My Current Project

I'm about to publish my twelfth book, Suddenly Gone! Grieving to Healing.  And Starlighters Mission 1 will also be in paperback.  I'm so excited.  


I finished editing my novel The Man Next to Me which is an expansion of my First Place award winning one-act play by the same name at the Southern California Writer's Conference.  It's available at Amazon for Kindle and in paperback form.


The Man Next to Me


A Southern California Writer’s Conference award-winning story!


George Gibson is on his way home from Los Angeles to Albuquerque on a Greyhound to see his estranged son, Donny and his grandchildren, Andy, Fletch, and Sue Beth.  He sits next to Pete Turner, a young and driven salesman who is bent on finding success.  The small trip turns into a giant quest for Pete as he becomes engaged in a tug of war between following through on a promise or fleeing.  Pete meets many interesting characters on his unexpected journey, each leaving him a clue that helps him to answer the question: Why me?



You’ll have to read The Man Next to Me to find out what happens to Pete Turner in this touching new story.

I am currently working on Book IV of the Nelta Series, which I should have completed by spring 2017. I'm in the final stretch.  It feels great to almost be done with the fourth and final novel in the series.  Then I have three more to edit and the series will be complete.


Also in the works:  My Collection of short stories, poems, and plays.  I should have those compiled by Christmas, so if you've missed reading any of my Monday short stories, stay tuned, 'cause I'll be consolidating them soon into my first Collected Works.

A little lizard hopped on my welcome sign. Cool!
Always take time to stop and smell the flowers.
I had so much fun meeting friends and sharing my stories.
