Thank you for finding your way to my author page. We lovers of the written word have so many choices as to which authors to support, which genres we like, and which new books to explore. And is there anything more exciting than discovering a new author?
I’ve been very blessed to have words – writing them, editing and reading them – as a huge part of my life for the better part of my life. I consider it a privilege to be a writer. And I feel just as blessed to be an avid reader. I believe the two go together. So I hope that you enjoy exploring my work.
On Saturday, July 15, 2017, I had a first staged reading of my new play “Just a Note” at the James Bridges Theater at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and TV. It is my first foray into writing for the stage, but I am encouraged to see where this leads. If all goes well, we are making plans to produce it in October or November of 2017 in Los Angeles.
PURCHASING MY BOOKS: In the world of self-published authors, Amazon.com has now established this wonderful platform – Createspace – to help us realize our vision of being published. And while I know many of you have quick links and accounts set up on www.Amazon.com, we writers benefit more when you purchase our books through the Createspace site. Though I am honored if you purchase my books any way that suits you!
