  Men and women do not think alike.  You, being either one or the other, already know this fact.  However, you may have trouble writing it.  When it comes to male / female psychology, it helps to think in terms of Alpha/Beta personality types.  However, your plot conflicts won’t be believable unless you keep your […]

Ever wonder if Ouija boards and Mediums really speak to spirits? While researching the séance scene in my #1 best-selling Romance novel, SCOUNDREL FOR HIRE (which is currently on sale!), I read about the Spiritual Telegraph, which was a popular way for Victorian Americans to contact their Dearly Departed during an intimate gathering of friends around a parlor table.
