    My Home
    Hello everyone, A dark cloud seems to have descended upon my hometown this week, so I wanted to bring some joy to those whom it's possible to bring joy to. Let's display just a modicum of class and not trash the town in the comments. You may feel free to belittle the poem, however, as it is my first one EVER.  What can I say, Shakespeare intimidates me.  That is why my first book was written, you know?  It's Romeo and Juliet with a better ending, (yea I said it). I'm now the doting daddy of

    Recipe: Vegetable Beef Barley Soup
    Vegetable Beef Barley Soup This is a pretty classic soup popularly served in the Eastern and Midwestern United States.  This soup, invented in 18th Century America was a favorite among working-class families.  As it was both warming and filling, it was served year round.

    Photo-Storyboarding
    Just a general post today.  After the weekend I will have some pictures to share of our Halloween.  I was thinking of what drives me to write the most after I start a project.  I think one of the more successful method is to visualize the cover of my book.  For some reason, it helps to drive my creative process.  Another method that I use is storyboarding...almost.  Mainly this involves me taking a series of photos and editing them to tell a story.  I can then hang those up and visualize the

    Restaurant Expose: Stuffed Banana Peppers
    Those who know me on a more personal level know that I have a passion for cooking.  I love nothing more than the sound of “mhmm” grunts when someone tastes my food.  It is because I love that sound so much that I have a tremendous respect for my ingredients and how they are cooked.  I have been accused of being picky at a restaurant, but never to the staff.  No, I tend to bottle up my aggression for the inevitable review I’ll write.  One of my biggest pet peeves in a restaurant is that plenty

    Recipe: Granny Smith Green Apple Pie
    So I haven't posted in a few days.  Hopefully, that has given you enough time to absorb some of the other stories on my blog.  Originally, I wanted a post every day for the first thirty days. Now that I've had a chance to review visitors to the site, I feel it's more prudent to post three times a week maximum.  That being said, today I bring an old recipe to you, and a new one to me. Granny Smith Green Apple Pie.  1/2 bushel of Granny Smith apples.  The apples were locally farmed and harvested

    Comedy or Drama? Trinity's Alternate Chapter
    Comedy or Drama?  Trinity's Alternate Chapter I suspect many authors go about deleting countless words on their pages.  Normally, I delete thousands, if not tens of thousands of words during the writing process.  I don't know why I chose to keep this half-a-chapter.  Perhaps it's because chapter 16 in the book is the exact opposite.  I had a hard time deciding if this chapter would be a comedic one, or more dark and dramatic.  If you read below, I guess you'll know which one I went with for

    5 Ways You Should Advertise Your e-Book on Amazon Alone
    Normally I hate to write list type articles.  In this case, I’ll make an exception as this information will be genuinely helpful, I promise.     For many authors, the same story plays out repeatedly.  Great, so you wrote a book and published it on Amazon Kindle.  You sit back and wait for those downloads to roll in, constantly checking the sales dashboard for a favorable update.  A question begins to form in your mind.  Why aren’t people buying my book? I think at one time; all authors have

    The Fallen Characters - Who Are They?
