I write all the time. Every day. Always have.
I’m also an avid reader who owns hundreds of hardcover books–and even more paperbacks and e-books. Oh, and I’ll study anything. (LOVED those graphology lessons!)
I inherited the two sets of encyclopedias, the 25-pound dictionary, and the Roget’s Thesaurus my parents bought when I was growing up. If you only knew how many times one of us ran to those books to resolve a family dispute… I thumb through them occasionally when I get nostalgic, but mostly use the Internet for research these days.
I don’t much care what I write about, so long as I write. That’s probably why, in addition to publishing a mystery novel and a business book, I’ve also published several dozen magazine articles, a few short stories, a monthly newspaper column (for 9 years), and hundreds of insurance education texts, courses, webinars, and seminars. Now, I focus mainly on fiction.
If you’re interested in my nonfiction and insurance writing, you should visit my other website, Faulkner Education Services.
I just finished co-writing a mystery novel with my pal, Herb Holeman, and we’re in the process of finding a home for that. I’m also about 2/3 of the way through the first romance novel in a series about the Farrell family. I’ll keep you posted.
