I'm creating a 32 page print sample of The Garden of Midnight's Awakening. Do you like this burb? Three souls intertwined yet lives apart. Each fording passage through the garden of life.

Her first book 'White Gold' is doing amazing things. The only problem is not she's not quite Australian, even though she now lives out … Continue reading Wednesday Wordsmith Author Interview – Rachel Amphlett, Australian Mystery Writer

I started out freelancing in 1980, working mostly as a home health care aide for the disabled as my day job, and this gave me some material to write about in the Seattle area. As of 2003, I … Continue reading Guest Post – My Role as a Ghost Writer By Karen Cole
