Good Health and Good Luck

Time for a midweek update on the health situations in my family, and fortunately it’s a good one. My dad had his biopsy done and while technically the cancer is incurable, it’s highly manageable. He won’t need chemotherapy, he doesn’t have to make any big adjustments to his life, he just needs to take a …

Who is the Greatest of all Time? King James vs His Royal Airness

I don’t usually post on Sunday and almost never do I talk about sports, especially a sports argument that’s been beaten to death over the last 20 years. That argument is: who is the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan or LeBron James? (Let me first say that I think the late Kobe …

Book Review: “His Name Was Zach” by Peter Martuneac

Check out this wonderful and insightful review for His Name Was Zach from Berthold Gambrel! 😃 This is a post-apocalyptic zombie book. I should state up front: I’ve never really cared for the whole zombie genre. I saw Night of the Living Dead … Book Review: “His Name Was Zach” by Peter Martuneac

Weekend Update: Writing Words and a Bumpy Ride

Hello again, everyone! Time for another weekend update. My writing is going well, I hit a real groove this week and rocketed past 60,000 words for Creed: Mandate of Heaven. I originally thought the first draft would clock in at around 70,000 words but it’s looking now like it’ll finish closer to 80,000. And unlike …

Book Review: Redway Acres, Emmalee

This was my first foray into this genre (romantic-erotic), one that I’m not really a fan of, but it went surprisingly well! I understand this is the sixth book in the series but apparently a prequel to the others, so I feel like it was the right choice to start with. The characters were all …

Sneak Peek at “Creed: Mandate of Heaven”

It’s been a while since I’ve offered a glimpse at my latest work-in-progress, so I thought I’d share a snippet in today’s blog post! Conner Creed, the titular character, and his companions have just landed in China and are spending a last night of serenity at their hotel before slapping giant targets on their backs. …

Weekend Update: So Many Words

Time for a little update on my latest projects! I’m nearing the 60,000 word mark for my work-in-progress, Creed: Mandate of Heaven. That’s about half as long as His Name Was Zach is and barely more than a third of the final word count for Her Name Was Abby 😮 But those were epics, and …

Author Interview – Peter Martuneac

The incredibly talented author and blogger Stephen Black did an interview with me about my books! Go check it out, and give his Kirkwood books a look while you’re there, they’re really excellent 😃 This week I am joined by Peter Martuneac, whose ‘My Name Is Zach’ series has kept me on tenterhooks for many …

How to Write a Good Fight Scene

I’ve never thought of myself as particularly good at writing one kind of scene versus another, but throughout my His Name Was Zach series, one thing I’ve been told consistently by readers and reviewers is that they really enjoyed the fight scenes. So I guess I’m pretty good at writing fight scenes. With that in …

Book Review: Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden

This is one of the best military books out there. On October 3-4, 1993, a handful of Rangers and SFOD-D (Delta Force) operators were stranded in a city that was almost entirely hostile and armed, and they had to fight their way out. While technically a victory for American forces (16 men were killed, while …
