Cast of Characters
I am NOT one of those people who wonder why they have a TV
because they never watch it. No…not me. I enjoy my entertainment in many
forms…and I immerse myself in a fair amount of television. I have current favorites
of course, and not surprisingly that list...

WRiTE CLUB 2015 - The Finals
This is where it all ends...with two
writers...one ring...and a solitary crown. Who do you think will make an impression on the judges and be
the one left standing? Here's an interesting note - last year all 12 of our preliminary judges included just one wr...

Can a man of few words...write a successful novel?
Introduction
Continually trying to answer the question...can a man of few words write a successful novel?

I'm a Mystery/Thriller/Suspense writer from small town USA who struggles everyday to balance my passion for prose against the need to be a full-time bread winner. Finding ways to devote more time to my writing is the challenge, but for now all I can do is follow this tug at my heart to wherever it leads. I'm here primarily to soak up all the knowledge I can from the writing-centric blogosphere, but I'll do my best to contribute by thinking of new and innovative ways to churn the writing pot.
