When I'm writing a novel, a set a disciplined schedule and stick to it. I used to write in the evenings, but I found I would lose track of time and write until two or three in the morning. Then later in bed, my mind would be racing with ideas and I'd be getting up constantly, jotting down notes for future chapters or further character development. Now, I write in the mornings and try to pen 2,000 words a day.(less)

Often I get so attached to certain characters I have a difficult time letting them go and, believe it or not, get all teary-eyed as I'm nearing The End. But, paradoxically, I love typing The End.(less)

I recently started reviewing my website traffic and realized the Chapters sub-category under Blog was getting a lot of readership. It seems people want to sample my wares before they buy. Fair enough. Without any further adieu, please find below a sample of The End is Nigh, my latest post-apocalyptic thriller. Modesty aside, it’s received rave reviews and has wowed many readers.

First, here’s a...

Brainstorm (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2015 03:35AM
Description: Wow! What a truly amazing story of courage and personal transformation. I was deeply moved by this novel. - Winslow Eliot Inspired by true events, this faced paced and compelling drama chronicles a handicapped family’s struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. A story of personal transformation, it documents their life and death struggles and their ability to give so much when they have so little. Their plight is set in stark contrast to the materialism of contemporary society and the public ridicule and social rejection they suffer as a result of their handicaps-short term memory loss and epilepsy. Garnet DeWitt has been having epileptic seizures for as long as he can remember-some so severe he wakes up in the hospital bruised and battered with no recollection of what happened. Finally, doctors are able to isolate the area of his brain responsible for the seizures. But during surgery, something goes terribly wrong and it’s unclear if he will ever recover. In the meantime, his handicapped wife Ella, struggling with public ridicule and dwindling finances, has a terrible fall that lands her in hospital and doctors discover she has a benign tumor that must be operated on. But she slips into a coma, and enters a dark world that seems real on one hand and eerily surreal on the other. Debbie Dupree, a successful realtor and the epitome of a capitalist machine, is her only hope for survival. Debbie starts helping them to ease her guilty conscience just as her own life begins to spiral out of control. But is she too late?
Nightmare's Edge (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2015 03:35AM
Description: A horror story that will scare the hell out of you and open your eyes to the harsh reality of life in paradise. -AC Nels Watson has been having nightmares for as long as he can remember-some so violent and real he wakes up drenched in sweat and trembling with fear. His problems start when he travels to the beachfront community of Costambar, on the north shore of the Dominican Republic. He meets his long-time Dominican girlfriend Novelee and strange things start happening-his worst nightmares begin coming true. He dreams of his friends being stalked and killed, and suddenly realizes he is being hunted by a ruthless killer-who is intent on murdering him and his friends. Novelee’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and things go missing from his apartment. Who can he trust? Struggling through sleepless nights, a sleeping pill addiction and an alcoholic haze, Nels recruits the aid of his powerful and well connected friend Juan, and tries to navigate his way through his tumultuous romance and a series of violent attacks by the killer. He sets out on a mission to save himself and his friends. Nightmare’s Edge journeys deep into the underbelly of local culture and exposes the need for money that at times is the underlying motivation behind Dominican friendliness. It strips away the idyllic veneer, revealing the dark and predatory nature of many of this country’s people. A wild and terrifying ride that entertains and educates!
Phantom Rage (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2015 03:35AM
Description: Kathleen Freeborne lives a perfectly normal life until the day her team of paranormal investigators is granted permission to investigate the reportedly haunted King’s Playhouse Theatre in Prince Edward island, Canada. On the morning of the investigation, she suffers a terrifying panic attack, leading her to believe her life is coming to a grinding halt and people are out to get her. Events escalate from bad to worse when the team arrives at the theater only to discover caretaker Bill Blythe is behaving oddly and ranting incomprehensible religious gibberish. Shortly after his departure, they see a bloodied and battered apparition of a woman who tells them to beware the chosen one. The frightened team flees only to discover a few days later that strange things are happening around the little town of Montague. The townsfolk are behaving oddly and frightening events are happening all around them-many in their own homes. After a series of gruesome murders, they embark down a dark path, trying to stop the demented killer. Or killers. A chilling, mind-bending journey that explores haunted happenings-that would shove most people over the edge-that paranormal investigators handle regularly. Phantom Rage will terrify you so much you’ll want to sleep with the light on!
Assaulted Souls (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2015 03:35AM
Description: Nathan King wakes up one day freezing cold and starving with hunger on a tattered mattress in a dark cave and has no idea where or who he is. He meets Edward Sole, apparently his protector for the last few months, who tells him a nuclear bomb has been dropped and most, if not all of the world, has been destroyed. Slowly the realization sinks in that in this horrific post-apocalyptic landscape, there are no rules, no laws. Cannibalism is rampant, mutant animals and humans are on the attack. With all communication cut off, and meagre supplies, every day becomes a fight for survival and sanity! Too make matters worse, a band of savages called The Neanderthals have emerged who rape, pillage and murder for more than just survival. They enjoy it. Fighting for their survival and hoping to find a more hospitable island off the coast of Prince Edward Island, Ed and Nathan team up with Cadence Whitaker, Nathan’s girlfriend whom he has no recollection of, and fierce warrior Velvet Jones to try and hatch a plan to escape the island before they’re all killed. In the meantime, Ed has begun a slow descent into madness, leaving the group wondering who the enemy really is. A lightning-paced, action-packed exploration of a terrifying existence in a wasteland decimated by mankind’s stupidity.
