Who’s Who of Emerging Writers: 2020

I’m excited to announce that I have been included in the Who’s Who of Emerging Writers: 2020 to be released by Sweetycat Press the first of May this year.

A short video describing this volume can be viewed on YouTube.

This compendium of emerging writers will be available on Amazon in both print and Kindle editions.

That my work was judged worthy of inclusion is an honor, and I would like to sincerely thank the selection committee and the editor, Steve Carr.

Love Unexpected

I’m very pleased to announce the publication of my short story entitled “Love Unexpected” in this latest volume from Clarendon House.

This was quite a departure from my usual writing, but I’m happy to say that I quite enjoyed it and I hope you will, too.

This anthology is also available in the Kindle edition through Amazon.

White Justice

I’m excited to announce the publication of “White Justice,” my latest short story in the new anthology from Clarendon House.

This volume is also available in Kindle format from Amazon.

This is one of those stories that begged to be written. And I was excited to be the one to do it. I hope those who purchase and read this volume of short stories will enjoy it every bit as much as I did writing it.


I’m so happy to announce the publication – in print – of my short story, “Islands,” in the new anthology from Clarendon House entitled Maelstrom. This anthology is available here: Clarendon House and at Amazon in the Kindle edition.

This story is, I feel, one of my very best. It hit a chord within me and I hope you will also find it worthy of your time and attention.

Special Announcement!

I have received a contract for my speculative-future thriller, LEGACY 627!

This is very early stages. However, this work has been several years in the creating. I started work on it in Santa Rosa, California – a place that serves as the background setting for part of the story. I finished it up after moving to Oregon and after many, many careful edits.

This was a difficult concept for me to bring to fruition in a first novel as the story takes place both in the present and in the past. The difficulty was that the “present” and the “past” are both set in our own future. I think I handled it well. At least I hope I did.

As I said, this is very early stages. The contract has only just been signed, but I feel comfortable with, and excited to make, this announcement.

I want to thank the editor at Black Opal Books for seeing something of value in this manuscript. I received his letter of acceptance on August 9, 2019 –Book Lovers Day! How appropriate is that?

Black Opal Books is a small publisher but is just right for me for several reasons – not the least of which is that it is recognized by both the Mystery Writers of America and the International Thriller Writers Organization. They are also quite fond of the Oxford comma, which gets them a big thumbs-up from me.

Stay tuned for future announcements and updates on this forthcoming novel, LEGACY 627!
