Dance with the Devils

Ever watch a movie or read in the intro of a book where the author says, “Based on actual events?” That is “Dance with the Devils.” From time to time, readers ask me if I knew a Nate Burns or even if Nate is a part of me.  The...

Shadow of the Moon

“Shadow of the Moon” started life as a challenge to myself.  I read a book from a well-known and successful author who had written the story of a werewolf.  The character was female and as a human was educated, successful and determined.  Every month, in coordination with the full...

Dead Men Walking

Unlike “The Law of Moses,” the story of Nate and Clare was intended to be a series from the first word.  In fact, I was mentally working on book two before the first was finished.  I not only wanted to tell an intriguing story, but a larger goal was...

The Tenth Nail

“The Tenth Nail,” is a story I had wanted to write for close to twenty years.  It was one I started several times, but never felt I had the right voice for it.  I always felt I sounded too much like Joseph Wambaugh, who wrote several best-selling police drama...

Vengeance is Mine: Resurrections

“The Law of Moses,” and “A Higher Calling” were finished.  Sam had learned to live with himself and with others.  He had, in essence, became human again.  He had learned acceptance and forgiveness.  He still had one more step to make.  He had to make peace with God. The...

Kellynch: A Fan Fiction Sequel

Once upon a time, there was a movie titled The Jane Austen Book Club.  As you would expect it was the story of a group of people who got together to read the novels of Miss Austen.  After watching the movie, I thought that would be a good idea,...

A Higher Calling: Laura’s Tale

As I told you before, I thought of “Moses” as a stand-alone novel.  Things don’t always work out the way I think they will.  C. S. Lewis said, when he was talking about writing, that he never actually wrote a book, instead, “it’s rather like taking dictation.  I was...

The Ghost in the Mini Skirt

“The Law of Moses” was a difficult book to write.  I had carried the story inside me for a number of years and in truth, I wrote the first two books preparing for Moses.  After it was finished, I spent several weeks fearing I had messed it up.  I...

Dear Emma

I’ve heard it said each of us has a book in them.  I hope that is true because writing has become truly my passion.  Hemingway warned us that if writing becomes our addiction, only death itself can save us.  Since I plan to live for several more years, I hope to have many...

John’s Blog

I would like to introduce you to a friend of mine.  His name is John, but he writes under the pen name J. C. Fields.  And he writes well. I just finished his first novel, The Fugitive’s Trail, and it’s a good one. You’ll be introduced to Special Agent...
