Growing up, I enjoyed the 60s TV series, The Twilight Zone (that and dirt clod fights). I remember thinking that if I ever wrote stories, they'd be like Rod Serling’s − quirky, inventive, and diverse. I remained true to this idea. I’m now on my fifth novel, a work in progress, The Last Warbler.
Though none of my stories fit neatly into a particular genre, they do share a few things in common: fanciful premises, touches of humor, subtle romance, and a pint of quirkitude.
