As a child, I was insanely devoted to PBS, vintage movies, classic novels, and day-dreaming. Many years later, not a whole lot has changed.
My most rewarding career has been as a theater specialist for youth. Crafting games and plays that make the past and community spirit cool in the eyes of kids has been my greatest joy. I've led over 500 history and art related programs for youth and their families. At the pinnacle of my theater work, I adapted and staged a full scale, outdoor production of 'A Christmas Carol' in a historic downtown setting. Mother Nature added her own special effects by producing wind and snow precisely on cue.
Novel writing is my focus now. My lighthearted historical romance, Rules of Engagement, has been released by The Wild Rose Press. It's amazing to be able to hold your mind's imagination in your hands.
I've also turned a Nathaniel Hawthorne short story into a full-blown New England Gothic/Fairytale gone bad. I love the imagery and the feel of a good Halloween story. The title is Nothing Gold Can Stay, and it debuts in October, 2023. How fitting! The cover by Kris Norris is spot on.
I've got a mind vault of stories begging to be brought to light. This is my special place to share thoughts and dreams about writing.
