Brain Melt

“Puke and rally, puppy dog. We’re needed on the rooftop.” – Kian, Last Light When I first started writing the Undertow series, I had no clue what the characters would do for people. What their lives and their story would mean to people. And honestly, I had no clue the impact that the fictional world and […]

Inside the Concepts of a Killer Nightclub

They say news comes in two forms: Good and Bad. The Good: I’m working on Last Light. The Bad: It’s gonna be huge and my fingers are bleeding. Sometimes I’m stalled in my writing by simply needing to come out of the story to do research so I can feel my way through a setting […]

The Barnstable Patriot and Undertow.

Friday could have sucked. It could have sucked because I was dumb enough to blurt out, “SURE I’ll drive the band to Rhode Island,” when I really needed to grind through STORMFRONT. It could have sucked because the dog barfed on my new rug, but only after I realized she demolished my gloves. It could […]

Self-Published Marketing

What if the models don’t understand their characters’ emotions?” The questions went on and on . . . I simply responded, “Well, first of all, what would […]

Author Event and Book Signing! HELP!

You know why I write? Because it allows me to be invisible . . . somewhat. I can tell these elaborate whoppers in literary form and hide behind the pages. And people like to be told tall tales – who’d thunk it? Of course, once the story is out (and you inadvertently gain some hard-core […]
