I don’t do new year resolutions. Resolutions to me, one either succeeds at the resolution or fails. No in between. I don’t think that’s a sustainable way to better yourself. You’re gonna have ups and downs and you have to accommodate for the ebbs and flows of life…
As I was going through collecting and collating all my writing from 2020 and 2021, I was feeling bummed about my lack of writing. It wasn’t until I was about an hour […]
As I trudge along, writing the novel that I have been working on since at least the year 2000, no joke there, the thought “maybe you really don’t want to be a […]
I have started working on finalizing THE SOUND OF MADNESS to be self-published. I originally wanted to have it self-published in January, but it didn’t feel right so I kind of pushed it aside. […]

As I soon start draft 2 of The Sound of Madness, I am reaching to friends, family, and strangers on the ol’ interwebs to be beta readers. What’s a beta reader? A […]
On March 1, 2014 around 10:17 pm I completed the first draft of The Sound of Madness. It took me 68 days total from December 23, 2013 to March 1, 2014. Of […]
