It’s been a long road...just look at all those rejections. Never stop dreaming!

Most everything I write, whether it is a novel, an essay, or a short story is very much a part of my life. It is the world as I remember it..

I rarely make anything up entirely. Rather, I pick and choose from things I’ve seen, felt, done, or experienced..and I give that to my characters. In this way, we are both (my characters and me!) learning from the truth of the fiction.

In other words, I use my writing as a journey of self-discovery..and hopefully, I can take someone along and maybe they can feel a little less alone.
