I have mentioned before I often use YouTube to provide background music or ambiance. Music has always been important to my writing sessions, but the music plus ambiance has become more important this summer. I love it and end up writing thousands of words before I even...

I was recently asked by a reader how I deal with negative reviews. Wanna know a secret? I don't read many reviews unless they are sent directly to me by a reader.

A reader asked me recently, "So what is Ghost about?" 

I answered, "An assassin in the Star Runners Universe."

How about that dramatic title, eh? 

The release of Ghost: A Star Runners Novel marks four years to the day that Star Runners dropped on Christmas 2014. I have mentioned to people numerous times I had no idea anyone would ever read the book. It was published to keep a pr...
