A river begins with a single drop of water.

A book begins with a single thought. H

ope also begins with something small.

Kindle someone’s hope-flame today.


Today my hope-flame was tended and nurtured by my cat. She’s discovered the magic of the paper bag game, where she lays inside and I tap the outside. The real magic (at least for me) was when she trained me to start the paper bag game when she wanted.

Books also kindle our hope-flames. They inspire dreams, comfort us in the darkness of our lives, and soothe us when we’re troubled.

Who has kindled your hope-flame recently? Leave a comment, to be posted here and I will choose, at random, one person to receive my second book, Dragon Fire, as a thank-you for sharing your fire. Because the greater the fire, the greater the warmth, and the greater the light.

  1. I’m fortunate to have more than one person inspiring me lately. I belong to a wonderful community of writers, yourself included, who continue to show me what’s possible. You don’t have to be a New York Times bestseller to write works that grab people and give readers a much-needed break from everyday life. I’ve always had a passion for writing, and that passion continues to be rekindled year after year.

  2. Hi! I just wanted to let you know how much I liked your books. I found you originally while surfing the Loose Id website for something to read. But since I have a Kindle account, I went to Amazon to purchase your first book “Dragon Food.” You were surprisingly hard to find under a name search! I finally found the book under a title search. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I left, what I hoped was a nice review, on Amazon. I also read it’s sequel, and enjoyed that as well.
    I also wanted to thank you for writing longer then 200 KB stories. I just get so tired of those. The longer the better. It’s really difficult to get in tune with the characters with those type of stories. And I do prefer to identify, if not become the characters, when I read a story. Thanks again! That was such a wonderful rich world that you drew with your stories. I could easily picture more stories in the same arena.
    I look forward to your next story. 🙂

    1. Dear Naomi,
      It’s taken me forever to get back to you. The LGBT world is being shaken up right now. Thank you so much for your warm words!

      Between you and me (and I guess whoever happens to see this, although you’ll probably be the first to see it) there’s another book in the Dragon in Training series. It will be out later this year. Enjoy!
