All of a sudden . . .

it is the middle of July, and I realize I haven't posted in five weeks or so.

I am about to buy a house. I am excited but a bit nervous. I will own the most expensive thing I've ever had, and build up some equity as I do so. This will be an unusual sale: because of my current employment situation, I am planning to pay cash for the house. That has the advantage, however, that I won't have to worry about being evicted in a foreclosure proceeding.

And, if I can take care of my housing needs, I will eliminate one less worry in my life. Maybe then I can focus on my writing and some other means of passive income that will allow me to have at least some money coming in, money that will stretch further if it doesn't have to include monthly mortgage payments.

And maybe I can continue working on my next novel, Dirty Laundry. I am makng an effort to read more fiction lately, as I suspect that may be part of the reason I haven't been working on my edits. If all goes well, perhaps I can soon report the release.

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.

Look for my novel Taylor Made, available from and taylor_made_banner.jpg
