This website is devoted to my writing. I have three novels already published, and a four more that will be available soon. I write in different styles and genres and my books will likely appeal to different audiences and age brackets.
My first novel, A Boy and His Dragon, is aimed at anyone from junior high on up who enjoyed the Harry Potter books and other fantasies set within the real world. There is a dragon and there is magic (of a sort), but there's also school and parents and girls and bullies and all the other real-world problems that often plague thirteen-year-old boys.
A Matter of Time was written with older teens and adults in mind. It is a real-world-grounded story of an almost impossible loop in time that leads to undying love and unforgettable heartache. Populated with strong, likeable characters, A Matter of Time will take you on a journey you'll not easily forget. This book is a 2012 Silver Award winner in the Reader's Favorite Book Awards Competition.
My Knight Cycle Series is controversial in its themes and conclusions and depiction of modern American society. This series is geared towards older teens and adults. Those children and teenagers who society tends to reject or ignore or abuse or marginalize, who come in all shapes and sizes - black and white and brown and Asian and Pacific Islander and gang affiliated and gay and straight and those who are confused about their sexuality - are the subjects of this series. The story presents a somewhat harsh indictment of today's adult-created society that sends the message, in so many varied ways, that these kids are of no value. It is my hope that readers will embrace the storyline and understand that it's mostly apathy and a desire to let "someone else solve THAT problem" which hurts kids more than anything else.
I've completed the second through fifth books in the Knight Cycle and each one begins where the previous one ended, almost like they are long chapters of the same book, which they essentially are. Part II is called Running Through A Dark Place and is due out in May 2014. There is No Fear should follow in July, And the Children Shall Lead in September, and the finale, Once Upon A Time In America by November. This entire saga spans four years in the lives of these kids and the adults whom they impact, taking them from the streets of Los Angeles to The White House and beyond. Hopefully you'll read the entire series because it's a wild ride, one you're not likely to forget.

I have also included within the Photo Gallery some samples of my Photoshop work. For four years, I produced the yearbook at the high school where I worked, and I've become fairly proficient using Photoshop, especially for photo composites.
