Through the years I have written many songs, poems, reflections, and short stories. I have shared them in performances, recordings, and messages. Three of my stories appear in the following anthologies.
“Within This Circle” appears in the 2016 anthology Virginia is for Mysteries II.
“Friday’s Jewelry” appears in the 2017 anthology 50 Shades of Cabernet.
"Into the Fire" appears in the 2021 anthology Coastal Crimes: Mysteries by the Sea.
When not working full-time at my present job or creating in my writing room, I enjoy movies, music, and red rock mountains. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my wife Judy Morgan for believing in me then and now, for being my greatest inspiration, and for encouraging my creative nature.
I encourage you to return to this site for updates on the progress of my work. Thank you for dropping by!
Over the last few months, I have struggled with my writing. I have come to a decision that I am quite excited about. Under the current atmosphere of today’s world, the idea of writing murder mysteries or anything to do with the taking of life started bothering me. Even though I know it is for entertainment, I no longer enjoy contriving ways to kill someone. That being said, "Into the Fire" is my final murder mystery to be published. This is my conviction and has no bearing on how I view murder mystery writing or writers; it is just my personal feelings.
So, I am returning to my first love of writing, Science Fiction. I am already working on a new manuscript of a story that I am very excited about. I will share more with you later.
