CHANCE FOR REDEMPTION, a fantasy novella, launched May 30.
My e-book, BAITING THE HOOK, the sequel to TO CATCH A FISH, both co-authored with David V. Wilton, has been released by MUSA PUBLISHING. These are thrillers set in the South.
Although my book Time Will Tell (Musa Publishing, 2012), is science fiction, I have written in several other genres. These include speculative fiction, biographies, crime, mysteries and fantasy.
A Little More
I also like to write poetry, and I wrote thirty-four poems to open chapters for The Callings. The poem I posted on my blog for Mardi Gras was also published in Mobile Bay Monthly magazine. Publishers Bookbyauthor saw TO CATCH A FISH in Octavia's Bookstore in New Orleans (a very upscale shop) and asked me to submit a New Orleans story for their book New Orleans by New Orleans. I was flattered and I'm glad they’re using my essay “The Big City—Then and Now.”

I was inspired to write Time Will Tell because I wanted a change of genre. I like to experiment and explore the unknown—and outer space is totally foreign to me—to see what I can produce in a different field. It took a lot of research and time, about as long as it takes to have a baby, but I'm glad I tried something new.
My favorite thing about writing is seeing the characters come to life and being able to identify with them—love or hate them.
My story “Mom Made It” will be in the Midlife Collage April 8 contest! You can preview the promotional video: http://midlifecollage.com/video/

I also have a fantasy novella being published this summer. I don't have a release date yet. It's entitled CHANCE FOR REDEMPTION. In it, mercenary Jerome Strait discovers that he cannot buy his way into heaven; to be redeemed, he must relive his life and correct all the mistakes he made on Earth.
I've just completed a mystery/thriller entitled FATAL ENTANGLEMENTS, and I'm working on a sequel to TIME WILL TELL, entitled QUESTION OF TIME.
I am also working on a sequel to The Callings, entitled A Clean Slate, coauthored with Loretta Theriot. And I have a couple of other books in different genres that I may revise.
