Location, Location, Location by Tim Smith

Like many authors, I tend to write about things that are in my comfort zone. That’s especially true when it comes to choosing a setting for my stories. Here’s where it gets tricky for me, though. I live in southwestern Ohio (Dayton), but the majority of my fiction takes place elsewhere. Out of the 30 books I’ve released, only 3 were set in my adopted hometown. It isn’t that there’s anything dull or unattractive about Dayton, but when I’m writing a mystery/thriller that’s heavy on…

Playing Favorites by Tim Smith

I read a list compiled by a film fan site of what they considered to be the 100 Greatest Films of All Time. I don’t know what criteria they used or who they polled for their results, but I was surprised that I had not seen a fair number of them. Admittedly my taste in movies leans more toward popular entertainment versus “artistic” filmmaking, but I appreciate innovative accomplishments like “Citizen Kane” or “2001.” I decided to put together my own list of 10 Favorite Films, in no special…

Truth Wins: John 14:6, Proverbs 12:22 KJV

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight (Proverbs 12:22 KJV).

God laid on my heart to write to you this morning, reminding everyone that truth is still truth; it will always be the truth and win.

Why does truth triumph? It's because truth is a concept and part of God's very nature. No…

Solar Warden: Book Four-Skinwalker

Solar Warden: Skinwalker by Peter Fuller is the fourth book in the series. The book starts off with a bang and wham you're heading straight into the battlefield! The book is an enthralling sci-fi read about aliens and more! We've probably read a lot of stories and assumptions about aliens and read a lot of books on them, but hearing it from Peter is a different experience altogether.…

Sunshine Laughing - The Poetry of Anna-Marie Fuller is an ode to Anna Marie's talent, faith, life and poetry in more ways than one. The foreword is a love letter and one of a kind by her husband that's moving and gives hope that love still exists in this jaded world.

One Way Out (Nick Seven Book 9) by Tim Smith

One way out by Tim Smith is an entertaining and thrilling read. This is my first book by this author and I absolutely enjoyed his fast-paced and entertaining writing style.

I loved the sly Lauren Smith, who though was tired and scared, still stood her ground and did not let go of her morals or exploit her…

FEATURED BOOK: Sunshine Laughing - The Poetry of Anna-Marie Fuller

For her degrees in education (she graduated with two), Anna-Marie took numerous philosophy courses, at which she excelled. Her skill at poetry reflected her superior intelligence and depth of understanding of many difficult…

What's Your Genre? by Tim Smith

One question I’ve been getting lately is “Why did you choose the genre you write?” For those who don’t know, my focus is contemporary mystery/thrillers and crime fiction, with some romance thrown in. I chose this genre because it’s what I like to read. I originally became a fan of pulp fiction mysteries from watching old film noirs on TV. I’d see something like “Double Indemnity,” “The Maltese Falcon” or “The Big Sleep,” then seek out the book at the library. If I liked it, I’d make my way…

Jim's Pterodactyl: And The Tipham Vampire by Andrew R Williams

Jim’s Pterodactyl by Andrew R. Williams was an interesting, entertaining and funny read. The story revolves around Ollie the Pterodactyl or "Ropen: as they're called there.

I have read quite a few books by Andrew and picked this one up immediately once I saw it. Jim is delivered an egg by mistake and told to discard it but doesn't have the heart to do so. What happens after that forms the crux of the story.…

Zen and the Art of Flirting by Tim Smith

I love writing humorous flirting scenes in my romances. There’s something sensual and fun about two people engaging in verbal jousting when they feel that initial spark and decide to test the waters. Sometimes you can radiate more heat with a few lines of suggestive dialogue than with a paragraph of in-your-face eroticism. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.


Flirting is all part of creating sexual tension with your characters. It’s defined as “trying to attract…
