Love’s Intensity is now available in print format on Amazon. What a journey this has been from the initial release to the relaunch. Although the process took seven years (to the day), I am very pleased with the results. I only hope the rest of the series will be completed in less time.
Second edits on “If It Kills Me” and “Danny R.O.S.S.” are now complete with release dates on the horizon. But first, proofreaders will look for any lingering errors. I’m glad I kept pushing through difficulties to get these manuscripts ready for the world. I look forward to sharing these stories with you later this year.

Proofreading corrections are almost complete and second edits on two other manuscripts are about to begin. However, it’s been quite a challenge dealing with the current stresses plaguing our planet. Much energy goes into remaining positive and hopeful in the midst of such sorrow. I pray that healing comes and very soon. Please do what you can to stay well.

Applying corrections based on proofreads of one manuscript and first edits for two others have been keeping me rather busy. The re-release of the first manuscript has been a long time coming and more will be posted as the release time draws closer. I look forward to presenting two cover reveals to you later this year as well. Come back here for the latest news.

Since my last post, I found out that a story I wrote for a local writing contest didn’t make the cut. This type of news is usually disheartening for a writer, but I chose to not let it get me down. Instead, it pushes me to improve my skills and create more stories I’d like to read. Besides, I now have part two of a short story I wrote last year. This is how I turn a loss into a win.
Posted July 27, 2019
The first half of 2019 has brought on many unexpected challenges and triumphs. I pushed myself to enter an Army sponsored writing contest even though the deadline drew close (less than a week) without so much as an idea for a scene. I was pleasantly surprised by the results (semi-finalist) for Battle at Kitee. I’m so glad I didn’t listen to my initial thoughts or you wouldn’t have the chance to read this story now or ever. See what else I’ve been up to in my latest blog post.

Back in November, I had a blast in Rehoboth Beach at a Beach Fun book signing event along with other authors whose short stories made it into the anthology. I signed my name and a message at the beginning of each Zale’s Tale. I’m so glad I entered the contest.
To top things off, South Jersey Writers’ Group voted me ‘Writer of the Year.’
Having now been a part of this group for three years, I consider many of them friends. I’ve learned much from these consistently encouraging folks. All writers should be this fortunate.
Posted August 24, 2018:
My short story Zale’s Tale was chosen as one of twenty-five stories set in Rehoboth Beach, DE to be included in Beach Fun by Cat & Mouse Press. The anthology will be released in the fall.
Another short story, Adelle and Brandon: Friends for Life, will be released on August 29th on Amazon. Reviews are much appreciated.

I attended the Lawnside Heritage Day on a rainy day to sell my books. I’m so glad the tent kept the copies and customers dry. I am busy at work editing manuscripts this summer. Oh, and check out my YouTube Channel.
I’m still working releasing Love’s Intensity in print. I will post here when it’s ready for sale.
Lastly, If It Kills Me now has an editor. Time to get busy.

Check out The Capital City Book Fair and come on out if you can on May 1st and 2nd. I will be among many vendors who plan to be there. It should be a great event.

I recently held a book signing at The Treehouse for A Beautiful Girl, Real Purpose: You Are Special, and Life Experienced. It’s always neat meeting new people about my books. It’s even better when those people become friends who hang out for a bit to talk about life. Thanks to everyone who purchased copies.
I also received news that the paperback format for Love’s Intensity will be available soon. I can hardly wait.
Posted July 4, 2014:
Real Purpose: You Are Special has been released:I’m excited to announce the release of one of four poetry books. So proud of Haleigh’s work on the cover. Buy the print version here and the Kindle format here.

I signed my 4th book contract!: Wild Child Publishing contracted If It Kills Me. I am very excited and can’t wait to witness the birth of the cover and its humourous story of an average guy who found out he’s fallen for his roommate’s girlfriend.
My Navy SEAL story, Danny R.O.S.S. (2011 NaNoWriMo winner), didn’t fare so well, so I must figure out where to submit it next.
I have also begun transfering scenes from sheets of paper to computer files. I find it amazing how I can be sucked into a scene I wrote months ago and manage to find where it fits into the overall story. It would be less challenging if the scenes belonged to the same story.
Lastly, Andrea Cooper, agreed to host me on her blog on January 25th. I’m grateful that so many authors are willing to help each other reach a bigger audience. Visit my blog on February 1st for a chance to meet her.

Happy New Year!:The year has only just begun but I already have a long list of things to accomplish. Topping that list is the upcoming release of Billiard Buddies and the transfer of scenes from sheets of paper to computer files.

I had a great time at the 2013 Arts and Authors Extravaganza at the Mansion in Voorhees, NJ, on August 18, 2013. Many talented authors and artists were in attendance. I am currently waiting for more information on another event on August 24th. It’s a busy month.
On August 15, 2013, I’m very excited that I finally found the time to write during the past week. I also had a brief encounter with rehearsing in a friend’s play for the last three weeks. For now, that opportunity is on hold, but it was a neat experience.
On Sunday, August 18th, I will be attending the 2013 Arts and Authors Extravaganza at the Mansion in Voorhees, NJ. I can hardly wait.
Stay tuned for the revelation of the cover for an upcoming novella.

On February 17, 2013, I attended the 2nd Annual Heritage Cultural Book Fair at Burlington County College. It was a great time.
February 2013: So, since the last time I wrote, I finished my initial run through of the teen romance manuscript. The editor has since returned it for further tuning. With the minor issues fixed, I am ready to deal with the meatier stuff. Editing is a lot of work, but I am totally enjoying every second.
October was a busy month with the Collingswood Book Festival, a Vendor Event in Oaklyn, and a book signing at Black and Nobel in North Philadelphia.
On Saturday, September 8th, I joined the Youth Advocate Program (YAP) in Camden, NJ for a Youth Explosion where vendors, singers, and dancers were in attendance. YAP handed out free backpacks – all displaying “A Beautiful Girl” on the front – to the youth in attendance.
On August 18th, I attended a book event in Willingboro, NJ at the Willingboro Library where each author donated a copy of their published works – books or DVDs. Spoken word artists were also in attendance.
