Remington Steele
Now that’s what I call a name. Just say it out
loud…Remington Steele.   It just rolls off
your tongue, doesn’t it? And the name was so perfectly suited for its intended
purpose. For those of you who might be unfamiliar, Remington Steele was an
American tele...

An Open Letter to my Future Agent - Revisited
I penned this letter and posted it here June of 2011, and I thought it appropriate to re-post it now.  It's scary how much of it turned out to be true. This is dedicated to Sarah ...my new Agent! Dear Mr. or Ms. Agent, I can't address you by your proper nam...

Existing Between the Yin and Yang
It's time to get things back on-track.  And what does that mean...you ask? Well...for me...on-track is a state where there's balance between me and this wonderful blogging community. I've not enjoyed that for quite some time. The reason I haven't can't be b...

Six Guaranteed Ways to Boost Your Sex Hits (Oops, I Meant Site Hits)
Let’s
talk about traffic.   No, I’m not talking
about a jam up on Interstate 45 or how many red lights you have to sit through

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.
Education
  • LSU
