“Haze” Update

Good morning, everyone!

Yesterday I said that a couple of nights ago I had the first 100%, completely sleepless night on my life thanks to my fibromyalgia. I said that I spent the night while awake pondering two WIPs that I have going. One of those I talked about yesterday – “Mojito Cove”. the other of those projects was “Haze”. Or, more accurately, what I’m now planning to be the second book of the series. I’m still working on Book 1 right now.

This new idea for Book 2 will focus the series as a whole, and provide an overreaching plot for the series as a whole. I spent hours thinking this over. I’m excited about the idea. I think you all will be, too.

For now, I’m not going to say anything about it. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve had ideas stolen before after talking about them on-line. I don’t plan to make that mistake again. I will say that Haze is a big city vigilante crime fighter character. Hopefully she’s something that you’ve never seen before. But, with Book 1 still being a work in progress, I won’t say much right now. Hopefully soon!

Stay tuned!

Speaking Out


Hello, everyone!

As you all know, I have fibromyalgia. For those who don’t know what that is, it’s terrible. It’s several different types of pain. It’s nausea. It’s dizziness. It’s depression. It’s anxiety. It’s memory issues. It’s chronic fatigue. It’s a lot of other issues, too – all rolled into one incurable disease.

As a bestselling author, I’m in a unique position to reach a lot of people. I would very much like to use that to help a fibromyalgia awareness group – be it as a spokesman, or in some other capacity.

If you run such a group, please get in touch via the “Contact” page on my website. I’d love to talk to you.

Harper’s Histories


Hello, all!

I’m back to work on the next sasquatch history article for Bigtruth. This is the 21st blog post I’ve done in the series. This one focuses on the state of Maryland. I would’ve had this one done ages ago if not for my fibromyalgia, and a bit of miscommunication.

Speaking of sasquatch, just a few minutes ago I was listening to an account of YouTube of a Native American tribesman who claimed to have been in telepathic contact with sasquatch. He claimed they travel to, and from Earth by way of energy portals. I’ve had enough odd things to happen in my own life that I’m not one to quickly dismiss anyone’s claims out of hand. Still, I firmly believe that sasquatch are a fully biological species, native to Earth. I believe them to be some form of primate.

What about all of you? And, please, no one waste time, or space, with posts claiming sasquatch don’t exist. If that’s your belief, fine; keep it to yourself, please. I’ve seen at least one of them, and had other experiences than sightings. I know they’re out there. But I’m curious as to what my readers think of them. Do you think sasquatch are a biological species of Earth? Do you think they’re extraterrestrial? From some other dimension? Let me know, please!

“Mojito Cove”

Hi, everyone!

My current project is a novella entitled “Mojito Cove”. It’s a mermaid story – much to our 5-year-old daughter’s delight. I’m most of the way through the rough draft. My fibromylgia has made it slow going, but hasn’t stopped me. I don’t want to say too much about “Mojito Cove” yet. So, keep watching for updates, and news.


Back To The Blog?

A while back I mostly stopped posting to this blog, in favor of using my Facebook fan page. Lately, I’ve been thinking about reversing that, and returning to this blog. What do you all think?

Even with my fibromyalgia, I’m still writing. Things just move MUCH more slowly now. But, there is still writing news, and other things, to report, and talk about.

So, what do you think? Should I start using this blog again?




It’s official. Something that we’d been almost 100% sure of for a while now has been officially diagnosed. I have fibromyalgia. It isn’t fun. And there’s a lot more to it than I ever realized before having to cope with it daily on a personal level.

I don’t intend to allow fibromyalgia keep me from writing, though. I’ll continue writing both for my fans, and for myself.

On a somewhat different note, if there are any fibromyalgia awareness, or research groups out there who would like to consider working with a bestselling, award-winning author to raise awareness for fibromyalgia, please get in touch with me via the “Contact” page of my website.
