Free novels for download →
As I said on the linked page, please download and read my two novels for free, all I ask is that you write a positive review for them on Amazon.

There are also links here to order the paperback version of In the Flat Field, my newest, dark cyberpunk novel and Kindle versions of ITFF and Blue, my first book. Thanks!

the art of glass and journals
I have some ideas that I have thought about before and even put together for a show, using old windows, found glass, paint, other media to create sculptures or assemblages that involve layers or a series of glass pieces that are attached to each other in ways that invoke seeing, vision, layers, and perhaps healing or the idea of putting bandages on our eyes. Need to do some sketches and/or get to...
Developing a Daily Journal Writing Practice

I enjoy the massive flow of information on the internet as much as anyone but I think that in some ways our media focus has taken away from our abilities to sit quietly and reflect and write and think...
