Thanks for visiting! I’m excited to share my words and interests with you. My books are here, and you can find some short reads I’ve written too. I love to blog about bygone days, reflections, writing life, and details that form the bedrock of my novels and short stories.

Connect with me anytime. If Facebook, Instagram or GoodReads is more to your liking, you can find me there to see what’s happening.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

The Last Hoffman is a story about the reverberation of family secrets. It will renew your faith in second chances.
