Where are you going,Where do you go,Are you looking for answers,To questions, under the stars?– Dave Matthews Band So…Where Are You Going? It’s a great question. Simple. Succinct. But try to answer it quickly. You probably can’t. Yeah, context is part of the issue (Um…Tony…do you mean where I’m going right now, or for summer vacation,…

There’s a quote by Ernest Hemingway that influenced this entire novel: “When you begin to live outside yourself, it’s all dangerous.” And I believe that’s true. Ten years ago, I could only dream of writing because in the dreaming I was still living inside myself. I was still safe. I could do or not do, change or not change,…

What’s past is prologue, they say. In many ways One Gray Day, the final book in The Parker Trilogy, is a culmination of the work put into the six books that have come before it in The Millionth Series… I cannot tell you how excited I am to publish this book. In many ways, its…

I’m not one for dragging out news, either bad or good, so I’m just gonna spit this out. The bad news? The release date for One Gray Day has been pushed out from the end of March to mid-May. Why? Well, I guess that’s the good news. Now a member of The Society of Professional Editors and…

There’s something exciting about reaching the end of a story. And something sad. You’ve gone on a journey through another place, taken a tour, without a map, through other people’s lives. Does it matter that they’re fictitious? I don’t think so. We’re all characters, in one reality or another. Each day we rewrite ourselves, and…

In East L.A. there is a church without a priest. Bad things have happened and he’s gone now, trapped in his mind and roaming a foreign land…searching for the one he loves. Is it a woman or is it God? Time will tell. The L.A.P.D.’s Hollenbeck Station is also without someone. Detective Evan Parker has reached…

About fifteen years ago, I sat cross-legged on the living room floor of a small apartment near my home. Around me were members of the Writer’s Critique Group I’d just joined, including some who would become lifelong friends (Bev, Bruce, Vance, Kim). But this night was my very first time sharing pages with them and…

On June 17th, One Way or Another will be released. Why that day? Because it’s Father’s Day. And I can honestly tell you that my Dad helped me every step of the way to get this one done. Setbacks at work, special projects, long hours, scheduling crunches, you name it…I lost count of how many…

When Another One, Book 1 of The Parker Trilogy, was nearly done, I had a decision to make: do I or don’t I bring Maggie Kincaid, a key character from another book (The Snow Globe), into the story? The laughable part was that I thought I had a choice in the matter. Maggie, on the other…

There’s love, unrequited love, love lost, and love found. Then? There’s forbidden love. In One in A Million, Book 1 of The Fasano Trilogy, I wanted to explore this by way of Kyle Fasano, a married man who has an affair. From there he’s sent on a mission. Well, two missions, really. Indirectly, he must try and save…
