I am currently the author of six books across a variety of genres. With much to say about the world, my writing became a natural outlet. My need to speak about the political world today birthed my newest novel, “Freedom Dies.”
Writing is a passion for me and not just a vocation. I find that it wakes me up in the middle of the night demanding to be put down on paper. Sometimes even when driving I pull over to get some little snippet down for my current project. I’ve had to train myself to check all napkins and paper towels, even tiny bits of paper for writing I might have done while busy with something else. Writing is just in my blood.
An avid reader, I have been influenced by some of the greatest names in literature, Ray Bradbury chief among them. Once even attending one special workshop in Palm Spring, I was fortunate enough to spend time with my mentor. Crediting Ray Bradbury for my early appetite for reading, he and Jack London became my best friends while I was buried in their works. Today I continue to read every chance I get. You will find my tablet always at the ready when I have a few minutes downtime. But writing has become the most important thing in my life, and if you think you see yourself in a victim or two of mine, it might just be true.
