I’ve been a professional writer for almost 20 years with feature and short screenplays written, short stories and poetry published in various lit magazines, and over 3.5 million of my 34 novels (plus one lonely non-fiction book) printed in numerous languages by different publishers around the world.
Right now, I’m working on two thriller scripts, sporadically working on a novel, and studying in the Masters program at ScreenwritingU. Whenever I can fit in anything extra, I take on an editing job. Busy days!
I have a strong belief in following my passion to make a positive difference in the world, and I do my best in my written works (and my editing/mentoring) to encourage others to find their personal power.
For years, my motto was an old Japanese proverb: “Fall down seven times, stand up eight.”
Recently, I’ve switched to a new one, one I’ve made up myself: “Believe. Create. Inspire.” – which is also the name of my upcoming newsletter for my adult readers and film friends. First, believe I can do it, then create it, and finally, allow that creation to inspire both myself and others.
If you sign up for either of my newsletters, I hope you enjoy them.
