My name is Mike Pettit, Author,Writer, Novelist, Scribe, whatever. My alter egos, John Locke, Jack Marsh, Damian Wolf, Kimo Kanoa, and their pals live in my head 24/7, non-stop. They are like tracer rounds ricocheting around my brain. I know there are other like me out in the cyber world going though the same thing.

This is the go-to joint for everything suspense and mystery, a stake-out for writers that want to share their thoughts. Come on in, drop anchor, grab a cup of joe (or latte), and let's talk murder...or writing about it.

I shouldn't give away my trade secret to writing fast, hard hitting dialogue, but hey, I'm not stingy, and I like to read dialogue and narrative that hits you in the stomach, making you scream for more. The secret is music. Before I start writing a chapter or paragraph, or even a sentence, I'll think of what it is I want to accomplish with the words. Is it a chase sequence, a shoot out or fight scene, maybe a tender moment. Music does the trick, it sets the mental mood.
I want to share the music that helps my characters say and do their best. Go to my YouTube channel,  If these particular videos / songs don't do it for you, then create your own channel. It's fun, and i guarantee the words will flow.
While your on my channel, leave me a message or subscribe. Let me know you stopped by. Spread the word about the site, and I'll do the same on yours
