"It takes a tightrope artist of a writer to create chapters that successfully delve into a killer's thoughts without revealing his identity in the process, but Sugarek achieves this with a dance of introspection ..." Midwest Book Review of the Angel of Murder
Hello there. My web site and BLOG (which now reaches 16+ million viewers on social media) are dedicated to writers, creative writing, story telling and the theatre arts. Sharing my ideas, offering other writers help and encouragement. Three years have now past and my web site has morphed into a platform where I am reviewing best selling books, interviewing other authors about their writing process, and supporting the theatre arts.
I will work hard to engage your interest and share valuable topics, about writing, writers and theatre. The craft is a long process and in my experience has taken me a whole lifetime. I am still learning every day. What I do know is that to be any good at writing, YOU must write!
Included in my weekly posts; once a month a best-selling author will share their writing world with us in an interview. Don't miss it! I am offering you a FREE audio book. You have a choice between a children's book, a murder mystery, or general fiction. Sign up for my blog! on my home page!

Susie and her father are just pulling up to the dockside in a white festooned boat, to where her groom and two hundred guests are waiting. For the father of the bride, it's the last straw. He reaches for a flare gun, and before Susie can react, fires it into the air. Unfortunately for the sky diver, flare guns cannot be aimed. The flare hits the parachute and ignites it.
