I believe that days of yore were better than the days of now. Yore had gypsies, itinerant peddlers that came to one’s door with all manner of interesting stolen goods; there were hobos who had special symbols that they painted on one’s gateposts and stiles.
Today, nothing doing. We have just one gypsy. Granted, it’s Johnny Depp, and he’s the hottest man ever invented, but he’s about it. The door to door peddlers are long gone, the last one selling Fuller brushes—no stolen…Continue

This recent TedTalks by Sunni Brown gets at a key piece of the creative life: the need for doodling. Granted, "doodle" is a silly word (it rhymes with "noodle" so yes, fun incarnate.) But "serious" writers and artists devoting "serious" "disciplined" time to a daily writing and creative practice, might not want to admit to doodling, daydreaming, or playing around.
Sunni Brown reveals how scribbling enhances memory, while hinting at what this oft-maligned activity means…Continue

Nobody said the life of a writer would be easy but it must be a shock to every indie author’s system to finish the final page of their novel and realize that the work has only just begun! Never have there been so many decisions to be made in such a…Continue
The grass is green.
The birds are singing.
The earth smells sweet.
And the irrigation canal is empty.
It was time to bring the heifers, and their…

My reading list has multiplied faster than a litter of reggaetoning
bunnies. Once the word was out that I’d been on the hunt for good Latino
mysteries, I’d somehow connected with a bunch of readers and a crazy number of
writers. When I started blogging and trying to figure out what I wanted to
focus on, I came up with three things. They were spirituality,…

You are not their father. My kids have a father. At least that’s what I was told. Adults make plans and children fail to understand them. God laughs. Kids tend to live in the present, with much less of an eye to the future. When you are among them, you might as well be a parent, regardless of how you might choose to qualify your role. No one found this more initially terrifying than me. But it was a responsibility I seem to have adopted more smoothly than I…Continue

Last night, that sentence came to me as I lay awake, worrying about something. I thought it was pretty cool. I thought I might take it and run with it, turn it into an as-yet unwritten story.
The problem is that an image isn't a story idea. I have nothing to place it in. No context, no problem set. In…Continue

For the last few nights, Indigo (our 10 month old Aussie) has been on the nocturnal prowl, barking at anything that moves…sometimes all night. I imagine she is trying to protect her territory from raccoons, possums, coyotes, and skunks.
With the summer drought and winter in the air, these…Continue

I hail from sunny South Africa, Cape Town to be exact. I am blessed to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, in my biased opinion the most beautiful but that’s a debate for another day.

Imagine for a moment – five days in New Orleans – a city with so much creative energy you can practically feel it breathing beside you, like William Faulkner must have felt when lived there and wrote Soldier’s Pay.
Then imagine 16 of the nation’s best and brightest agents and editors… AND a guaranteed sit down with one of EACH to discuss YOUR work… (and more if you like!)
Imagine dozens of authors sharing their considerable insights, from…Continue
