Finally. After a long research and outlining process (don’t ask), this week marks the beginning of the dreaded First Draft of Silent as a Gun. It’s a thriller about a Private eye who struggles to get himself back into the game after devastating loss. And, of course, the fate of the free world is at stake.

I plan to keep an on-line journal and I invite your comments. I’ll throw in writing tips as we go.
