I have recently partnered with two friends to start up Lovely pubs, an indie publishing company that had its debut at LitFest Pasadena on May 12, 2012. I was also a participating managing director for LitFest, the town's first book festival.
I'm working on promoting my first novel, "Amy's Own," as well as my partners works: "Where Are You Stuck," a self-help workbook, and "ISMS: A Faery Mobster Story," a stunningly beautiful, thoughtful, funny, and violent illustrated and narrated App. The "ISMS" narrator is British screenplay writer and author Pete Atkins ("Hellraiser II," "Hellraiser III," and "Wishmaster").
I am also Senior Editor for the website Hometown Pasadena (http://hometown-pasadena.com/), which allows me to do three of my most favorite things: edit, write, and photograph.
I am currently working on my newest work, "Keeping Sane, and Other Aspirations, by Samantha Stosur, an American Girl in the 3rd Millennium."
If you've read "Amy's Own," firstly—Thank You!
Secondly, if you would like to pass along your reaction, criticisms, or ideas, then I thank you, again.

What do you do when your mother torches your dad's La-Z-Boy in the driveway?
Amy's weaving around Charlene has evolved into a pattern of verbal head-butting. Charlene, a Walmart valued shopper and devotee of gin on the rocks, has always been "Mother" not "Mom."
After her father's death and her discarded first love returns, can Amy navigate the chaos?
Yeah, gin on the rocks sounds about right.

I thoroughly enjoyed this short story. It's humorous, jarring, and moving. A peek into someone's intolerable pain, the consequences of loss—both funny and angst-filled—and the attempt to address and move forward.
