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 who 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.
Featured Poem of the Month
Crisp, smoky air.
The sound of stillness.
Wind whispers through familiar trees,
Snapping off fragile leaves
Endless night walks.
Fog obscuring streetlights.
The blue flicker of television sets beam from nearby windows.
The evening news can’t reach me out here.
My mind is clear now,
But my heart is still heavy.
I stop to pet my neighbor’s cat.
With the November chill against my face.
I pull my hat over my ears,
As misty rain drops start to fall.
I stare up at the hazy, full moon,
So amazed by the beauty that surrounds me.
Suddenly an owl’s cry slices through the silence.
The smells of comfort foods drift through the air.
I am alone with my usual random thoughts,
Wishing the November chill will never end.
