Author Update

In giving my books a renewed lease on life (after my publisher abruptly went out of business last year) I will be independently re-releasing my first two novels, Broken Land, a Brooklyn Tale and Raking the Dust, through Amazon in the next week or so. Cover artwork for both created by Cris Qualiana Basham.
I continue to actively seek a new publisher for my latest novel, Nocturne Variations, with hopes of finding a warm and loving home for this beautiful mutant-orphan whom I regard with paternal fondness.
Once Upon a Time: Stories From Around the World, featuring my adaptations of classic children’s fables, paired with artwork, will be published by Eclectic Press, and is due out this Spring.
I am also excited to be collaborating with Cris Qualiana Basham on a children’s book titled The Jackdaw and the Doll, based on a story about Franz Kafka.
“My life has been in a sense the quintessence of what I have written, not the other way around. The way I am and the way I write are a unity. All my ideas and all my endeavors are myself.” Carl Jung
