If you are a new or aspiring writer, you've come to the right place.

I created this website to help writers avoid making all the mistakes I made when I first started writing novels. If I had known back then
what I know now...well, you can  fill in the blanks.

And I am still learning. Whenever I discover something new, I add it to this website, so if you want to learn with me, be sure to sign up
for the e-mail subscription list via the
Let's Connect button in the top menu.

While what works for one author may not work for another, some things apply to most of us across the board, and that's where I have
tried to focus my thoughts. My experience comes from writing fiction, but much of what I have presented could apply to other types of
writing. So browse the menu bar on the left for rules on writing fiction, tips on how to get started, how to promote and market your
books, and much more.

I wish you the best of luck in your writing projects. If you get stuck and think I may be able to help, or if you have a question about the
writing process, self-publishing, or promoting your work, please feel free to
contact me.
Click on the covers for a synopsis of each book, first chapter, book reviews, and testimonials.

For those of you familiar with this site, you'll see most of the same material as was on my former site-it's
been updated and presented in a new format. I hope you like it!

ATTN READERS!  Before I started writing books, I hadn't given much thought to posting a book review on Amazon, even if that's
where I purchased the book. Who cared what I thought? Now that I’m an author, I’m here to tell you these reviews are very
important to authors for attracting new readers and boosting rankings within Amazon. So if you like an author's book, please take a
few minutes to write a review. It doesn't have to be very long--just a few well-thought-out sentences can make a world of difference
to an author and for the book’s success.

- Receive periodic notifications when additional subjects are added to
the writer’s advice sections (about one per quarter).

- Learn of my future book releases (about one per year).

- Let me know if you would like to see additional topics included on
this website, and if I use your suggestion, receive a complimentary
copy of one of my books (your choice).
