To quote Mark Twain: "My books are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water."
I specialize in writing realistic fiction; both historical and contemporary. I am blessed to have an overdeveloped imagination! I often get my ideas for stories from dreams.
I try to not write in a particular genre. In these times of mega novel series books, I think it's important to value the importance of the short stories, novelettes, and novellas. A great story doesn't have be a book the size of a dictionary. It can stand on its own and not have to be a trilogy or a series. Many people are so busy they do not have the time to invest in a mega novel. I think what sets me apart from a lot of authors is variety. I don't write trilogies or series. I'd rather challenge myself to NOT write similar stories.

And finally, "Mr. Barrow's Perfect Match" is a light-hearted story of found love and love lost.
