3 Day Quote Challenge! And They’re Off!!
I've been nominated for the Three Day Quote Challenge by Erin Burns! She has a wonderful blog in which she reviews books, among other things. She's extra special to me because not only did she read and like my novel LEX TALIONIS, she left reviews for it all over the place. If she wasn't already … Continue reading 3 Day Quote Challenge!

Tantie, Papa And The Mango Tree On Diego Colony
A bit from a story I'm still working on. Funny thing is, I finished another story with the same character and it got an Honourable Mention in the Writers of the Future Contest last year, but for some reason this story is just not cooperating. It won't tell me how to get to the ending, … Continue reading Tantie, Papa And The Mango Tree On Diego Colony
SciFi From Around The World
There's a cool article in the Guardian today for anyone looking for links so they can start reading scifi that isn't default American/English. Scifi from all corners of the globe has always been around, but recently some of those works have been hitting the mainstream, culminating in this year's Hugo Awards, where the Chinese novel, The Three-Body … Continue reading SciFi From Around The World
Excerpt: The Nightward – A Battle Approaches

Sorry I was off for a while. Wasn't feeling too well. Better now and hoping to get back on schedule with everything. The New York Times ran a great piece by Stephen King on prolific writers, which you might have already read. Like him, I think every writer has their own process and their own … Continue reading Stephen King On Stephen King
14 Writers Who Rock
And who happen to be women. Huffington Post has an article about women who write scifi and fantasy and stand head and shoulders above all others. It's not an exhaustive list, by any means, but it is a good place to start if you want to add to your list of great women writers. I'm extremely … Continue reading 14 Writers Who Rock
What Kind of Introvert Are You?
There's a new paper out that discusses the possibility that there are really four types of introversion. Not only that, but people can have more than one kind of introversion. Not only is it an interesting take for understanding people, it might be relevant when it comes to building out characters past the cliches. It's something worth … Continue reading What Kind of Introvert Are You?
Excerpt: IACTA ALEA EST – Mr. Gae Is Expecting You
A little bit of Shalon from the sequel to LEX TALIONIS, to keep you company as you go into the weekend. Framed in that archway, directly across from the lift, stood a hovercar, its dark blue curves iridescent as a beetle's wing. Shalon strolled over to it, careful to keep her body as relaxed as possible. … Continue reading Excerpt: IACTA ALEA EST – Mr. Gae Is Expecting You
