In the era of Me, too, its time to reclaim our sexuality – let’s not go back to 1950s

In the era of Me, too, its time to reclaim our sexuality – let’s not go back to 1950s

I really don’t want to go back to the 1950s and 60s with their prudishness over sex. Lennon and G. R. R. Martin were and are right. It’s madness that we can’t show love in all its facets but we can show violence with abandon. With the advent of women’s erotic romance we saw a rise in the acceptance of women’s sexuality. Go, us! It was and is a beautiful thing. We can finally say that women do like sex, and we always have. Think about your own romance, wasn’t it great and wonderful to look at the person you...

Synchronicity: Nike’s Wings

A few years back I was inspired to write a political action thriller. An avid news reader, I’d been accumulating odd bits of information on a variety of subjects, including politics, terrorism to drug trafficking. One source of puzzlement was why this country has no truly fast response group, so for the purpose of the story I invented one, the National Intelligence Organization – a purposely vague title both for the agency in the book and for the book itself. Rather than our somewhat militaristic approach of wait, assess and...

Don’t Stop Protesting, Don’t Stop Fighting    #TimesUp #metoo #EnoughisEnough #NeverAgain #GunControl

We thought we’d won. We thought we’d raised the issue of domestic violence. We thought change was on the horizon. We were wrong. We stopped fighting too soon. Domestic violence continues to kill — and not just the victims. On Feb. 22, 2018 a police officer died aiding a neighbor. The shooter had a long history of domestic violence, an active protective order against him, and three open warrants, including for assault. A man barred from owning firearms shot two officers in Westerville OH with a gun purchased by a friend,...

I write fantasy novels for grownups

Do you like fantasy novels with realistic, complex characters, fantastic worlds with Elves, Dwarves, Men, Fairy Queens or High Priestesses, where battles of the mind and the heart are fought as well as battles against uncanny enemies? Epic, heroic, historic Arthurian fantasies. Tolkienesque or G. R. R. Martin (with healthy relationships and without the incest and rape. Why does G. R. R. not have any positive relationships between his characters?) In other words, not YA. I prefer to be realistic about all aspects of relationships in the books...

Audio – Part 2

Okay, to be honest, I never considered myself to be an audio person, although I know a lot of people who use audiobooks for traveling to and from work or on vacation. I had my reservations about doing that (more on that later) but as with many authors I love my readers, so, as with print and e-books, I wanted to give those who liked audio the chance to hear my books. So, a few years back I took the leap into audiobooks. I was excited, but I had trepidations. ACX/Audible was available through Amazon, so I set it up through them. The process...

Audio – I’m so excited!

Once before I dallied with the idea of doing audiobooks, starting with one of the novellas in The Coming Storm series – Setting Boundaries – a prequel to the series.  At best the result was ‘meh’. The narrator was okay, but he was convinced fantasy had to be read with a ‘British accent’ – I’m not sure why. And his accent wasn’t really British. It wasn’t horrible, but there was just something… that wasn’t quite there. I had wanted to have the whole series on audio with the...
