Four Seas Ice Cream and Undertow

It’s no secret that much of what is in UNDERTOW is “doable” in real life on Cape Cod. It’s like a teen’s guide on what to do on the Cape. Jump from the Town Neck bridge? Yup. Bonfire on Sandy Neck? Check! Drive out on the sand with a vehicle? Damn straight! Nosh on decadent […]

Welcome to Cape Cod

So . . . I have been totally neglectful of my blog, but it wasn’t because I was addicted to reruns of X-Files or something. I was finishing some edits to STORMFRONT which will launch this summer on Cape Cod (end of July  . . . I am hoping). I am also a mom and a […]

Chuck Wendig and Young Adult Fiction

I write YA (upper YA, if we are getting technical). My main audience is in the 15/16 year old range right through adulthood. The UNDERTOW series is a thinking person’s mystery, threaded through a wild cast of supernatural characters. My focus has always been on building real characters who jump off the page and haunt people […]

Each author will offer brief insights into their writing processes and, in turn, they will introduce you to more authors. I was invited […]

How I Write the Darkness

We are what we write, or so I am told. Some people have been reading the advanced pages of STORMFRONT and have mentioned that some of the most potent scenes are also the darkest, which I believe is true of life. We so often remember the toughest moments, rather than the blissful ones. My mother always accused me […]

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 […]

Writers Night Out – My Notes on Marketing

Tonight the Cape Cod Writer’s Center hosted a sold out WRITERS NIGHT OUT at UNOs in Hyannis – many thanks to Dean Coe who started the ball rolling on the self-published info night and to all those who came and worked hard on it! Especially Janet, who is a part-time slave of the CCWC. We […]

Bookstores and Book Signings

I’ve had many Indie authors ask me how I landed book signings for UNDERTOW at various bookstores. The questions were the same: How did I ask them? What did I say? Who did I beg? Want the truth? I didn’t ask any of them. Instead, they asked me. Now, don’t get me wrong – I […]
