With all she'd been through and her skills at parkour and freerunning, for the top secret group within the CIA Nike Tallent was the perfect candidate to be trained as the assassin's assassin. Until she began to ask questions. Questions were dangerous.
All Nike wanted was to be 'real' again, whatever real was...

Romance novels tell us not how men are, but how we wish them to be. A few years back (I’m not telling how many *laughing*) I found myself in the position of watching my (previous) marriage at the beginning of the inevitable downward slide toward divorce. It was a tough time. Worse, because I was trying to follow my dream of writing. That was what tipped over the apple cart. What saved me was reading, of course. More particularly, reading a series of specific books – Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay series. Knowing N.R.’s history...

#MeToo – Abuse, Domestic Violence, Rape ‘fantasies’ & Trigger Warnings

Synchronicity is a strange animal. The Michael Weinstein exploded about a month after this was posted. Prior to that a question had come up on Facebook – in books where a primary part of the plotline is abuse, domestic or sexual violence is it necessary to start with the gory details? On another thread a rather harsh discussion took place regarding rape in an ‘erotic’ novel. The quotation marks around erotic are deliberate – and pertinent to a recent change on Smashwords as recounted on their blog. Because of the...

Song of the Fairy Queen – New Cover

When last I posted, I didn’t know what the new cover would look like. I loved the old cover and wasn’t sure what to expect from the new cover. I didn’t know if that cover I loved so much could be matched.It was not only matched, it was exceeded, and I’m not the only one who thinks so! What do you think? Isn’t it incredible? I said then that I would name the cover artist when I saw the new cover. Major Kudos to the folks at Damonza.com! You can find the new edition at...

Song of the Fairy Queen – New cover?

“If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” – Toni Morrison So, like most writers, that’s what I did.  I love fantasy but I’d run out of books I wanted to read, stories of action, adventure, magic and – yes – passion. Something between Stardust and Game of Thrones. I love Gaiman’s mix of adventure and romance, and I loved G. R. R. Martin’s political intrigue and action. What surprises and puzzles me is the criticism...

History and how it should influence fantasy writers

When I began the prequel to The Coming Storm/A Convocation of Kings some of the research I’d done on Egyptian society for the Servant of the Gods series – particularly how influential the Nubians were – came into play withsome major characters. I knew there had to be other African cultures I hadn’t learned about – especially knowing how much native history tended to be overlooked by European nations. (Forgive me for taking some liberties with those societies, not with the essentials, but combining them to further...

In keeping with Valentine’s Day – who is my favorite fictional couple?

Posted by on 1:26 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I’ve probably had dozens over the years, as a teenager I read a pretty diverse mix of books from the classics to science fiction (which, if they featured women at all, they made them male sex fantasies) to fantasy (Tolkien’s mentioned Arwen only briefly, but Eowyn was stellar) and a few standard romances (which were pretty unrealistic prince/millionaire types).  The old classical writers knew a relationship was essential to a story – Anne, Constance, and Milady De Winter were essential to The Musketeers....

There are those who say writers shouldn’t insert politics into their writing…

To those folks I say, “Oh please! I blow raspberries in your general direction”. Have you read Charles Dickens  A Christmas Carol? He was using his writer’s bully pulpit to bring attention to the poor, and how they were kept that way through ignorance (lack of public education). Or on the opposite side, Tom Clancy – a known conservative whose political views informed all his writing. To find myself the subject of a political ‘intervention’, though, was more than a little shocking. After all, in this...
