What 'cha Doin', Savy?

Working on my next book, Transcendence!

What the heck is that?

Immanuel Kant defined the term transcendent as "that which goes beyond any possible knowledge of a human being."  It is beyond anything we are able to know because we lack the experience or the ability needed to understand.

What better title for a love story about a cavemen who lacks the ability to communicate through language, and the modern-day woman thrown unexpectedly into his world?


It’s said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn’t have the ability to comprehend language?

Ehd’s a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness.   He’s strong and intelligent, but completely alone.  When he finds a beautiful young woman in his pit trap, it’s obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate.  He doesn’t know where she came from, she’s wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache.  Still, he’s determined to fulfill his purpose in life – provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.

Elizabeth doesn’t know where she is or exactly how she got there.  She’s confused and distressed by her predicament, and there’s a caveman hauling her back to his cavehome.  She’s not at all interested in Ehd’s primitive advances, and she just can’t seem to get him to listen.  No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive but beautiful man is a constant – and often hilarious – struggle. 

With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months.  As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.

Coming in February, 2014!


Definitely a different kind of character than you are used to from me, and far more a romantic comedy than filled with violence and treachery, but I think you'll enjoy a romp in Ehd's head.  He's pretty amusing.

Now tell me the truth - what do you want more: the story itself or pictures of @savage_trainer dressed as a caveman? ;)


Merry Chisrtmas Everyone!

Whether you celebrate for religious reasons or not, I find this time of year a wonderful opportunity to let all the important people in your life know how much they mean to you.  I'm so grateful to my family for allowing me to pursue my dreams without too much flack, the encouragement of my friends, and of course the MASSIVE support of all those who have read and enjoyed my work.

Merry Christmas to you all!  I hope you have a festive and relaxing day!
