Thank you for visiting
With the avalanche of books being published every year , and the thousands upon thousands of authors clamoring for your attention, I am truly grateful that you have decided to visit my site.
You are one of more than 30,000 people to visit my website since its inception and I sincerely hope you find something here worth your time.
My mission is to write clear, direct, and emotionally honest fiction and poetry which is entertaining, accessible, and which, though rooted in experience, transcends the personal and touches upon universal themes with some relevance to everyday life.
I have published three chapbooks, Along the Highway, Terminally Human, and In the Maze.
I am very excited to say that my poem "Suppertime at the Nursing Home" is included in the first ever print anthology of Hospital Drive, the literary and humanities journal of the University of Virginia Medical School. The anthology, a beautiful 7" by 10" paperback book is available on their website for only $4.50, which includes free shipping. To access their website Click here

Their free e-books reach 9000 + readers per issue and their free online issues reach 40,000 site visitors per year. Paperback issues are available for about $10. To read my poems click here.
