About meAfter retiring from a twenty-five year career in designing custom lighting fixtures and light sculptures I moved to the Sonoma County wine country in Northern California, and turned to writing. My first novel, a sci-fi endeavor written fourteen years ago and titled THE GENES CONSPIRACY, will never be published, since in the intervening years most of what I had proposed in the book has become reality.
I am not a “genre” writer, but instead follow my feelings as to what needs to be said, usually very enjoyable, but sometimes not, depending on the content, as the variety of my published books will show. I formulate the beginning, middle, and end of a general theme and then let my strong characters take over from there.
My currently published e-books are THE HOUSE OF INDISCRETIONS (a woman determined to keep her home, whatever the cost); THE ROYLE BLUE BLOODS (a four-generation dysfunctional family empire which eventually destroys itself); JEREMIAH BASCOMB – A HEART DIVIDED (a runaway at fifteen, a business mogul by forty); DEATH IN EDENVILLE (a heinous crime and its unforeseen ripple effect); and HOW WELL DID YOU KNOW STANLEY? (a zany romp through the adventures of an astute but introverted businessman seeking romance in strange places). POLA—A BIOGRAPHICAL NOVEL (Based on the life of Pola Negri—from poverty to ballerina to stage actress to movie superstar and princess, with a backdrop of two world wars.

About my library"Death in Edenville" was copyrighted three months before the shooting at Columbine High in Middleton, Colorado, U.S.A. I wrote this because of the escalating violence in schools at that time (no shootings as yet)in hope that people reading it would understand the consequences of certain actions and attitudes and their ripple effect.
My latest release, "Pola--A Biographical Novel" is based on the fabulous life of Pola Negri--from poverty to ballerina to stage actress to movie superstar and princess.
"The House of Indiscretions" and "The Royle Blue Bloods" are novels about not very nice people, while "Jeremiah Bascomb--A Heart Divided" deals with a runaway at fifteen who becomes a business mogul by age forty through hard work and a bit of luck, though haunted by a secret well kept.
"How Well Did You Know Stanley" is simply a zany romp through the adventures of an astute but introverted businessman seeking romance in strange plaes.
