From Smut Writer to Fiction Writer – A Response to a Book Club Member

I am always looking for feedback on my books and stories.  While they are not easy to come by because smut rag writers tend to draw a very private audience, every now and then one comes along.  That was the case yesterday when I received this review of my book A Victim’s Revenge – Missing in Plain Sight. I saw your tweet about your new novel and misunderstood. When I went to your author page I found this one and thought I found it. I am glad I was wrong.…

Success is built around honest friends

Writing is more about patience than creativity

I had a few new readers reach out to me and it was strange that they had questions that were very similar.  They asked me about my inspiration and thought process when writing.
