Beginner’s Luck

When they first learn to do magic, they think the power they wield is their own. The ego is a weak, insatiable, master, and some of the gods are fickle. And some of the gods are not. And some of the gods are devils. And some things are better forgotten. Only fools dare play with… Continue reading Beginner’s Luck

December I Am In You, Fantastically So

Where to begin? I finished writing the book, typed the table of contents into it last night. Now the editing begins. I'll probably be completely finished with it...when I'm finished with it. I don't want to jinx it. This book started out as one thing and became something else as I found strength in my… Continue reading December I Am In You, Fantastically So

We barely broke eighty degrees here today. There are still some ninety-degree temperatures predicted into the middle of the month, but today Summer officially began to fade.

The night air is noticeably cooler, Autumn is set to arrive.ย  I've… Continue reading The New Book: Magdalene Aubergine

The Book That Wasn’t

Going to share a couple of posts today. This first one is about the book that wasn't, or isn't, or won't be. There's a great quote from Philip Roth, "Don't judge it. Just write it. Don't judge it. It's not for you to judge it." For me this applies completely to writing, but not necessarily… Continue reading The Book That Wasn’t

One November, I Published Two Books

I've worked hard the last couple of years to get some books published, I'm thinking of them as there were "the first five," and now there is "the magnificent seven." I also have stories in three print anthologies, and I'm going to get those linked up with cover pictures, as well as having been published… Continue reading One November, I Published Two Books

Gold Mine, These Are the Words I Managed to Save

During the fall months of 2008 and into 2009, reality slipped away from me. Amid the avalanche of dissipating solidity descending into complete confusion and chaos of thought, I threw more than twenty years of writing, of work, into a cauldron of flames. Most of it without ever looking at what it was that I… Continue reading Gold Mine, These Are the Words I Managed to Save

In that, to me,… Continue reading Loyalty, Love, Lies, and Growing Up Dead In Texas.
