Origins of a novel

Thanks to everyone who purchased DROP OUT, the book continues to affect lives. For those of you who don’t know the origins of the story and its message, I thought I’d share a portion of a biography interview I did when the book was published. Then please decide if it is right for you.


I’ve been a thriller, sci-fi writer for more than twenty years and over that span of time my books garnered the attention of numerous literary agents and publishers. In 2005, I signed with a…

IN The Hills of Malibu by Patti J. Smith


My son, God Bless him, has a habit of reminding me from time to time how I was before I got sober. Thankfully, most of the stories he brings up are humorous ... like the time my ex-husband convinced me of the existence of "dry-land tuna"...  fish that lived in the hills of Malibu sans water (I'm turning red already).  My beer brain grabbed on…

Why Christian Literature is on the Rise

Christians have always been a bit defensive.  From the first there was the whole explanation-thing, “Well, we are believers in the one God, and in His Son too, and yeah, he was crucified but…”  No matter how you put it Christianity always sounded more like fiction than fiction.  But the fruit of faith and the grace of God continued to witness the truth down through…

Wasting Time, Writing Time and Party Time

Well, I wandered up another cul-de-sac by attempting to use Scrivener. There’s nothing wrong with the programme, and I can see how it could be a very useful tool for many writers, but for this writer it proved to be a little too cumbersome. Trying to learn the simple use of just a couple of its features meant that I would spend more time clicking through tabs, files and links in order to get to elements of my manuscript that I would otherwise have to hand and therefore easier to access. So…

10 Things You Need to Know About Virtual Book Tours

By now, most authors know what virtual book tours are or at least have heard of them.  They’re that wonderful marketing tool that should be a must have in every new book’s campaign.  With each new book I write, I’m making a game plan before the book is even published and a virtual book tour is the first promotional venue on that list.

While most of us know what they…

Merits Vs Evils

This collusive politician  who is best in fraudulent, manipulates the Indians, Chinese, Kadazans, Malays and Ibans, for his own greedy, evil, and selfish motive.  He is hurting himself more than anyone else because wherever he is he is always tense. He must be ready to wallop again, at any moment. Isn’t this sort of life stressful and painful? Those most horrendous pain and discomfort were cause by his fixed views, prejudices and biases. This old cobra lost his sensitivity. Modern psychiatry…

Screens will also be needed so that the arc rays will not damage the eye sights of the people around the welding site. The infrared radiation will burn your retina and it will also cause cataracts. Over exposure to arc radiation may also cause skin cancer.


The welders must wear…
