I am often asked how I am so “prolific.”
Is it just me, or does prolific sound like a communicable disease, like the kind you might catch from a public toilet? Well, whatever it is, I don’t have it. I do, however, have a fairly strong work ethic, thanks to my father, who would admonish us every time we goofed off when we should have been working, “Don’t just stand there playing with yourself.” My mom loved this just as much as my brother and I did, of course. Especially when he hollered it out to us on the basketball court or baseball field, with all the other (normal) parents around.
With his words of wisdom resounding in my head, I published five books in May of 2012. I will publish another in November of this year. There is no end at sight at this point. But there are no super hero powers involved. It’s a very simple secret: when I finish one book, I don’t stand there playing with myself (!), I start another. Maybe I take a short break to rejuvenate my brain, but I keep it short and stick to a schedule. And then I write.
Sure, you’re thinking, so do I. Many of you do.  I learned from some of you.
Some of you don’t.
