As most of you know, I’ve recently launched my second novel, MISTS OF BAYOU RHYNE.

How I Started Writing

   I wrote my first novel when I was fourteen.

 Before then, I had tried to keep journals, but I could never keep it up because I thought my life wasn't exciting enough to write down on paper. Who would want to read that? Me, when I'm older? I would fall asleep while reading about the boring life I had as a young teenager. Besides, who wants to relive their teenage years?

 I wanted to write something exciting, if I was going to write about anything.

Why You Shouldn't Give Up on Your Book

I love hearing great speakers present a well-crafted message. I especially love presentations when the speaker is an author whose books I've read.
