From the Author
I like to weave themes of art, poetry, philosophy and music into my books, and build secondary characters who are rich and nuanced (they think the book is about them, or they would, if they knew they were in a book.) I add in humor and fun conversations, too.
When I'm not writing, I'm often taking pictures. As a life-long sometimes-professional photographer, I love capturing images. Portrait are my favorite -- I even took the picture of cover model Shane Williams for the cover of my book Boston.
I love traveling, although I hate to fly. I enjoy drawing with my kiddo, cooking, and laughing hysterically with my sisters and brother about stupid stuff (usually inappropriate jokes - those are the BEST!) until our stomachs hurt and we're rolling on the floor because we're howling so hard. Good times.
I hope you enjoy reading my stuff as much as I enjoy writing it. Thanks for the gift of your time! Happy reading.
