Check out the new video course designed to elaborate and expand on the 5-Draft Method:

In a letter from Dean Koontz, he wrote: "When all you think about is writing, when you go to sleep thinking about your writing, and when you wake up you think about writing, THEN, you are a writer."

If you believe it, it will happen. Maybe not on your time schedule, but it will happen. Have belief. In yourself. Find belief. In those that support you no matter what.

Influences: Grandpa, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Michael Connelly, George R. R. Martin, Robert Heinlein, C.S. Lewis, Theodor Seuss Geisel, Shel Silverstein, the Nowell Codex, ancient mythology and hieroglyphics.

I hope you enjoy my stories. Read, comment and vote! It really helps keep me going! I will reply to all comments!

See you around the site!
