Expand your writing horizon

We tend to stick to what we know, or what others say they want from us. But why?

As a writer you are a born creator, so expand your skill set and try something new. For instance, I began writing novels right out the gate. I’ve never cared to read short stories because it felt like a snippet to something bigger and I was always left wanting more.

However as I am honing my craft, I discovered short stories are the best way to tighten my skills. When I started writing the shorts, I started reading them too – now I love them.

One day I was approached to write a 15 min screenplay. HUH, I never wanted to do this before, but I did it and guess what – I enjoyed the new style it required!

Don’t pigeon hole yourself, you never know what else you will like, and perhaps even be more excited to work on.

Through experimenting, I have a song, poetry, kids picture books, YA novels, horror, crime, sci-fi, a film produced and another complete full length movie written.

Stay fresh and innovative and check out what all you can do too!

Help an indie filmmaker to bring the Demon of technology to life and get your name listed as an executive producer on IMDB

The short film was written by me, based on my creation of the Demon Brimorie, from the novella, Sudden Death. 

Tagline “Death, there’s an App for that.”

Write this, that, and the other!

Keep your writing life interesting. Why bind yourself to only writing novellas or novels? Branch out, get your name far and wide. Take chances, you never know what’s going to be your big break if you never try.
