I Wanted You to Be the First to Know

Thank you for being a follower of this site. I wanted you to be the first to know about the project on which I’ve begun working today which will hopefully someday become my thirtieth book. (My twenty-eighth book It Was Her Eyes is scheduled for release in about two weeks, to be hopefully followed by a new children’s book titled Flora Belle and Dreami Dragon in January 2017.)

My newest project is attempting to turn my short story Here into a novella. As some of you my recall, Here is a story of an unique utopian community set on a lush tropical island.  The novella will introduce internal and external threats, plots, and twists, which are likely to destroy the vision, hopes, and reality of all those on the island.

With Love,
