About the author

After several years devoted to poetry, followed by a few minor achievements as a professional song lyricist, I eventually decided to write a novel, culminating in the completion of The Poe Consequence, a supernatural thriller/human drama that received Books-and-Authors.net’s Supernatural Thriller of the Year, Kirkus Reviews’ listing as a top Indie book of the year, and a Finalist placing in 2017’s International Book Excellence Awards competition. Signed to a contract with Black Opal Books in June of 2018, it will be re-released through them later this year.

My second novel, also published by Black Opal Books, is entitled, You Say Goodbye. It’s a whodunit murder mystery featuring a Beatles influenced theme, a one-hit wonder ex-rock star, and a little girl with cancer who’s a big fan of the LA Lakers. The child’s character was inspired by the life, and unfortunate death, of Alexandra Scott from the Alex’s Lemonade foundation.

Although I currently pay the bills through a long career in the landscape industry, in my heart I've always considered myself a creative writer first and foremost. And as I've often replied when asked about my license plate that reads, Do Write, “I make my living through landscape, but I make my loving through writing.”
