-The western, what is the deal on that? Where did that come from?
At the heart of every western a man or woman faces danger, hardship, or overwhelming odds. It’s a timeless theme of courage, especially when their quest takes them into the vast unknown, where they must face the elements and other enemies head on, with little more than a horse, a gun and meager supplies. People always tell me they don’t like westerns, so I thought, why not create the type of western people…Continue

Hey, I didn’t post this early today; I am a bit whooped on from a busy weekend. My youngest daughter had her birthday this weekend, we had a houseful Friday night, and then last night we were partying with Big Daddy Abel, author of the Open Mic series, and the Amish Outlaws at the Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pa. The houseful of people and the birthday celebration were nice; I love having the family around. The concert was intense and jam packed as they turned people away at the…Continue

I saved a toddler’s life yesterday. A little girl I didn’t know named Bella. She was, is, I suspect, just a bit shy of two years old and has soft, brunette curls that bounced on her shoulders as she broke free from her mom and darted at high speed down the sidewalk of a crowded suburban city street. She was impeccable dressed in her navy blue coat and had fast, patent leather adorned feet. I will never see her again, and I only know her name because I heard her mother call…Continue

My weekend blog post is titled :
Toilets and timid women.
Now as you might have gathered, I’m a fan of the Regency. However…and it’s a big but…I wouldn’t want to live there. The reason (or one of them…) the lack of flushing plumbing! I couldn’t be doing with chamber pots, closed stools and ceespits…give me u-bends…Continue

One Crazy Summer is different than my typical read. In certain ways, One Crazy Summer is about experiences which anyone can have. In other ways, One Crazy Summer is one particular time, place, and situation. It is the fictional experience of three sisters during the 1960's African-American revolution.…Continue

I received a nice review on my latest novel, "The Last Radiant Heart" from Galand Nuchols of the LoneStar Nightwriters and also the author of "Dragon Hatchling". I'm tremendously pleased to share it:
"The Last Radiant Heart will capture the imagination of those who dare to examine the possibility of parallel universes and what could happen if a man were gifted with the ability to travel between them. A must read for science fiction lovers. Before the end of the tale,…Continue

It occurred to me the other day that my three major writings, a full-length play called “My Lady’s Hand”, a novel “Riversong”, and my current manuscript titled, “Duet For Three Hands” are all about the same thing. A devastating tragedy occurs, leaving my main characters hopeless, lost, terribly sad and with no choice but to start again, which they do.
One doesn’t have to spend too much time with a therapist to understand why.
It was the mid-nineties. My mother was fifty, at…Continue

One of my esteemed writer friends threw this question out to me today. Can a heroine be too strong?
Without going into too much craft speak and having you all glaze over, here's my take on it.
No way. No way in fiction, no way in real life. Heroines must reflect and portray real women. Life is hard after all, a lot of the time. But I’ve never known any woman to give up even when she had every right to. I’ve observed them all my life, women who are stronger than I think…Continue

Tennessee Williams would have been 100 years old today. He was a remarkable dramatist, and he remains an important writer in American literature.
Ironically, this week in my American literature class, I read my first work by Mr. Williams. A Streetcar Named Desire was…
