Omerta1BlogMy Dearest Mynxers,

I’m happy to share with you the final book in the Battaglia Mafia Series. Ten years of imagination has brought us to the conclusion of my most epic story telling in my career. I have gain and lost fans along the way, but through it all I kept pushing toward this ending. I know that for some of you it will not be enough and for others it will be too much. But overall I feel that each of you will walk away with some satisfaction in the conclusion.

I read an article recently about Game of Thrones. It explored the fans disappointment (including myself) with the ending. It talked about the challenges an author faces in serial story writing that can lead to a fan revolt. When it came to pantsters and plotters. If you don’t know a plotter is a writer who takes the time to outline their entire body of work and follows the outline to the letter to bring the series to an overall conclusion. A plotter is methodical and very disciplined in their storytelling abilities. A pantster is not. A pantster lets the story tell itself. And in developing a saga the … Read the rest

Bella MafiaHi Mynxers! Let’s talk Battaglia!

Many of my Mynxers have been patiently waiting for their promised installment into the Battaglia Mafia series. My goal was to complete Bella Mafia after my hospitalization and before the new year comes in. But recovery for me has been strange. To be honest November and December have both been difficult months for me creatively. I am grateful for my recovery, yet something is off in the universe and it has veered my thoughts, my creativity down different paths. This is why you have Boss and Out of Time. And soon you will be reading The Wedding.

You see we writers are human. And we take in everything around us. When the election and nasty drama of hate and intolerance spread through the world my faith was tested in how we love and care for one another. That is why Out of Time was conceived.
