It was a pleasure to sit down and talk, via Skype, with longtime author Alton Gansky recently on his show, Writer's Talk!
We discussed all kinds of things and this really brings you up-to-date on me, my writing, the new series, etc.
Book Clubs & Bible Studies...
This morning in Metro Atlanta I met with a group of guys at California Dreamin restaurant, called Men Step Up.
We discussed my new thriller, Fear Has a Name, and how it relates to how we live out our lives as Christians in a world that can be cruel, challenging, scary and unfair.
If your small group of book club would like to do something similar, contact me and we'll see what we can do to help you facilitate that!
This is Gail (left) and Marty (right) from the Starbucks in Atlanta where I do a lot of my book writing.
Thanks to them, to Liz, Charese, Sam, Lindy and the whole team for making things just right for work away from home. Coffee's always perfect.
Also, thanks to the regulars who always uplift my spirits, including Andy, John, Leon, Steve and Craig, John, Andrew, Tommy & others. This has really become a prime spot in my writing life. Thanks to all.
Glad to be today's guest columnist over at Suzanne Beecher's remarkably popular website, DearReader.com. Man we have had a ton of responses to this column.

Guest on "Seriously Write" May 28
Glad to be a guest on the "Seriously Write" blog today.
Although I love the classics and literary fiction, I'm pretty much a "blue collar" writer.
So, my tips aren't deep or lofty, but I'm hoping there is some practical advice that can help you there.
Trying out the new environmentally-safe cup from my favorite local Starbucks. You purchase it one time for $1. It's dishwasher safe.
You bring it w/ you each visit to Starbucks. It's supposed to last up to 30 dishwashings. Comes with lid. Keeps coffee pretty hot (that's my main concern).
There's your update for today.
I'm working diligently on book 3 in the new series. cm
See You on Twitter?
Having a lot of fun with Twitter these days and would love to have you follow me there--I'll likely follow you back!
Just click the bird and I'll see you over there!
Dorothy was right...
There's no place like home.
Even though I've lived in Atlanta for 26 years, something about northeastern Ohio is still 'home.'
This is a souvenir my wife got me on her most recent visit back to the north coast! Thanks honey.
I recently had the opportunity to gather with about 50 other Christian author friends in Nashville for a weekend retreat. It was like therapy for me to be around others who go through similar challenges in the writing/publishing industry. Thanks, guys, for a great few days. #batteriescharged
New Facebook 'Page'
My new publisher suggested I start a fan page on Facebook, so I've converted over.
I plan to keep up with the new page just as I did with the old one. Sorry all of your nice comments didn't transition over.
I hope you'll go check it out and 'Like' the page, if you haven't already. And feel free to leave a comment.
To get there, you can click the Facebook logo at the top of this page or just click the cover of my new book to the left. Thanks!
