Create a Graph

I was working on a PowerPoint presentation and needed a pie chart graph to represent the results of a survey I wanted to discuss. I used to know how to create such a graph from Excel, but haven't done that in a long time and didn't have the patience to figure out how to do that again.…

It's My Turn to Talk - Blog

It's My Turn to Talk is a blog by Allison Knight and I'm guest blogging on it today. I'm doing something fun by interviewing my own protagonist. This is a great exercise in characterization and motivation for authors. What makes your hero or heroine do the things they do?

How to Double Your Opt-ins by Adding a Hover Ad to Your Site

After many months of procrastination, I finally got around to adding a hover ad to my website. A hover ad is a type of pop-up ad that appears in your browser window from the side or top of the screen, or may just slowly float in front of the page you're viewing, or may suddenly pop in and bounce up and down for a bit. What differentiates a hover ad from traditional pop-up ads is that it's not blockable by pop-up blockers built into web browsers.

The Gong Show

This week Eric and I became the proud parents of a....gong. Yes, you read it correctly. Eric has wanted a gong for a long time, and over the weekend he decided now was the time to stop thinking about making this purchase and actually do it. We searched a couple of sites (including, where Eric does ALL of his shopping). However, he didn't see anything appealing. I had gone gong shopping a few years ago with a…

Vampire Trivia!

In Native American lore there's a monster that makes a vampire look mild - the Shampe only comes out at night and only wants to drink blood - yours!

Emitting an eerie high-pitched whistling cry, this relative of the Wendigo and Sasquatch can smell blood from miles away, like a shark and will hunt you down if you are injured or carrying your kill back to safety.

Fortunately the Shampe gives off a rather rancid odor like a skunk, alerting people to his presence and allowing them…

The other Frank

It's raining and late. I should be asleep, but I'm not. I love this quiet time of night when I have the house all to myself--no responsibilities (except sometimes writing, which is kinda at the fun end of the responsibility continuum), just "me" time.

So I watched about two hours of "Children of Dune" while I very productively wrapped two birthday presents for my son, and came away with the thought that one of the things Frank Herbert (the creator of Dune) did well was create…

Full of Surprises!

This is just a mini update. I simply had to say: I love my web designer . . . I really, really do! She’s fantastic and full of surprises! She already has the new updates posted on my site! I figured I’d see them in a weeks time, but I came home from school to a pleasant surprise. You can now check out the “Fun Stuff” section of my site for activities and things to keep you, or your little ones, busy. Also the “About…

Come Visit Somerset Manor

Travel back to England in the early 1800's and visit Somerset Manor. There you will meet Lark and Jonathon, who has become the new Lord of Somerset after the death of his father. The mystery is why Jonathon's father has willed him to marry Lark--who has been presumed dead for many years--in order to keep the family fortune and reputation in tact. And there is also the matter of his wastrel brother who stands to inherit it all, if Jonathon doesn't go along with the ruse.

To find out…

One Step Closer . . .

HOORAY! My two advance copies of Laura and the Leprechauns finally arrived! I’m absolutely tickled with the final product! It’s amazing to see the difference between the quality of digital printing compared to offset printing. There really is no comparison—offset printing wins hands down. The glitter accents make a big difference too. I’m glad I stuck it out and found a printer that could do the glitter. As of…

Now For The Deep Search


I'm new to the publishing field although I've spent nearly all my life

telling stories; therefore, I'm searching for all the experienced

guidance that can be given. My first novel is in the beginning

stage of being published by Publish America.

All of my poetry, short stories, articles and novel writing express the

thesis that we are divine beings who must use our divine power to help

ourself and others while maintaining a healthly… Continue

Half-Red Skull now available

I am pleased to announce that my 4th novel, "Half-Red Skull," is now available.

"For reporter Fawn Cortez, three disparate threads--a modern-day serial killer, the severed skull of an 1800's Seminole Indian, and a legendary treasure which her father sought prior to his death--begin to inexplicably converge. The breadth of deception that she will ultimately uncover will reveal that those she trusts the most . . . cast the deadliest shadows."
