If we were having a cup of coffee…

If we were having a cup of coffee together…I’d tell you how I woke too early this morning and had that first hot cup, while planning the day. Maybe today my final read-through of my first novel will be done. It integrates religion and philosophy, yet I hope it is still a gripping story. Should I send it to an agent, a publisher in India, or upload it as an e-book? Haven’t yet decided.

If we were having a cup of coffee together…I’d tell you about the short stories I have written over the years, and now I am trying to find them and put them together.

If we were having a cup of coffee together…you may ask me about my other books, and I would tell you about them–each of them could have been expanded into several, each is dense and packed with information. I often read some poorly researched article, and see that a thousand better articles could be written from just two of my books on religion.

If we were having a cup of coffee together…I’d tell you that I have just received an invitation to give two talks to school students at a literary festival on the 26th–still need to find out the details.

And of course, if we were having a cup of coffee together–I’d ask you to adopt one of my rescued cats!

As a writer

I’ll be writing about my life as a writer, my books and my ideas. I have been writing and keeping a journal for much of my life, but became a published writer somewhat late. Now I have eight published books on history and religion, and have completed my first novel–have not decided on a publisher yet for this. I’d like to use this blog to connect with more readers and writers.
