The Inevitable


I feel the trick to writing stories is not to look elsewhere but within myself. Our lives have enough plots and subplots and complications to make great stories.

IndieView with J.B. Maynard, author of The Cautionary Tale of Butch Black



I lived the life of Butch Black, so conveying and exaggerating actual events came as little challenge. I believe that’s what makes this book so hysterical: the fact that 90% of these things actual happen to the people working in retail.

IndieView with Angela V. Cook, author of Into a Million Pieces

Into-a-Million-Pieces-800 Cover reveal and Promotional


Every time this girl kissed her boyfriend, she absorbed some of his life energy, which in turn weakened him. I had never heard of a succubus, but I loved the idea of a teenage girl who was in love, but couldn’t so much as kiss her boyfriend without harming him.

IndieView with Anne Louise Bannon, author of Fascinating Rhythm



I was listening to Fitzgerald’s recording of the Gershwin Songbook (with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra), and the tune Fascinatin’ Rhythm came on as I was pouring my cheesecake batter into the pan. I danced along to the tune as I went to put the cheesecake into the oven and half the cheesecake went flying onto the floor. As I was cleaning it all up, it occurred to me that the song was about obsession – what an interesting motive for murder. From there, the characters just started coming alive and talking to me.

If a book doesn’t snag Joe-Schmo right away he’ll put it back on the shelf and never buy it.

IndieView with J.S. Bangs, author of Storm Bride

Storm-Bride-800 Cover reveal and Promotional


At the level of plot and setting, I was intrigued by a recurring cycle in the history of Europe and Asia where the “civilized” people living at the edges of the Eurasian continent get overrun by barbarian nomads from the inland steppes, and then the barbarians settle down and become civilized, and then the whole cycle repeats again a few hundred years later.

You can try to defend your story, but you can’t sit next to all of your readers and explain it to them.
Writing is hard. Getting reviewed is hard. It’s all part of the job.

I hadn’t planned on writing a book for him, but I had readers actually asking me for a book on him.

RITD New Front Cover 2

With the gritty content of my current series, I’d have to say they’re more targeted to the eighteen and older crowd who like mysteries, thrillers, suspense, etc. Just remember there’s that dark edge to it.

IndieView with J. Daniel Batt, author of Keaghan in the Tales of Dreamside

dreamside omnibus cover small


My son isn’t as an avid reader as the rest of the family. He often struggles to find books that would interest him at his reading level. So, my desire was to take some of the elements that are found in older fantasy works and put them in a book that was at his reading level.
