At Heart

At Heart

I have a single abiding passion, to wrap truth in great stories. Stories that make you feel something. Stories about people who matter to you. Stories that speak to your soul. I don’t pull any punches, though, don’t skip rocks over the surface of the human experience. People in the worlds I create suffer and die. Only a few of them are truly evil, but all of them are flawed, make foolish decisions, hurt themselves and the people they love. Oh, but they are noble, too, some of them. They’re brave and generous, kind, loving and so gloriously, joyfully funny!

I invite you to join me on a journey into their lives. Come with me and I’ll introduce you to a death-row inmate, a coal miner’s widow, a psychotic stalker, a crusading journalist, a diabolical dope grower, a bonkers old lady and a frightened, guilty little boy--and all their friends. I hope that when you reach those two three-letter words at the bottom of the last page of one of my books you’ll see life or the world just a little differently than you did when you started Chapter One. Fiction is its own truth and truth has a way of changing people.



"Oh, and about the 9 and the e beside my name. Say it fast, emphasis on the 9. That’s how you pronounce my first name -9e. (Think “rhymes with tiny and shiny, NOT with skinny and penny.”)

I have soooo many stories I want to tell you, so many worlds I want you to see, so many people I want you to meet. People in trouble, most of them. Big trouble they didn't ask for but there it is. Ordinary folks like you and me who are forced by circumstances to fight for their lives. And then, smack in the middle of their everyday worlds they encounter the unexplainable. It's always the game-changer.

Welcome to my world. If you'd like to know more about me, I'm easy. Click on Meet Ninie and you'll see. My life isn't really an open book; it's more of a pamphlet, and you are cordially invited to read it. I'd love to interact with you on Twitter, Facebook Fan page, and Goodreads. Or come visit with me at 9e's Kitchen Table, a Facebook group where readers and I hang out. I think you'd like it.
