What’s it all about? An excerpt from Where Do Ideas Come From?

Posted by on Jul 15, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “The idea of creating a learning guide for young people’s books is truly inspired.”   Introduction Many of my novels can be used as the basis for workshops and projects in the classroom. The Alchemist’s Portrait, The Sorcerer’s Letterbox, and The Heretic’s Tomb are all time travel stories and can be used as the basis for workshops in which students create time machines and stories set in a different era. All three novels are also ideal for studying the different historical periods depicted in the stories. The...

What’s it all about? An excerpt from The Working Writer’s Guide

Posted by on Jun 29, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

“A great resource for beginning and established writers.”   Introduction Misconceptions are common regarding published authors. People think either that all authors earn millions or that it’s impossible to make a living as a writer. While some writers are financially successful with their e-books, success stories are rare, at least for now, and only a handful of authors make serious money from e-books. Misconceptions also abound regarding authors who write for children. Books for younger readers are often mistakenly considered...

It’s also a very compelling adventure story, with lots of cliffhangers, twists, and turns. In the novel we’re introduced to Andrew Mitchell, who was one of the leading experts in...

Flashback was published in 2015. It’s a paranormal mystery adventure for young adults featuring ghosts, psychics, and Project Mindstorm, a secret operation involving deadly mind control experiments, as Max investigates events concealed for over twenty years. The initial idea was one of the first that I had when I began my writing career but the novel took a while to develop to my satisfaction. In Flashback, Max, a fourteen-year old boy, experiences strange dreams and visions, which appear to be from someone else’s life. He also sees a...
