Epic Storytime

This past weekend I did something new. I participated in an event at my local Barnes and Noble. This was the first time I’d done any public reading of my books and it was a lot of fun. I met some great local authors and had a great time. I hope to be able to do...

An Emily’s Song Teaser

It will be available on May 14th, but can be pre-ordered now. In the meantime here’s a little teaser to wet the whistle so to speak. He looked really familiar, but she didn’t remember seeing him at the wedding. She knew she’d seen that face, and she knew that if...

In The Wild

Well, this was exciting! For the first time I was able to see one of my books on the shelf at a bookstore. In this case it was my local Barnes and Noble (Menlo Park Mall, Edison, NJ). I signed the copies they had there (with the approval from the manager) and will...

How a Story Becomes a Book… part 1

Let me start by saying that experiences may vary. This is not a definitive treatise on the matter, but my experience with my latest book. Had I been a celebrity the process would have been very different. Ten years ago I opened a document on my computer and typed the...

Spring – Catch it while you can!

Spring in New Jersey can be quite beautiful. It can also be fleeting. It’s been a cold, rather miserable spring up to this point, but the last two days saw temps reaching up into the 80s! Spring at last…. more like summer, but we’ll take what we can...

Officially Released!

ONCE UPON A PRINCESS has officially been released! No need to wait any longer to buy a copy for your very own! And why should you? What’s in it for you? Well, (very humbly speaking, of course) I think it’s a great story with a feisty young princess that...

An Official Review

In a little more than a month, on April 1, 2018, ONCE UPON A PRINCESS will be available to the public. But today I was lucky enough to get a review from Kirkus Reviews. It makes it all seem very real!...
