After much agonizing and debating, it’s all settled, and I’m thrilled to share with you the cover of book 1 of The Forgotten Child Trilogy. Here it is!

There’s much I could say about this book cover. I’ll explain it all in more detail at another time, but I wanted to get it out there. I hope you like it as much as I do. I’m going to be revealing book covers 2 and 3 soon as well, and I even like them better!

But for now, I can’t wait to get this book into the hands of readers. A timeline will be available soon. Release date not far away.

A New Book Cover & New Promotions!

Well, I did it. I decided to change a book cover. Here’s my new book cover for my novel “The Recluse Storyteller.”


I decided to keep the recluse’s figure as she stares off into the distance, but this time looking at the tree on the hill, which reminded me a lot of the tree from the story. The recluse tells the story of twins in the 19th century, who climb the hill from their house and look out over the valley in hopes of spotting their father coming home. It’s one of the four poignant stories she tells, but this one is mixed with a little mysticism and magic when the father appears to one of the girls under the tree.

The e-book version of the novel has recently expanded its reach beyond Amazon and is available at Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, and many other fine vendors.

I also have a great promotion coming later next week for my latest novel, “A Love Story for a Nation.” Stay tuned!

Cover Reveal: A Love Story for a Nation

ALoveStoryforaNation Cover LARGEI’m happy to reveal the cover of my new novel. I have a book cover designer whom I’ve worked with on three of my novels and he gave me three different options to choose from. It wasn’t easy to decide as I liked all the different options, but in the end, this is the design that I choose.

I liked the simplicity, the barbed wire, the heart – it all resonates well with the story so I’m real happy with it. I would love to know what you think.

This novel will soon be going on Kindle Scout. If it is not chosen for publication, I will be publishing independently in July.

I really like this story, and I’ll be talking a lot about it in the coming months.

I’ve currently been writing various synopses and one liners which describe it, and I’ll post those soon as well. I always appreciate feedback.

But this is an important day for me. It tells me that my fourth novel is soon to be available. I can’t wait to see what people think about it.

And as always, I greatly appreciate the support.


The Cover Revealed: The Reach of the Banyan Tree


The Story: Chip Carson intends to marry a young Vietnamese woman named Thuy until a tragic accident lands him in prison, forever altering the outlook of their relationship. As he struggles to cope with their strained love, a mysterious stranger appears, bearing a journal about Chip’s grandfather who parachuted into French Indochina at the end of World War II. As the words of the journal reveal a life that Chip never knew, he begins to understand the depth of love and sacrifice needed in order to have a second chance with Thuy.

An unexpected adventure that is part historical fiction and part contemporary love story, The Reach of the Banyan Tree explores the effects of war, love, culture, and family obligation in twentieth century Vietnam through the eyes of three generations of American men who each lost their souls in the tangled reach of the banyan tree.





The Recluse Storyteller Cover Art!

I’m happy to reveal the cover art to my second novel, The Recluse Storyteller, set to release on October 8. I’m indebted to artist Joyce Lee for her creation. The front cover image becomes a pertinent one as part of one of the stories that the storyteller continually weaves. I’m so excited to finally get this released. I’ll be posting the synopsis and prologue in the coming weeks. Thanks for your support!recluse storyteller cover med
