All My Books Are Belong to You

I could write something to tell you about my books,  or I could just attach my prepared marketing materials, which say the same thing. Guess which one I’m doing here. Each of these books is available from Amazon for your reading pleasure now! Go to my author’s page (https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005O52SDS) to find easy links to purchase…

Dirty Writer’s Secrets #1

I am a writer. As such, I’m expected to be slightly nerdy and do all of the things writers do. Granted, the specifics of those things change over time. Writers are no longer expected to be alcoholics (most of those died) nor are they expected to chain smoke (likewise). It is still acceptable, though no…

On Being a Writer: 1 – In It to Win It

Success in writing, as with any other vocation or avocation, is restricted less by “talent” than by focus. Now, I know that probably differs from conventional wisdom and may be quite a different philosophy than is taught in literature class. After all, we are taught artistic hero worship. We are given the catechism of the…

In the coming months, I will be re-releasing all of my old novels, starting with my Sci-Fi adventure, Hard as Roxx. All of them have been revised.

She’d stopped to flash me a beatific smile, holding her rainbow flag at…

Inmigrante

I have my own theme music. Were it to play aloud, I’d be sued, most likely, by Led Zeppelin. Ah-ah-ah-AH… is how it begins and in my head, mi guitarra es un hacha real cutting through bullshit and misspent walls meant to keep me out but in actuality, only trapping the hatred within. I have…

A Song for Paterson

I watched the movie, Paterson, on a Sunday night. It was the story of Paterson, driver of the Paterson 23 bus in Paterson, New Jersey home of William Carlos Williams. It was not lost on me that the star of this quiet movie was named Driver, Adam, to be precise. Adam, the first person we…

The Little Burgundy

Those of you who know me from my photography know that I’ve not been around much. That’s in part because I mostly post photos to my 500px account, but its more because I’ve been busy getting back into the swing of publishing my books. Since I pulled all of my books from sale around three…
