New Books to Write

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Here I am, struggling to write the next book in the saga of Edward and Marianne, when I keep getting these seemingly great ideas for other novels. Do I stick with what I’m working on or do I follow the muse? Is the muse for real, or just another form of work avoidance? What if… Read more »

An Unrealized Character

Several years ago, a friend and I came up with a comic book story. Mike was going to draw the comic book and I was going to write it. The story was going to follow a guardian angel. One night, the angel had kept his charge from being in a car wreck. But that wasn’t… Read more »

I’m “hard” at work on the sequel to “All the Time in Our World”. On the one hand, it’s already been written, but I was never satisfied with a particular section. If this were a football game, you might say I was having trouble in the red zone. On the other hand, it’s not really… Read more »
