One shaved cat

I have a confession to make. We have six cats. That’s right…we’re crazy cat people. Cat horders. Those that fancy the feline. Each of our cats are amazingly different (and do their best to keep me from getting a good night’s sleep). One, in particular, likes to think of himself as the clown of the […]

A lot of irons in the fire

I was talking on the phone with my editor yesterday discussing the plan for re-launching my books. Obviously the conclusion we arrived at was to first re-launch the “Fringe Killer” series in order, followed by the first in my Zombie trilogy, finally to be followed up by Shero. During the discussion that lead to the […]

Gothica update

After much consideration, I have decided I am going to hold off on the publication of Gothica. There is a very good reason for this. Gothica is the second book in the “Fringe Killer” series and it makes no sense to relaunch this book prior to the launch of the first book in the series, […]

Sample Sunday: From Gothica 2nd Edition (to be released soon)

Skip Abrahm was a damn good cop. His unrelenting support of justice helped him to become one of Louisville’s finest. Equally, his unwavering support of his ex-partner Jamie Davenport, along with his sexual preference, gave him short passage to his new assignment. Skip was weaving his way through the crowded Yum! Center. What a name. […]

Sample Sunday: (First rewrite) “My Zombie My”

Blog Entry: 12/04/2015 9:10 am Waking up in absolute darkness wreaks havoc on the senses. There is no way to know what time it is, my body clock is so far off it may never right itself. I could have slept through an entire day and not known it. Fortunately, I hadn’t. As long as […]

Moments that make your heart melt

Back when I was in graduate acting school (Go Boilermakers!) I had a movement teach who served as my first real role model. One day in class he instructed every student to go roam the campus in search of something, anything, that would move us. During that exorcise I happened across a thirteen-lined ground squirrel […]

Tips for a successful author reading

The majority of people can barely stomach the idea of having to be up in front of a crowd and speak. It’s caused great men and women to crumble and lesser men and women to fold in on themselves and whither away. It doesn’t have to be like that. Anyone can speak in front of […]

Looking for blog tour

Very soon I am going to lay down the gauntlet and get professional on the ebook publishing world. Before that happens, I need to find a good blog tour. What is a blog tour? Simple, a writer finds various blogs that suits his genre and goes guest blogs on the site. It’s a win-win for […]

Gothica update redux

I just heard back from my editor she has completed the second half of Gothica! What does this mean? It means it’s close to enjoying a complete relaunch. I do have some work to do on the ending, but that work should be completed so that Gothica will hit the shelves for the re-launch by […]

Where did I find Jamie and Skip?

I get this question a lot: “How did you come up with the main characters for your Fringe Killer series?” Because I get this question so much, I thought I would address it here. It’s a fun bit of trivia that might wind up having readers of this series change the way they interpret these […]

Gothica update

Many of you might have noticed that Gothica has been pulled from the shelves. There is a very simple reason for this. Each of my books is going to get a fairly hard-core polishing thanks to Red Adept. My earlier works have been in serious need of this for some time now. It hasn’t been […]
