WHY I WRITE
I believe in stories. I believe books are one of life's great pleasures. I write because human nature interests me. Before I start on a project, I spend years researching it. I read, travel, and interview people and take notes on what I learn. I immerse myself in these topics because they fascinate me. Finally, I write. When I'm done, I work with artists to create book designs that capture my imagination. The result is fiction steeped in real life.
I'm an independent author and don't have much money for marketing. That's why my books have so few reviews. Please support my work if you believe in independent authors. I'd also like to acknowledge you, my faithful readers! I appreciate your support.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
Please ignore my book reviews. Competing authors are posting dozens of fake reviews of my books on Amazon US, Amazon international sites, and Goodreads. These fake reviews always sound truthful and may even be done by reviewers with Real Name™ badges. That's the reason why some of my books have a low overall "star" ranking. These people have even figured out how to fake those "helpful review" buttons. This makes it appear that dozens of people agree with these fake reviews. There's an easy solution to this: ignore book reviews. Please purchase my books with confidence. All Kindle and print books are refundable if you're unhappy with your purchase. Thank you. --B.B.
