I'm committed, along with writers to building a community of authors using 21st Century tools to change the lives of children. The most important thing about me as a writer is my writer's creed - "Bore No One". I have been writing fiction for 7 years while I have been writing technical non-fiction for over (35) years.
Yes . . . there is a story about the difference in years of experience between the two genres but, since it's not a short story, I will not bore you with the details except to say, it heavily involves the movie De'ja Vu starring Denzel Washington. If you ever have the time - ask me about it.
This site limits me to the number of illustrations, graphics and photos I can display; but then I'm a writer . . . . not an illustrator, artist or photographer.
Lastly, my dog in the photo above - Yankee Doodle - (the best dog I've ever known) passed away in May of 2013. We were a team! And so in memory of her, she will remain on this page. Doodle was an American foxhound.
Expertise Hi Melissa. I'm a darn good writer and so . . . I'm currently looking for a literary agent to represent me. I have completed (March-2014) an Upper-Middle-Grade Novel for Adventure Loving boys titled: "The Nautical Adventures of a Boy and his Creature."
Skills I'm very good at the carnival game called "ring-toss", but then I practice a lot. But - A guy can only give so many Giant Sized lions and tigers and bears to his wife.
Location The Central Coast of California - voted the happiest place on earth by my canine friends
