Writing Tips from the Trenches

Writing Tips from the Trenches Recently, I was asked how I write my characters and what is the trick I use that makes them “live beyond the book.” Honestly, I kinda got stumped when the question was asked of me. At first I wanted to blurt out, “Uh, I’ve no clue” and to be fair, […]

Titcomb’s Bookshop the Brave

      Back in 2013, before Undertow officially launched, I wandered into Titcomb’s Bookshop in Sandwich Massachusetts and happened to come face-to-face with owner Vicky Titcomb.

Character Craft and Writing in Reverse

I don’t plot characters. There – I admit it. I totally roll on gut instinct when I write for my cast. That said, I could never actually write them at all if I didn’t know two things: Who they were born as (personality, emotion, natural abilities, etc). How they evolved as a result of their […]

Writer Woe Number 428 (or something like that): Too Many Blasted Characters

First of all, I know what you’re going to say. You’re going to say that the sheer volume of characters in my novels is my own stupid fault. That I was a doofus and basically unleashed the population of a small movie theater (on a Harry Potter premier night) into my imagination and said, “Sure […]
