    Welcome to everyone who happens to stumble past here. Unless you were directed here by Dean, you have far too much time on your hands.

    This web site is for novelist and short story writer, Dee W. Schofield. (Shhhhh…. don’t tell anyone, but Dee is actually an open pen name for the bestselling writer Dean Wesley Smith.) I will be posting updates on the progress of getting one of many novels published.

    And who knows, maybe I will even put up here an original short story or two as time goes on.

    Right now, I (meaning me, Dee Schofield) have two novels out on editor’s desks. One is a science fiction romance called Dust and Kisses. After a time, I will serialize the entire novel here, so stay tuned for that. It’s pretty decent if I do say so myself, even though one reader said it had too many dead bodies in it to be a romance. I don’t think that’s an issue anymore in the world of zombie romance with parts falling off.

    A second novel I have out is called Subway Martians, a humorous science fiction romance, called paranormal these days. Following is the short blurb about the book. Hope you enjoy and will stop by at times. I’ll try to keep it interesting.

    Best in snarkness, Dee

    Blurb for

    Subway Martians

    Hundreds of feet underground, hurtling through the dark at seventy miles an hour, subway drivers see things no other humans see. Kimberly Oakley, subway driver and eBay doll seller, has seen her share of strange things over the years, but never before a Martian, especially one with blond hair, a perfect business suit, deep blue eyes, and a desire to die. She mows him down with her train as he smiles at her like he’s trying to pick her up.

    Turns out, he was.

    But not just for sex. He wanted much, much more from her.

    Can a doll collector and a Martian find true love?

    Maybe after the invasion.

  • Mystery Workshop July 29, 2016
    Mystery Workshop Spent most of the evening before dinner working on the mystery workshop in my office up at WMG Publishing.

  • Star Trek July 28, 2016
    Star Trek Yes, Kris and I saw the new movie tonight. Good Star Trek.

And I wrote in every series, (many […] […]
  • Smith’s Monthly Updates July 27, 2016
    Smith’s Monthly Updates I don’t talk much here about my magazine, but I have the covers down the side and I do talk about writing the novels in the issues. So I figure the magazine is just sort of an awareness of people who come here. But honestly, after spending the last few hours getting […] […]
  • Killing the Sacred Cows of Publishing: You Must Be Talented to Be a Professional Writer July 26, 2016
    (This is a vastly updated chapter on this topic from six years ago if it sounds slightly familiar. But it needs to be a chapter in the new Sacred Cows book.) Chapter Four The word “talent” has been used for a very long time to destroy writers. I have always believed that the word is […] […]
  • A Fresh Start and Talent July 26, 2016
    A Fresh Start and Talent Thanks to Kris, I got unstuck at around 3 a.m. this morning on the novel, finally. My subconscious had ground me to a halt at exactly the place it should have. So once I talked with Kris about where I was in the book and I realized a direction, I […] […]
