My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, I’m pretty sure every writer is familiar with Hemingway’s advice to, “Write drunk, and edit sober.” Apparently, Hemingway never said that. But that’s not my point. Instead, I thought I’d look at the phrase as the metaphor it is and...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, Well, Terminus, the final book of the nine-book Conspiracy Chronicles is finished, published, and up for sale! (It’s weird to think of the books as being “for sale.” I feel like once you buy them, I’m never going to see them again. And...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, These are strange times. People keep cracking jokes about how dystopian authors don't have to use their imagination anymore because we're living in the very world we've always written about. There’s some truth to this. But it’s a...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, There are certain stereotypes associated with certain groups. The English are stereotyped by Americans as being a little aloof, a little uptight, and a little dedicated to dropping their “h’s.” I’m a writer. It’s not my place to say...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, This isn't really a blog. But it is (I hope) an informative, behind-the-scenes look at some of what my writing and I are all about. Esther Rabbit -- writer, blogger, and educator -- conducted an interview with me (see link below) about...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, I just put Travelers to bed. First of all, that’s a figurative, not literal, reference to my latest novel, and not to a child or a to a dog…just in case you haven’t been paying attention. Travelers is Book 1 of the Transcendent Trilogy....
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, I think we often think of writing as a solitary exercise: some lone man or woman hammering out page after page in the quiet isolation of a study or tucked away in a book-cluttered office. There’s definitely some truth to that. Most of...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, In case you didn’t know it, I have the best dog in the world! I’m not sure if I’m the best person, but I’m a work in progress, and my dog seems to realize that and gives me room to pursue my never-ending efforts at self-improvement. As...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, I just got back from London, England. I’ll let that sink in… You know you’re in the middle of a real-life apocalypse when they start shutting down the British pubs. First things first. I’m fine. So far, anyway! Maybe that’s one of the...
My Dearest Fellow Conspirators, The second trilogy in The Conspiracy Ennealogy has just come to a conclusion with Synthesis, which is now out on Amazon! The Transcendent Trilogy—the final three books of the nine-part Conspiracy Chronicles—will be coming out one at a...
