My debut novel was released March of 2021: Both Sides of the Border. It won a Firebird Book Award, has received the finalist distinction from the International Book Awards, and received a five star review from Reader Views. Even though it has been well received, I am anxious to improve my writing skills. This webpage presents challenges that I would not think of on my own and these exercises, I believe, will help my next novel to be better. I have already signed contracts for 11 books, two more novels and the others are middle grade readers. I like to tell stories applying a Christian worldview to everyday problems.

Being quarantined with a talkative child is like having an insane parrot superglued to your shoulder.

Does 'runing late' count as exercise?

I feel mildly cheated when I see human nature value stories written of distress more highly than stories that jerk no tears. I like to write about things in my biography. Still, since I passed the age where crying was a form of communication, I have been blessed with few incidents sadder than constipation.

During time of shortages, I might run out of toilet paper, but if anyone needs 40 plastic bags stuffed into other plastic bags, I will be the queen of this crisis.







AJ McCall: It's always good to be prepared, LOL. I know who to come to when I need some bags...! -

Got a question, a second edition of a book is basically that book re-written, right? I want to re-write a book I published about three years ago...



Brett Matthew West: A key question might be what benefit would the second edition have for readers of the first edition? Needs to be more than minor edits of misspelled words and a few scene detail changes. -

AJ McCall: Actually, it's a pretty short book and I wanted to make it longer since the entire book is around a hundred pages or so. I want to almost a completely new story for this character; give it some depth in order for my readers to get to know her and the other characters better. -

AJ McCall: *almost make -
