I can’t help the fact that I see the world a little differently. My only excuse is that I was in psychotherapy in 1970 at age 22 (courtesy of a family life where I only had a toe-hold on reality) and then got hooked and went into training in 1973. I hung around that wonderful, weird world until finally I opened my own practice in 1990 and I’m still there.
These past forty years of experience naturally coloured how I see life, the unconscious world is more familiar to me than it would be for most people and many things we would take as mythical or fantasies are every so often part of my everyday life. Like the young client of who was a typical blue collar tow truck driver, except that he would get visits occ ... read more

Like many of my characters, I grew up in semi-rural South Georgia, gorging myself on equal parts classic literature, historical romance, and horror. Back then, it was all about Gothic. Since I've grown up, the dark stuff still has its appeal, but my tastes have changed. After reading and writing my way to three degrees including one in English, the classic literature overstayed its welcome, the historical romance gave way to contemporary, and the horror... well, it just got too darn scary.
These days, I spend most of my time dreaming up new and inspiring ways for men to fall in love on the page. Hey, it's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it! But the truth is, a story is nothing without a reader, so I really ... read more
