Coming Soon: "You, Vampire", an interactive novel (iNovel) where you are a vampire and the hero of the story! The story is both romantic and action-packed and there is an original game system for resolving combat and other choices in the novel. The ruleset has already been published and is available as a free eBook here and at major retailers (You, Vampire: Core Rules). If you have already downloaded it, I'd love to hear your comments... =)

I have long finished all my coursework for my Master's degree (MAT English) but haven't taken the comprehensive exams to go on to my thesis to complete the degree. I am a proponent of the Illichian form of education (please refer to "Anarchy Against Ignorance" in "From a Box in the Attic")
A week ago I made a life decision to become a full-time professional writer/publisher I have just reedited "From a Box in the Attic" and it is now published as a 2nd edition here on Smashwords with added content (and author commentary on each piece!) I'm also writing more short stories and finishing up several novels and an autobiography/memoir (the latter will contain a lot of frolicsome stuff from the above list...keep an eye out... ;) "From a Box in the Attic" will no longer be free. Its quality now deserves a price tag. I've updated the pricing, but please wait till the 2nd edition is pubd so you're sure to be paying for the new version and not the old, free one...thanks...
I am considering starting a blog and "twittertweeting"...details to be posted here...
I'm buying a domain name and will have my author/publisher site up shortly. I will post the URL.
Last but not least: Thank you to all my readers! The number of sales and downloads over the past 3 1/2 years have put me at double the average for a self-pubd author. Please feel free to connect with me at any of the addresses given on this page. I love to hear from readers and do not mind critique (in fact, I welcome it). I will continue to pub more worthy lit and I hope you continue to enjoy it...Cheers!!!
