I really appreciate you taking the time to explore my website, where you can read excerpts from my novels, screenplays, poetry, and other creative projects.
Unlike most writers whose inspiration comes from reading the work of other fiction writers, I find that I’m more inspired by music and musicians. In my opinion, there isn’t a more personal form of communication and creative expression than music. You’ll find that many of my characters are also heavily influenced by music, and as I’m writing I always imagine the film in my head and the music I want to use for every scene.
I like to put my characters in situations where they are forced to step outside of their comfort zones, push the envelope to achieve their dreams, and never say die when faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles or overwhelming tragedy. I’m not interested in writing about characters that play it safe and limit themselves based on what society dictates, so you will see that I always try to challenge my characters at every twist and turn.
So enjoy checking out my web site and meeting my characters. They have lived in my head for so long, so it means a lot to me to be able to finally share them all with you.
Featured Poem of the Month
Stopped at the intersection.
Not sure which way to turn.
There isn’t a perfect way.
No clear choice to make.
If I could turn back the clock and reverse the course I took that day
My life would be an open highway.
Clear sailing without interruption.
No obstacles in my path.
Hesitation equals defeat.
A life spent in reflection.
Enough regret to fill a thousand journals.
A collision from which there is no escape or chance for meaningful recovery.
