Books & Pieces Magazine was formed in 2017 to give a voice to new authors, a place where their short stories could be published next to a bestselling author interview, where they could learn tips and tricks from those who came before them, to find a community of writers and grow.

I wanted readers to gain valuable insights from all the content, helping them to refine their own writing, find ideas, encouragement, learn tricks and tips that other authors use, and find helpful.

Most of all, I wanted Books & Pieces Magazine to be a fun and enjoyable read.

I’ve had the good fortune to interview many authors, some giant names, such as Robert J Sawyer, Peter James, many bestsellers like Tosca Lee, J.C. Ryan, Mike Wells, to name a few. We’ve been had an interview with ‘Game of Thrones’ author, George RR Martin.

Books & Pieces Magazine has also helped me as an author. I’ve utilized skills learned in writing my mystery bestseller, ‘Texas Dead,’ and its sequel, ‘Angle of Death,’ as well as a critically acclaimed anthology of short stories ‘Distant Rumors.’
