First, happy holidays, Merry Ho ho, and a happy new year to all. My apologies for the lengthy absence. It’s been a busy time all around, and quite frankly, I wanted to take a bit of time off to get back to the essence of what I live and breathe; writing. I know this is considered writing, but I’m talking about my truest passion, my artistic baby, my Rachmaninoff, my Beethoven’s fifth. . . eh, who am by trying to kid? My regular life got in my way, and I just haven’t ha...Read Full Post »

The key message for my book is very simple… It’s all about the power of choice. The young man in my book has been plagued with a hard life, and the consequences of choices, by his hand or others, are the result.

When I started writing, I developed a storyboard for the overall structure. I’m more of a v...Read Full Post »

Glorious Incorporated had been an idea that I had for over a decade and really did nothing about. As with all grand ideas like catching a blue Marlin off the coast of Ireland, playing drums out on tour with Paul McCartney, and creating the “Great American Novel”, it was put by the wayside with everything else that I didn’t have time for. I was a pragmatic realist back in that life. I was working my way up the corporate ladder, and really didn’t have time for nonsensica...Read Full Post »
