Is Time Travel Possible?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Two men from the University of Maryland, Igor Smolyaninov and Yu-Ju Hung, have done an experiment in the lab which they say shows that time travel is probably impossible. You’re probably thinking that makes me either mad or embarrassed, considering the most success I’ve had as a writer has come from time travel stories. To… Read more »

Garison Fitch IV – the Ongoing Saga

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

One of the things that I have to decide in my own mind is “who is telling the story?” For instance, “The Nice Guy” was written in first person, so it’s obviously told by Bat Garrett. “First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch” is told by Heather and Sarah Fitch.

Unfortunately, the trouble follows him. “Overstreet” is my tribute to Louis L’Amour. I didn’t specifically try to channel… Read more »

Read Through

This past weekend, I figured out how to send myself a manuscript so I could read it on my Kindle and see how it’s going to look when someone purchases it. So I sent myself my novel (with the working title of) “Stardust”. Yes, I realize the name may need a change if for no… Read more »

Wresting with Writing

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I have never had as much trouble with writing anything as I am having right now with writing “Garison IV”* I have the “big ideas” in my head, but the actual sentences are hard to come by. There are a lot of reasons for this. For one thing, there’s a lot of life going on… Read more »
