Cooperative Story Writing

Cooperative Story Writing It was mid-November, late on a Friday night. The weather just turned cold and I was warming my toes by the fire, sipping scotch. I was in a creative mood and thinking about different story ideas when it occurred to me that I should see what people would like to hear about.

Wicked Folk Released

Wicked Folk Released Finally, the wait is over! Wicked Folk, Witchy World #2 has been released to Amazon and is generally available. 2016 has been a year of stretching for me. First off, I released Wizard in a Witchy World which I wrote on a whim. One of my favorite genres to read is urban fantasy and I decided I was going to try my hand at it. What I wasn’t expecting was the super response that Wizard received. I was fully prepared for it to take a long period of time to be discovered, but I was fortunate that...
