When I was a teenager I was fairly skilled at drawing. I produced some good pencil images which sadly have now been lost. There was a drawing of an engine from a Rolls Royce Camargue. It was large, and the shading of it used up three pencils. I remember the hours I spent on its production during the summer holidays, and the music I listened to as I worked. I was destined to go to Art College, but family circumstances meant that I never got there. Instead, I finished up getting a job.
My working career started in Architecture, where with ink stained fingers and an adjustable setsquare I turned the architect’s concepts into technical drawings. Eventually the drawing boards were abandoned in favour of computers ... read more

Karen Docter writes two different kinds of romance novels....
Romantic Suspense w/a K.L. Docter: Women hunted by killers...men who'd die to protect them.
Contemporary Romance w/a Karen Docter: Romance...With a Kick of Humor!
Karen's contemporaries are cute & spicy romances. She loves writing about real men and women with dreams and goals that don't allow for a relationship just so she can throw them in each other's path...with a tickle and a smile.
Her romantic suspense novels (as K.L. Docter) are also filled with romance, although the dangers the hero and heroine face are intense, usually because a serial killer is bent on ending one or both of their lives before they can fall in love.

I have an unusual way of looking at the world. My wife, Sharon, says I'm weird and truthfully—I am weird. But there's a reason. Starting from nothing, by the time I was 26 I had a net worth of a little over a million dollars. I was making $250,000 a year—that's more than $20,000 a month net taxable income. I was really having fun. But 98% truth is a lie, and that 2% can cause big problems, especially with $4 million in real estate. I had a lot of debt—a lot of short-term debt—and I'm the idiot who signed up for the trip.
The short version of the story is that debt caused us, over the course of two and a half years of fighting it, to lose everything. We didn't tell anyone what was going on, but if we ha ... read more

I've covered the military for nearly 30 years in Washington, publishing two nonfiction books, one on Donald Rumsfeld, the other on the CIA. Six years ago this April, I drove from a park in Virginia to my home in Maryland with a rescued black Labrador retriever. I named him Jet, not for fur color, but for the way he leaped into my arms once his foster mom opened the crate. "He sprung like a jet catapulted from an aircraft carrier," I said.
They really do pick us, don't they. He quickly exposed me to an entirely new culture: the dog park and the eccentrics who come. After I observed the people and mutts over the years, I began outlining plot lines for a funny story that would try to capture our obsession with ... read more

As a terrified child, Jamie found the world somewhat overwhelming. After doing what he was told to do for the first twenty-something years of his life and obtaining a Masters in Mathematics, he decided that the fast-paced, money-orientated world of work wasn't quite for him. Since that time he has spent much time hitchhiking, cycling, and even rafting down the Danube on a homemade raft. During these journeys, he has largely relied upon the kindness of strangers who offer him a place to sleep, as well as camping out under the stars.

For as long as I can remember, I have been a storyteller. My childhood was spent immersed in make believe and countless hours of role-playing games. At long last, I finally sat down and typed out some of the things trapped in my mind, desperate to get out. I’ve often been accused of having an over-active imagination and being a hopeless daydreamer, writing fantasy stories seemed like the obvious endeavor.
I am a self-described, modern Bohemian; more than content pursuing a life that few people would describe as normal. I have had various jobs: plumber, security guard, teacher, just to name a few. None of these became my life’s calling, but each taught me a little more about the thing all literature—regar ... read more

I've been writing for a very long time, what seems like my whole life, taking it seriously from the time I was about 11. Now, at 46, I think I may be starting to get the hang of it: Say what you feel, as passionately as you can, but always with an ear turned to those who are listening.
Most of my more serious work is done at live performances, which i do totally extemporaneously, channeling the mood of the room as my fingers play on the guitar. You can see some of that if you go to "my" website. (Open Mics Austin is a platform I created to showcase the Spoken Word scene here in Austin, TX. Only a small role in which i play.)
