My essay on my book, George Wallace: An Enigma, appears on Ezine Articles at

Also, the second edition of the science-fiction thriller TIME WILL TELL will be released February 3, 2017, by Decadent Publishing.

Although three of my published novels are science fiction, I have written and published in several other genres. These include speculative fiction, biographies, crime, mysteries and fantasy. I like to experiment and explore the unknown to see what I can produce in a different field; it takes a lot of research but I enjoy the challenge! Another challenge, and one of my personal favorites, is developing different characters and watching them come to life. Being an avid people-watcher, it’s exciting for me to see the characters personalities develop and their lives intertwine with one another. ​Hopefully, the audience will identify and relate to them as well​.

Currently, I have a few new, exciting novels in the works! My mystery thriller Fatal Entanglements and my novel Joe and Jo are both under consideration by a publisher. I am also working on A Clean Slate, coauthored with Loretta Theriot.  I hope you enjoy exploring the site and learning more about current and upcoming projects!
