Inspiration for Texas Winds

TexasWinds_EB.jpg   Of all the questions I'm asked as an author, probably the most common one is "Where do you get your story ideas?"
The short answer is: Everywhere. Anything can spark a story. An interesting person I meet, a situation, sometimes in a dream and sometimes even an item of clothing can spark an idea. That's just how my brain works.

fan 3.jpg  I love research because I will invariably learn something new aside from what I'm looking for. I love fans. I have several and use them on occasion. I didn’t know until that day that there is a widely accepted fan language, the origin of which is still debated.

At long TW_CoverReveal.jpglast, my current WIP is getting closer to a reality! Life has kept  me from getting much writing done, but lately, I have made significant progress! Yeah me! My next book, entitled Texas Winds, will, hopefully be out this fall.

What Are You Reading?

SOTH w 2017.jpg

Hi there! I bet you thought I'd left the country, huh? I have been inactive for several months due to recurring back issues, but, hopefully, those days are over...finally! While I have been unable to do much here, I have been able to filter through my TBR list of books and man, did I find some goodies hidden in there!
