Continually trying to answer the question...can a man of few words write a successful novel?

I'm a Mystery/Thriller/Suspense writer from small town USA who struggles everyday to balance my passion for prose against the need to be a full-time bread winner. Finding ways to devote more time to my writing is the challenge, but for now all I can do is follow this tug at my heart to wherever it leads. I'm here primarily to soak up all the knowledge I can from the writing-centric blogosphere, but I'll do my best to contribute by thinking of new and innovative ways to churn the writing pot.

Whisper of Memory - Book Release Party


* If you haven’t cast your vote for the WRiTE CLUB final match yet, please do so right after you’re finished reading this. *

** Voting for A to Z Video Challenge is now open.  Links to the videos can be found by clicking on my A to Z badge in the sidebar. **

I am very excited to participate in the release party for WHISPER OF MEMORY, the much anticipated follow up to THE WAITING BOOTH and book two of the Whispering Woods series by none other than my blogging buddy and real life friend, Brinda Berry.  It hits the virtual book shelves today and of course there’s much fanfare to be had.

Want to know more about the book?  How about a blurb:

Weapons training and winter formals… a deadly combination

 All Mia ever wanted was to fit in at Whispering Woods High. But being a portal-finder who dates a guy from another dimension sort of makes it hard. A month ago her brother disappeared, and agents from the IIA began policing people’s movements through dimensions. She’d trusted Dr. Bleeker from the local university when he’d told her the IIA were the bad guys. But even a girl with an extraordinary ability to sense things can make mistakes.

Now two people are dead, and as a portal gatekeeper for the IIA, Mia needs to find Dr. Bleeker before he hurts anyone else. And her boyfriend Regulus, an Agent for the IIA, carries secrets of his own. Between learning about weaponry, finding the perfect dress for the winter formal, and catching bad guys, who has time to fit in?

Not enough?  Maybe this book trailer will help:


If you’re hooked already here’s the link to get it on Amazon.  The rest of the links will be coming shortly and posted on Brinda’s blog.


Naturally there’s a contest and giveaway involved, but this one is a step above.  Brinda is giving away not only romance trading cards, but also a Kindle Touch or Nook Simple Touch.  The giveaway ends on April 30th and all you have to do to enter is follow the link to a nifty raffle tool.

Now I also told Brinda that to help celebrate her release I would answer a question as a fun way to tie in her book with a something interesting about myself. This is the question I chose:

High school senior Mia Taylor and her friends seem to draw trouble like a magnet.  Did you have anything out of the ordinary happen to you during your senior year?  Like a lot of schools, our senior class followed a tradition of senior skip day, but with a twist.  We always skipped on a Friday and spent the day/night at the beach (I went to high school in North Carolina, near the coast).  I ended up with a blistering sun burn, missed two days of school the following week, all because I was an idiot and didn’t know when to come in out of the sun.  Not one of my finest moments!  J

I hope you really enjoy Brinda’s book and wish her all the best with it.  I’ll have Brinda here for an interview next Wednesday, so please stop by and get to know her better.
