I plan to publish my newest novel, Taylor Made, this Friday, November 2, 2012, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble,
and Smashwords.com. Taylor Made is a private detective novel set in the Twin Cities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
It features a main character I hope to write more about. In fact, I already have another novel and a novellete using the same
character that should see the light of day within the next few months.
The graduation date from my Paralegal program
has moved back several months. I now should graduate and become a qualified paralegal in March of 2013.

It has been a long time since I have posted to this blog. For that, I can only blame myself. I had a busy quarter in school,
during which I felt like I spent every day doing homework. My writing suffered, and I ignored this site.

my main computer, the one that has all my files stored on it, has been in the shop for more than a week while it is cleaned
of malware and spyware, and the registry files are repaired. I only hope the repairs work -- I don't want to have to buy a
new computer, and not just because I can't really afford it right now.
Things are happening now, however. I have
10 weeks left in school, after which I will be a qualified Paralegal (because I will still need a day job for at least a while.)
I am revising and editing one of my novels, and I have a novelette on deck after that.
And I am planning to have
my next novel, Taylor Made, out at the end of October. I will have to spend a lot time time this next week or so
formatting it to make this happen, but I think it is still possible.
If I can manage it, I hope to get my novelette,
Evil Twin, out by the end of the year. This means that, if I play my cards right, I can publish twice more before
the end of the year, and a half-dozen times in total this year, including two novels.
I have written about
another project, a novella called Skinny Dipping. I will work on this between other projects. I have decided to substantially
change the structure of the story, and I am still not certain it will work. I may eventually compllete it as a movie script
as well as a novella.
I hope these humble words are worth the wait.
I will try to be more active on
this site in the future.
About me: I have been writing since the early 1980s, ever since discovering a passion for writing during my senior year
in High School. My completed writings include novels, short stories, and newspaper articles. I have completed four novels
in that time, and have partially completed two others. I have had little success in finding an agent or a publisher for any
of my novels, and have recently taken my efforts online. During the years that I have been writing, I have also served my
country as a member of the United States Army's Judge Advocate General's Corps. In the last five years, I have been deployed
to Army bases in Iraq, Kansas, and Virginia.
