The Ring cover.jpg

Latest Release!

Two women, strangers, from culturally different neighborhoods struggle with their fathers’ deaths, each coping in her own way. Fate brings them together, and when certain disturbing truths are unveiled, they discover they have something in common that is inconceivable and shocking. And it all started with “the ring.”

Says Readers' Favorite: I would highly recommend The Ring to fans of tense emotional dramas, cinematic and emotive writing styles, and for readers of accomplished literary fiction everywhere.

Purchase here on Amazon.

I write literary fiction. Click on the BOOKS tab in the menu bar to learn what each of my novels is about, including a link to the first chapter. Some of my main characters are female, others are male. One of my books could also be classified a "cozy mystery." Another one a "coming of age" story.

This website includes links to valuable resources and articles related to writing and publishing (RESOURCES). Each month, I post a different chapter (36 in total) from my “How To” book (BLOG). If you would like to be notified as to when a new chapter is posted, be sure to sign up for e-mail updates (SUBSCRIBE).

If you are a new or aspiring writer, I think you'll find this website of interest, as it contains information and resources to help you get your book written and published. I created this website along with my book How to Write, Publish, and Promote a Novel to help writers avoid making all the mistakes I made when I first started writing novels. If I had known back then what I know now...well, you can fill in the blanks.

The blog portion of this website is fairly new for me--I started out posting everything I learned about writing, publishing, and promoting books on a general website. When this became unwieldy, I updated everything that used to be on the website and then published it in How To Write, Publish, and Promote a Novel. My blog includes excerpts from my book as well as articles I've written for various publications.


Please feel free to share pages on this website and blog with others via your social media pages. And do keep in touch with me with your comments and questions (ABOUT). I love hearing from visitors.


I wish you the best of luck in your own writing projects. If you have a question about the writing process, self-publishing, or promoting your work, please feel free to contact me.
