I am a writer and aspiring to be a novelist.  I want people to get to know me and my work.

 My Blog is about:

 1.  Writing  – Because it is so much a part of my life.

 2.  Work  – because most of us have to do it and it is so much a part of our lives.  

 3.  Creativity – because it should be part of everyone’s life.

 4.  Short stories – I hope you like

 5.  Book reviews, Televsion and a bit on Love (I am after all a romantic).

 Hopefully, you will get to know me through my writing and my website, but here is a little more about me.

 I always saw writing as a hobby until  people began to give me money for it, then it became a side hustle and one day it will be a full time gig.    I have written newsletters, resumes, articles, web copy and collateral pieces – I was given money to write.   I stress the money because only after I got paid did I realize it was more than a hobby; only then could I feel comfortable calling myself a writer, after all I live in Los Angeles and this town is full of wanna-be writers, actors and directors.  

 I decided to tackle a novel because I have an over active imagination.  I decided to write, what I call – supernatural adventures with touches of romance – because, again I have an overactive imagination.

 I admire Dean Koontz and John Grisham.  

 I am flawed, so are my characters.  I want to be mature and forgiving.  I want to forgive those who have caused me hurt in my personal and corporate life, I want to turn the other cheek (and not because I’m in a fight and avoiding someone’s swing), but I can’t.

 Maybe I am not mature enough or grown up enough, or maybe I am not built that way – but  I am trying.  I am as flawed as the characters I write about and the situations I write about are not ideal – but life isn’t always ideal either.  I believe in happy endings.

 I think that is enough for now, my work should speak for itself.

 I hope you learn from, laugh along with and enjoy my site. I hope you buy my books, enjoy them and review them.  If you want to drop me a line sometime, my email is below.
