Laura Hamby and I have been best friends for over 12 years. Through thick and thin, health issues (pesky surgeries), divorce (mine), and moves (both of us), we've been there for each other.

And the next day....

We're trying to drag the Muse out of her beachside hammock, pry the booze-filled coconut shell from her hand,  chain her reluctant ass to the chair and prepare to spew massive quantities of prose onto the writing screen. Where's the glow? Why the ...

I tend to write stories with some sort of paranormal edge. The fictional town of Gable Cove was created with just that in mind.
