I grew up in Los Angeles and still live there today, so I certainly know the city well enough to make it the backdrop of my two novels, The Poe Consequence and You Say Goodbye.  Having started as a poet during my high school years, I eventually branched out as a song lyricist with limited professional success until awareness that I wanted to write a story suddenly washed over me one day like a soft, encompassing waterfall.  Working through the number of years and hundreds of hours necessitated by each story presented a tremendous challenge, but through the maze of difficulty came the rays of achievement.  Whether readers of my books enjoy them or not, to borrow a sports analogy, I left it all out on the field.



A personal, life-changing event occurred in my mid teens that transformed me into a creative writer, and although I paid the bills through a long career in the landscape industry, in my heart I’ve always considered myself a creative writer first and foremost. It took years of piecing together reasons for occasional bouts of sadness and esteem issues to finally understand the fact that I needed to answer that calling and to do something about it.
