The Man Behind The Blog

No different from any other novelist/screenwriter swimming upstream against the violent currents of life. Fighting the usual obstacles every writer has to confront; rejected queries, distractions, loneliness, balancing editing and the creative process, writer’s block, and the NEED to be heard.

Even as life pulled me away from my keyboard like reverse gravity, I still found a way to complete 2 novels Paradox (science fiction) and The Executioner’s Diary (thriller). Both novels are also written in screenplay format and both novels have detailed outlines for their sequels. A third novel Dark Paradise (thriller) is hand written waiting to be transcribed to computer.

Currently working on my latest novel

    1. Hi. Honestly, not considering it. I am going the old fashion way, searching for a literary agent or a Hollywood director interested in making my movies.

      Since I started blogging I have met many writers who have self published. Honestly most of them are unhappy, bitter, and frustrated.

      Thanks for the suggestion. Appreciate your concern.

  1. My dream is to be traditionally published with my adult novels. Meanwhile, I’ve self-published my two novels for younger readers. Self-publishing is okay, but marketing is really hard and requires a lot of time and energy that I’d rather spend writing. I’m on my sixth novel and just won’t give up. My son has nearly completed his first novel. My husband is very supportive of our efforts and believes in us both — thank goodness!

    1. You have a good husband. It isn’t easy being the spouse of a writer. lol

      I agree with you about the marketing, I would rather spend my time writing.

      Best of luck in all your writing endeavors. Thanks for these comments, it reinforces my resolve.

  2. I do hope you are far into your journey of being a published author. I too have this similar goal, but have to many walls to tear down, climb over or go around every few chapters. May the goodness of heaven shower your work with favor.

  4. You are quite the inspiration and you’re doing amazingly well. You should be very proud. I think I’m in the pile of people who have always wanted to write a book, I feel the ‘itch’, but will likely never get any further with starting. All the very, very best with your work, for which I have no doubt you could and should become a published author 😉

          1. I’d say, whichever of your manuscripts you would be happiest to see edited and published? I’d suspect, start by clicking the link, finding our email addy, sending a subs letter with a short synopsis and attaching a chapter-by-chapter synopsis and 3 chapters? Of course, only if you want to. No pressure.

            A bit of background on us, we’ve been publishing small-time in South Africa and online for 10 years now and since I moved to Ireland, I’m working on stepping the business up. Have a look

  5. Love your poem about loosing N. I’m sorry. Does it help to say I feel the same way about someone? But people sometimes are not eternally lost to us. I will have another chance with mine, but that depends on me and my desire to remain positive and unchanging in my dream to have a life with him someday. The Lord’s blessings on your endeavor for a new love,

    1. Sorry, you feel the same way. No one should have to experience the pain of lost love, but it is a very real part of life. Happy to hear you will have another chance.
      Second chances are always wonderful.

      Thank you for your kind words and wishes. They are greatly appreciated. Wish you all the best as well. God bless.

      1. Had just visited Your site and saw Your ‘Barren World.’ Afraid can’t give a ‘Like’ for:

        so dark and lonely
        her aching heart
        has become an asteroid
        a barren world
        devoid of love

        Sounds so sad and lonesome.

        On top of that You had mentioned something about bruises. Hope and Pray You are OK and Well.

        Could not comment on Your page as it was asking for a ‘Sign in.’

        Hearty Regards. 🙂

    1. Thank you for stopping by and your interest in my poetry.
      My best ones, need to think about that.
      Of the recent ones i would say “our little secret” “love hung in her closet” and “on the corner of love and poetry”

      Thank you for asking. Have a wonderful weekend

  6. Thank you for the advice. I liked the bit on ‘keep it realistic,’ I think that is something that we all needed to hear.for more related hearing iads ideas kindly visit my link website


  7. Wow, you sound like me….a lot: (busy, very busy and very lonely). I’m wanting to write my first novel also, but my plate is so full I hardly have time, and I had most of it up here when I had my blogs going, but in order to help my significant other focus on what he needed to be doing I took them down. But what is a novel anyway? I have a many subjects to write about….like my memoir, and I found a book in half price books about how to take all *my subjects* and combine them into a novel like for instance, adding a section of poetry. So….I’m trying to decide what to do first. Finish rewriting my youthful memoires, and publish a memoir or add a bunch of other stuff to make up a Novel. Your advice?
    You shouldn’t be so loney. I’m sure if your not me there’s plenty of people interested in you. I never get the resonces you do; in fact, usually no one chimes in at all.


    1. First, I agree with you. I am terribly busy all of the time. Between the busy blog and my novel writing, I do charity work too.
      This year I expect to get a lot more serious about my novel and dedicate a lot more time to it.

      It is a shame that you took down the blogs. Writers need a place to express themselves. You should pursue some kind of book. It is a great outlet and a wonderful way to reduce stress. (At least for me).

      Lonely isn’t so bad. It gives me a chance to write more. So, I don’t complain.

      Thank you for your lovely message. I hope you are doing well.
