Welcome Fellow Readers and Writers,

There will be new blogs on the first Monday of each month and they will cover a variety of topics. I welcome suggestions on themes to cover, as well as responses to content. You may leave input here or contact me at

I received some very positive input regarding my last book, Our Haunted House, from both children and adults. Thank you all for emailing me, talking to me in person, or leaving reviews.

According to Jon Evans, JonEvans@techcrunch, in his blog titled, Mama, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Writers, the average American reads only 6.5 to 17 books per year. Over a seventy-year life span, that comes to between 455 and 1190 books per person. Since there are millions of books to choose from and new ones coming out all the time, I thank all of you who chose to buy mine.

I am currently working on two books. The first is a memoir which should be completed early next year. It’s working title is Caught Somewhere In-Between. The other is a book of short stories as yet untitled.

In the meantime, keep reading and writing!
