Hi friends!

I’ve recently had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of an award-winning author when she reviewed two of my books, “Essex Valley: A Quiet, Nice Little Town” and my very first, “Missing Elizabeth.”

She left me terrific reviews for both. I really couldn’t be happier, but the reason for this post is because with her kind words, she’s given me such an incredible ego boost! I was at a point with my current work-in-progress, “The Mink Man”, wherein I was close to setting in down; I just couldn’t concentrate on it. I was beginning to think my writing literally sucked. This writer has left me with such an incredible feeling that, while I’m still struggling to make Mink Man the best it can be, I know that the story I end up with, will be a good one. I’ll never please everyone, so I’m not gonna worry about it. All that matters is, if I’m happy with my work, and can entertain some — or hopefully, most —  who choose to read it, then I’ve accomplished my goal.



Wish me luck!

Hi, friends! I’ve entered my latest release, “Essex Valley: A Quiet, Nice Little Town” into the Best Book Contest! A terrifying yet exciting experience, and I’m now happily anticipating November, when results are announced. Keep your fingers crossed — all hail Essex Valley and my main characters, Evan, Stevie, Josh, Brian, Freddy and Kate! Lunch at the Purple Dragonfly, anyone?
