Alpha Male Blog Hop

 #95 I present my character, Xavier, from the Existence series, with his thoughts on why he is the Alpha Male.             It became clear to me a decade or so ago, when Heath and I had entered puberty, that I would need to be the Alpha Male. Heath’s strength and power …

Ghost Rehearsal               I’ve been working here for over thirty years and have never seen anything like this.             “I can’t actually drink any, but I do miss the taste,” she said to me before she again extended her tongue like a frog after a fly. She plunged it into the champagne glass, swirled it …

A View On The Lance Armstrong Enough Is Enough Debate

            There’s the suggestion Lance opted not to engage in this merciless battle because he is guilty. One might wonder, if the decision not to fight endlessly really was an admission of guilt, why did he not say, “Yes, I did all these things,” instead of leaving the world with an …

Hypothetical HIMYM conversation

“Ted, Ted, Ted, the main character in Fraction of Existence is obviously Heath, the suited-up rich and charming playboy that lives in New York City and is never quite clear about what he does for a living. Ergo, it’s about me. And that, my friend, is going to get me laid.”   “You can’t use …

A Hero – Just for Fun

I have taken part in the hero blog hop as a reader only. (I missed the deadline to join in!) However, the more I read, the more my characters (especially Heath) are demanding that I write a hero post for them. So here it is! (Now maybe a writer can get some peace and quiet …

A Kindness for Writers

This was posted by my fellow writer, Elizabeth Marx.  Besides sending us a personal note about how our book touched you, the nicest thing you can do for an author is write us a review. Many people have no idea how to do this, myself included. I’ve been a booklover my entire life, but I …

I write like…

A link to this site was posted on Facebook. Curious, I gave it a whirl: I write like James Joyce I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing! Then I put in Xavier’s Easter Essay. I write like Dan Brown I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing! I suppose that …

A comparison

            The April 20/27, 2012 Issue #1203/1204 of Entertainment Weekly has, on page 90, an interview with Nicholas Sparks where they asked him about his five favorite romance movies. I thought it might be fun to compare his thoughts on these films with how my own characters and storylines from the Existence …

Forbes Fictional 15

            So I saw this article about the Forbes Fictional 15 richest characters. Naturally I thought about my own characters and where they would fall onto this list. In the first book (Fractions of Existence) it becomes clear that Xavier is “”rolling in it.””  In later books it will become clear …
