    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.

  • Pathological Need for Ideas August 15, 2018
    Something That Might Free You… I have heard lately from a few beginning writers who are afraid they won’t have enough ideas. Now I hate to admit this, but I have no ideas. Haven’t really even thought of an idea for a story or novel for decades now. Never occurs to me. I just write […] […]
  • Already Feeling Better August 14, 2018
    Very Annoying… But since I started eating very healthy, lower calories, more protein, and got my exercise going again, I feel better. I knew that would happen but every time I am shocked. I am over 5 miles walking per day (10,000 steps for my stride), a new streak starting, and have run at least […] […]

    Got a Letter Today… A very real private letter from a very, very frustrated person who had just seen the Sacred Cow posts I did all those years ago.  (Some are dated but they are all still here.) The writer was thanking me for talking sanity. The letter was heartbreaking, described how it had taken […] […]
