Profile Information

In 2005, I got my first check for writing. I was hired to write a screenplay with specific budgetary requirements. It helped them get funding to increase the budget, so they changed the story from an adventure to a family film and hired a known writer for the final version. The good news: I got paid, was credited as Creative Consultant, and the experience spurred my enthusiasm for writing professionally.

The first novel I pitched was realistic when vampires were the rage – and I wasn’t pitching it right, either. I turned to self-publishing and have learned to do it myself. The up side of being my own publisher is that I get to be writer, artist, and computer geek – having to do it all is also the downside. I have multiple titles published and have earned a few awards. You can Look Inside via my author page at Amazon. I also write screenplays of my novels and  Running Away is on Lifetime – with significant plot and theme changes courtesy of the director.

I always have multiple projects underway – short stories, novels, and screenplays. I’m also editing and coaching other people through the self-publication process.
