I’ve been writing for years. I’m currently writing two novels, one a mystery and the other a historical fiction. I also have a few short stories I’m editing and updating for submission.
Feel free to contact me, I’m always happy to hear from other writers, readers, etc.

About Amazon Ads
You can see an ad in the sidebar, and periodically you’ll see an ad in a post I write. I put these there because I feel you, as my reader, might be honestly interested in them. For instance, in this post, I linked to two different music CDs. I did this because I use these cds, and find them helpful in my writing process. I keep a rotation of Amazon Best Seller novels from the mystery / thriller genres in the sidebar, as that is what I write, and that is what I expect you read. So, it’s there to inform what others are reading, and to inform myself as well.
