My Stories

I write adventures for those in search of a good story. My novels fall in the Fantasy genre, but many people consider them Sci-fi too. Each story is written with what I look for when I read a book: action, adventure, twists and turns, love, heroes, vicious enemies, fighting (weapons and hand to hand combat). I write because I want to share the stories that are inside of me. I hope you enjoy the adventures as much as I love writing them!

It's almost been a month since my last post!   I cannot believe that it's been so long.  Honestly, August into September tends to be a time warps as it is.  Vacations (camped for 10 days, did the Mackinaw Bridge walk), school (finding the routine that works), sports (coaching for my kids, watching meets, attending games, running practices), work... yea pretty much every aspect of my life.  Now add that to my obsessions with writing and here I sit a month later going where did the last 30days go.  I'm am not complaining, by no means.  Although it would be nice to have more time to write, but there are only 24hours in a day and I do use as many of them to write as I can when I'm not doing the other stuff.

I am pleased to say that I do see the light for The Shadow Dragon series!!  Not that I want it to be over, but I do want it to be published!  It's not going to happen this year, because slowly,  and surely (through the hard way) I am learning the significance of patience. (HA Ha ha...) I did hand off Story 13 to my "editors", got it back, and finished fixing it - which of course allowed me to make it longer.  Partly because of the points that were made and partly because I could see some things that I missed - well you would have missed because I didn't write it in.    I also re-read Not Human (which was solely for fun).  I had been in my car when the song Far Away by Nickelback came on the radio.  Which is the song that helped me breathe life into the images in my head for the ending of that book.  So of course feeling those emotions again I had to read the story.

So there's my last thirty days.  It's not that I haven't been writing, it's because I am writing.  If I can be writing that is what I'm doing, or something that will hopefully make my writing better.  

Came across this quote the other day and it made me smile (I thought "Yep!").  So I went and found this on the web:
