What would you like to know? Something brought you to this page, this blog. I can’t tell you everything about me. Some of that I haven’t figured out for myself. However…
I am a writer. I write because I love to read. In fact, I’m a book junkie. I need to read. I want to climb in books and live there. I want to meet the characters, walk in their shoes, fight their battles, fall in love with their heroes… Oh, I do go on, don’t I? Anyway, what passionate reader doesn’t dream about being a writer? Ah, perhaps that’s just me. Does that mean I’m living the dream? Well, maybe. I’m sure every writer’s dream is to end up a best seller or at least modestly profitable. Nevertheless, an aspiring author knows this is a marathon not a sprint.
What do I write about? I have published five books in a series on Amazon. The novels are set in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where I lived for 25 years. They are stories about ordinary people with families, people who fall in love and sometimes find themselves in outrageous circumstances. Add some suspense, humor, family dynamics and good conversation and voila! Please visit my Author Page or see The Bucks County Novels page for a synopsis of each of the titles. My debut novel: Three Empty Frames won first prize in The Writer’s Digest E-book Awards for Mainstream Fiction. I have a stand alone historical novel in the works, which I hope to have completed and ready for publication in 2020. My poem “Just Burn” has been published in Diverse Verse, A Poetry Collection and my short story “Dissolved” has been published in Pennsylvania’s Emerging Writers 2018.
On my blog, I share my short stories, research and some of the lessons I’ve learned on writing and editing –including errors and blunders– and the things that move and inspire me. You will also find my poetry, art and photography –my other grand passions. I love the idea of connecting with other creative people who are trying to live their dreams, as well. Honest feedback is always welcome, just promise to be respectful and courteous. And above all else, know that I am very happy to meet you!
