WELCOME!!!

Androcles chilling at the beach

Androcles chillin’ at the beach

(Blog and News below this greeting.)
Glad you could come to my site! Yeah, yeah, I know. I’ve got M. L. Buchman hornswoggled into thinking it’s his, but what do authors know?

Squat! That’s what they know. That’s why they need us Muses.

What, you think this guy writes those steamy military romances and fur-raising thrillers without my help? Leave the dude to himself and we’d get nothing but contemporary romances and that SF/F stuff. (Of course, I must admit I got kinda snuffly during the Angelo’s Hearth series, but hey, chicks dig that in a lion. And the Deities Anonymous series had me roaring and kicking my paws in the air—which got all kinds of sand in my fur, but it was worth it. I’m gonna get him to write another real soon.)

So, c’mon in, dig around, there’s some smokin’ stuff here. (No, I promise, I didn’t bury anything you don’t want to dig up. I’m a classy cat.)

There’s free stuff too! Swing on by for the Ides of Matt every month from the 14th to the 20th for a free original short story. And (insider’s tip so keep it under your hoodie) sign up for the newsletter and you get another free story with each one. Cool, huh? (You can thank me later.)

Now go explore, I think I see a beach lioness giving me the eye.

Light Up the Night -released!

NS-5-Light Up The Night-700I’m THRILLED to announce the release of the latest Night Stalkers novel! Trisha O’Malley had finally found her match in Navy SEAL Lieutenant William “Billy the SEAL” Bruce.

Not only is he willing to go undercover and face down the pirate lords of Somalia, he’s also willing to go head-to-head with Night Stalkers pilot Trisha O’Malley. What neither of them is ready for is when they go heart-to-heart!

Every book stands alone, but click here for the full Night Stalkers chronology.

The reviewers are already down with it, too:

“Besides the excellent characterization of strong women and the men attracted to them, and romantic and sensuous sex scenes, Buchman brings signature technical knowledge… A great addition to a superb military-romance series.” -Booklist

Light Up the Night is the perfect blend of riveting, high-octane military action interspersed with tender, heartfelt moments. With a sigh-worthy scarred hero and a strong Irish redhead heroine, Buchman might just be at the top of the game in terms of relationship development.” -Romantic Times, 4-1/2 stars, Top Pick for September

Video Madness strikes M.L. Buchman

Okay. I’m about to say something I never imagined I’d ever say in public…or in private for that matter.

I have a YouTube Channel!

I know! Pretty weird, huh? What happened was, yet another person asked where I’d gotten the idea for some story. It’s the number one question writers get and makes us craziest. Why? People are seeking the “Magic Key” to story. And, well, I think I can finally explain what the “Magic Key” is.

It’s personal!

That’s it. I mean that literally. Each story that I write comes from somewhere inside. It comes from a desire to go play over there with cool helicopters or perhaps understand something down inside me about my values or someone ticks me off and throws down a writing challenge gauntlet (which of course I can’t just leave lying there) and I write a story in response. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to answer this question for myself as well as my readers.

So, I sat down with my muse, a very short furry lion named Androcles, who spends his day lounging around in a terrycloth bathrobe. (He tells me that female lions dig guys in terrycloth bathrobes. Who knew?) So, he and I recorded a little video of the “Story Behind the Story” for each of our titles and we’ll continue to do so. You can find the individual videos along with the book details, just click on any book title and scroll down, it’s right below the description.

There’s also a menu option now, “Cool Videos.” Or you can watch the intro video below and click on the little subscribe button to subscribe to my YouTube Channel (did I really just say that?) to get the Story Behind the Story.
