am undoubtedly an oldhead. I can remember so far back that people used to write on stone tablets, animal skins and then on parchment paper. My point in this is that I also remember reading stories like the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, The Executioner, The Death Merchant, Nick Carter and Encyclopedia Brown. Every week when I went to the library I would try to find a new installment in a series I was following and just enjoy it, devour it and look forward to the next or perhaps finding a new one…Continue

I have been away from the internet it seems like forever, but in reality just since last Friday, and in this day and age that is forever isn’t it? Thankfully the novels I have to giveaway have survived the hurricane and tornado that breezed by; I put them up in a safe place, and now I need to bring this contest and giveaway to a fun and fulfilling end. I have 5 of Jeff Abbott’s “Adrenaline” novels to give out and am looking forward to making some people happy.
To that end, just do a…Continue

Just to make sure I touch the bases with this and do this incredible novel justice, I just want to make sure that you know I did have a Q&A with this author on my blog last week. Feel free to hit the archives from last week and enjoy the read, he gave some really good answers to my questions; basically he did the best he could with what I threw at him. He hit all the questions out of the park for home runs; I wanted to post that before my take on his work. I was hoping to gain more…Continue

Hello everybody! Yes, I am still alive and so are my wife and kids. A “Funny” thing happened on the way to experiencing an earthquake, a hurricane and a tornado all in the span of four days. Why is that “Funny”? Well let’s see, I can really write pages on this subject. In fact I have, and they are in the able hands of Big Daddy Abel the guy that let me jazz with him on “The Edge of Cataclysmic”. The Author’s Lab/Collaboration story just wrote itself for me. I started with the flood we had in…Continue

The other week, having exhausted all other avenues for publicising my work, I suggested to my husband we have a reality television show to publicise my novels. He said, 'It would be a pretty boring show.' He's right. But that does not stop anybody else from having one, does it? And unlike most people who have reality TV shows, I'm pretty certain I'm not an oxygen-thieving waste of space.
I've not long completed the first draft of my next novel, but I've put it in…Continue

Yep, I’ll admit it. Hard work. That’s what it is. You have to think as a child, put yourself in a child’s place and always be aware of the child within yourself. That’s the tricky bit.
And then, of course, once you’ve decided on a wonderful, fun and thought provoking plot, one thousands of kids will want to buy and keep forever, it’s time to put together that puzzle called a children’s book. It needs to be fewer than one thousand words and less really with the…Continue
