Struggle. Adventure. Love.

These are the three elements in any good story. Everything else is background.

And now for something a little different...

So I'm a big romantic softy at heart. My wife and I watch Ghost over and over and I still cry at the end. I think WALL-E is the best love story ever written. A trash compactor and a featureless egg fall in love and the viewer laughs and cries and celebrates along with them? If I could only write half as well.

Anyway, I did weave a love story into my novel The Weaving, and my online friend and fellow writer Rebecca of Victory Tales fame challenged me write something a little more focused on the eternal dance between man and woman for her series of romance anthologies. I did so, and she liked it enough to include it in her Christmas anthology.

Available November 15, a steamy, definitely for mature audiences collection of romantic stories, all with a Christmas setting.

Hardcover edition of Haunted!

Pill Hill Press is making available for I suspect a limited time a hardcover edition of some of their anthologies. The one that a story of mine, Home Schooling, appears in is on the list. To check it out, head over to

On an unrelated note, I am working with Rebecca of Victory Tales on final edits of a spicy story to be included in her Christmas romance anthologies this year. Yeah, I'm a big romantic at heart (as the plot of The Weaving should have indicated) and my all time favority film is WALL-E. A love story between a trash compactor and a featurless egg of a robot, with no dialog? Them's good writers!
