about me

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.

This is amazing. Just the sort of thing authonomites will not get because it is too original, and too unorthodox. (I apologize to the few writers here who have the courage to not conform and suffer the price. I'm not talking about you.) But come on now!!! Jesus! Genghis Khan is original, smart, en... view book

What We Live For I read your first four chapters. I’ve always enjoyed watching people from a distance, like at concerts, or while waiting for the light to change, wondering what their stories were, knowing that most were likely as colorful and complex as my own (perhaps more so).

Apryl, Awakening was a shocking surprise for me. How is it that a book, this well-written, can be so poorly neglected by authonomy readers? I have just finished sampling two other books, ranked among the top 100, which I could not in all good conscience back. OK… Now that I got the rant out of m... view book

OK... I went from "Is There A God?" to "French 101" Yes, there seems to be a common thread running through these stories... not. But seriously, "Is There A God", though well-written, didn't do anything for me. Whereas "French 101" made me smile. Yes, it's funny, but what really made me smile i... view book
