Midnight in the city that sleeps, mostly at night. I sat at my desk in my office, looking over the fingerprints that I picked up that day. They perfectly matched the prints on file for Cody the Crook. Too bad Cody had a perfect alibi, sitting up with his sick mother all weekend. Hard to imagine a lug like him being that tender-hearted.

As writers, we are really good at sitting. We sit at our desks to write, we sit in coffee shops to write, we sit on a couch and watch TV and write, and we sit in comfy chairs for a live interview that will be on the national news later that day. We sit at tables in bookstores for signings, and we sit in our car or bus or train getting around to these places. Read the rest of this entry »

A few days ago I celebrated 19 years of marriage with the only man on this planet who is perfect for me. I am always amazed that we found each other. And terrified at how close I came to not getting to know him for a couple reasons. I would have missed the happiest and most interesting years of my life so far. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m a sucker for a story with a strong father-daughter relationship. I grew up without being allowed around my dad, and I envied those around me whose dads paid special attention to them. My best friend who lived across the street from me was at the top of my envy list. Her dad worked for the telephone company and when he came home, he let her drink the water left in the cooler on the back of his truck. He often saved some cookie or other treat from his lunch to give her. Any questions on why I have food issues? Read the rest of this entry »

I am a huge fan, in many ways, of John Scalzi. I love how often he plays with my brain by not specifying the gender of someone at first, and because they are the captain or the doctor, my conditioned brain is thinking male. And they turn out to be female. Of course, Scalzi is writing in his own future universe, but he still had me spinning when a character that I assumed was human turned out to be not human. Very well done. Read the rest of this entry »

We get so used to reading romances where the characters are part wolf or part demon or all vampire. They could be considered hybrids. When we talk about a hybrid author, however, we are referring to a traditionally published author who decides to self publish, or self published author who is picked up by a traditional publishing house.

I read a lot of eboks and love the fact I can carry so many around with me. But now then a word is left out in a sentence and no one noticed it before the book was punished. Maybe the wrong word slipped in unnotice. So today I want to talk around claire. Ity. Read the rest of this entry »

If you are a writer, you have lots and lots and possibly lots of ideas pop into your head all the time. Will they become a full story? Depends on how deep the inspiration goes and how much time you have. I know I will never have time to write all my story ideas. Read the rest of this entry »

If you have a chance to see the documentary, Love Between the Covers, you really need to see it. No matter what you write, you should watch this amazing film. Have some tissues ready, and then afterward contact me and I will tell you about all the people I have seen face to face that are in this film. Just for bragging rights, that’s all.
