If you've listened to my podcast or read some of my previous posts on here, you'll know that, to me, dreaming is where some of my ideas come from. I had a weird one last night. I wasn't in it, but I was witnessing it from a third-person point of view. Basically, a woman was… Continue reading A Weird Dream

Creating characters for stories is a step in the writing process that authors either love or hate. The ones that love it look at it as just another part of the creative process. They often spend inordinate amounts of time thinking about their characters, writing up biographical details, backstories, creating a look and a personality.… Continue reading Character Development

The podcast is available at all the usual places like iTunes Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, and of course, at PodBean. I'd love to… Continue reading The Prometheus Project Podcast, Episode 9, is available!
I've lived in Florida for most of my life, and I've been lucky enough to survive twelve or so hurricanes. Some were much worse than others. Hurricane Micheal, for example, blew through the panhandle last year and there is still debris and damage to contend with. Dorian was one of those storms, much like Michael,… Continue reading Post-Dorian Thoughts

I love to hear feedback,… Continue reading Prometheus Project Podcast – Ep 08 is now available!

I'm not going to try and defend those descriptions. I agree,… Continue reading Writing Other Genders
The latest episode of my podcast is live. You can find it on all the usual platforms, including PodBean.
I love libraries. Growing up, I spent hours in my local libraries, roaming the aisles between the shelves, inhaling that comfortable old-book smell, pulling titles that caught my eye. I researched school papers (this was before the internet, of course) and topics for stories I wanted to write. I learned how to read the Dewey… Continue reading E-Book Drama
