Novel 13 in the bag!

Last night I finished my 13th novel, two days before the end of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  Hooray!  Hooray!  Now I have some editing to do – but I can go on with life!  My other projects are off ‘hold’ now.

Great Devastation Trilogy

These are the 3 books: After the Great Devastation, The Hidden City, Immediate Search. The first book came to me in a complete dream, even the names of the characters. For the 2nd and 3rd books, I had to use my imagination.

Happy Birthday, Freddie

Have you ever been obsessed with someone? I was so in love with Freddie Mercury, after seeing Queen in concert in 1977, that I wrote a book of poetry for him. I sent him a copy in 1984, and now the new edition is available in paperback. 

Remembering Freddie today, on his 70th birthday.

The opposite of a best- selling author


I love to see when an author is named as a “New York Times Best-Selling Author.”

I believe I can safely say that I am a world-wide worst-selling author.  A few of my books have sold 0 (zero) (none) (not one) copies (unless you count the copy my dad bought from me).

May I announce the World’s Worst-Selling Books:
“No One Like You”
“The Red Cloak”
“So How Is THAT a Bully?”
“What Really Happened in Mexico”

You can’t get lower than zero!

Happy New Year!

I hope you have a wonderful 2016!

No One Like You

No One Like You

If you are short on reading materials, I would like to suggest one of my books: “No One Like You.”  Sarah has a problem: she is in love with Sammy, who is an artist/musician, and her father does not approve of him.  But Sammy is unlike anyone she has ever met.  He is so sweet, so loving, what can she do?  He wants to offer her everything.

By the way, please take note: the title is NOT “No One Likes You.” (Thanks, Dad.)
