The actual process of writing has not changed much over the years. It still involves making the time to write and putting one word after another.

My family moved to St. Louis in the early 80s. I was in kindergarten and had to move in the middle of the year. But I didn't mind. Moving seemed like a great adventure. 

I fell in love with everything in St. Louis, from the schools to the people to the local sports--esp...

I didn't want to go to the movies to see it, and my reservations had nothing to do with the film itself. I knew I would cry.

The launch of Invasion has been successful. I have received fantastic feedback fr...

I am sitting in my home office on a rainy Tuesday.

I have just returned from a short vacation in Asheville, NC USA to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had a wonderful time taking the trolley tour and visiting the Biltmore Estate (a place I had not expected to enjoy but...

I grew up in a library. To be more specific, my mother used to take me all the time when I was young and growing up in a lovely place called Fairport, New York. The absolute best memory of the experience is strolling into the towering stacks of books and realizing I co...

​I am between chapters this morning, working on finishing the first draft of Star Runners 6 with my writing companion (my dog) by my side. My deadline is a complete initial draft by July 30.
