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 …

Y is for Yule (Existence series character)

            Fantastic. I left a beautiful five star hotel with a delicious masseur to stay in a box. Xavier is seriously going to owe me for this. So is she, once she gets her memory back.             She looks so sad. It’s hard to not be able to reveal the answers …

V is for Granny Vine (Existence series character)

            It was mid-March, 1944. Though I had just turned 21, I had already been married for five years. (Back then, if a boy got a girl “into trouble,” marriage was the only real option.) My mother was watching our son so that Frank and I could spend the evening together …

U is for Urania (Existence series character)

(The following phone call is mentioned in Fractions of Existence. This is how it seemed from the other end.)             What is that buzzing? Oh right, that’s my phone.             “Hello?”             “Good morning, Urania! I didn’t wake you, did I?”             “No, of course not.” Seriously, why would I be …

K is for Killjoy

            My favorite line in book one (Fractions of Existence) is Xavier’s reply of “Killjoy,” to Gwendolyn. I laugh every time I read it. There is something so light and natural about their witty banter with each other. At the outset, it seems like they would be nervous and awkward when …
