How-to Tips for Aspiring Writers
I’m often asked for writing tips by aspiring writers and no matter how the markets change the tips remain the same.

1.       Read. I would recommend you read in the genre you want to write. Don’t just read for pleasure, be analytical and  try to discover what that author is doing successfully.

2.       Write. I know this sounds silly, but I can’t tell you how many aspiring writers I meet who spend months researching, who talk about the book they’re going to write and they never get around to putting butt in chair and just doing the work.

3.       Learn. Go to workshops to learn craft, take on-line courses to learn techniques to better your writing. Join  a writer group.  It’s wonderfully affirming to realize you aren’t crazy…you’re a writer and there are other people just like you!

4.       Be nosy. Become acutely aware of other people when you’re shopping or walking in the park or whatever. A snippet of overheard conversation can be the heart of a new book. Characters are everywhere and I believe most writers are observers who then create.

5.       Listen to the voices in your head. You aren’t crazy! Sometimes my best scenes arrive in my head before I put them on paper. Your subconscious often does your writing for you if you just listen.


6.       Write every day. At least for me, writing is like a jealous lover that demands attention.  If being a published writer is really what you want, then you should be actively working toward that goal every day. Dreams rarely happen unless you work for them. If you want to be a writer, then work it! 

After years in hiding, Josie Colton has her life back. But to settle a family promise, she must find an old clue buried at the Colton Valley Ranch. She enlists the help of ranch foreman Tanner Grange—in exchange for working as his twin toddlers' new nanny. On their search, the single dad soon begins to lasso Josie's heart. 
Tanner agrees to assist Josie and is alarmed by how the Colton beauty fits so perfectly into his life. He's got his hands full investigating the disappearance of his boss and caring for his little girls. When it's clear someone will kill to stop Josie from uncovering the clue, Tanner vows to protect her…for life!

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
