New Endeavours

Hi All — My latest project, PANTHEON, went ‘live’ today, with its very own website. It will be a ‘serialized’ novel served up in chapter-sized posts for easy reading with, I hope, the full novel being offered at a later date. For now, I hope you will join me in following my characters as they strut their stuff across the ether of time and space for your reading enjoyment. Power, politics, intrigue and nefarious machinations abound here, on Pantheon, a world were winter reigns seven months of the year, along with the cold, distant, and calculating Odessa herself: Aerian Caligisto. Enjoy!

Fabulous Free Fiction

Bonjour Everyone, I hope you all had a great week, and are looking forward to reading this weekend. Which brings me to the purpose of today’s post, to let you know that I’ve re-vamped the Wry Writer website, and I’m in the process of reposting a lot of free fiction—mostly short speculative fiction, but also some romance. “Finding love it isn’t always easy, especially when you are convinced you have a soulmate somewhere, waiting for you. As Kate Mackenzie finds out—having spent half her life going from one bad relationship to another—only to find her soulmate advertising for her in, of all places, her favourite newspaper.” — Soulmate I will also be ‘serializing’ a number of my novel-length works on the blog, adding new features, and creating a few more ‘downloadable’ ebooks and zines for your reading pleasure. So, if you’re in need of something short, quick, and, hopefully, entertaining to read this weekend, stop by and give the blog a visit and let me know what you think. All feedback greatly appreciated, as is your …

Aiming For The Stars

This weekend saw me hard at work on a new project that I’ve been working on for several years now. Inspired to give this one a second chance not as a TV series [which languished in development hell] nor as the book I’ve only half written, but as an online project—I’m building a website. What I hope will not be just any website. But an interactive writing project open to those dedicated enough to want to join in. There will be secret missions, assignment, spaceships and space stations, political intrigue, machinations, and corporate congloms hell bent on running everything in our lives. Sound familiar? Only what’s happening today will be happening in our future, almost 150 years from now, when we’ve finally established a presence in space. The Chinese and India having established bases on the moon, and planning on a full take-over on Mars. In a future where corporate war and take-overs are fought with smugglers and pirates, designer drugs, and designer humans. Does this sound like a project you would like to be …

In A World of Words

I collect things. I collect a lot of things. But some of what I collect are words. I love words. I love them so much, I scribble them down in an on-going collection of Moleskine notebooks. Yes, it’s an addiction. One I’m happy to feed on a daily basis. Words, like many of the things I collect, enrich my life. Because words are endlessly fascinating, they hold power, the power to sway, to make you laugh, to make you cry, to make you stop and think. They have the power to uplift, to change, to mutate us. They’re beautiful, and poetic, singly or in multiples. Through words, we live each and every day; we describe, we share, and yes, through words, we even fall in love. But don’t forget, words can also cut, they can hurt, and they can destroy. Every word has meaning … so choose your words carefully, make your words count; fashion them. Polish them. Perfect them. Because, with words, you tell people who you are.
