The Bookstore

I started reading a couple of years before kindergarten and started writing stories and poems early in public school. Whatever talent I may have had brought me some early recognition and encouragement from my teachers, and I had poems and essays featured in various school publications. With that early boost in confidence, I have continued to write throughout my life. I was eventually a newspaper and magazine columnist for more than two decades, and a professional corporate writer for ten years before my retirement in 2017.

I have written and seen published five fiction and five non-fiction books and published hundreds of essays and articles. Sales of my non-fiction books have raised thousands of dollars for various charities and revised second editions of my five novels are to be re-released later in 2023 or 2024. Please check back later for updated information about that.
