Why I Write

I write the Raja Williams detective mystery series in part because I noticed that too many of the popular books and shows have succumbed to the contagion of gruesome, graphic violence and pornographic, perverted sex. The competition for an audience seems to be pushing art into the dwindling spiral of raw, horrific pain and hot, steamy sex, even combining the two.

I’m no prude or pacifist. Sex and violence are part of living, but I also believe that good art doesn’t have to rely on those to have an impact on a reader.

The truth is, I do want you to buy my books. When you do, you are giving me support as an author that buys me time to write.

In exchange for that support, I will give you interesting characters and enough mystery, thrills, suspense and emotion to keep you turning the pages without rubbing your face where it doesn’t belong.

It’s what I call good, clean fun.

That is something I can always use more of in my life, and I’m betting you could, too. And that’s why I write.
