A Short Note From Me

Hi! Thanks so much for checking out my site. I’m currently happily immersed in the pages of my next two or three books, so please be patient with my new site.

I’ll get all the pages set up properly over the next few months. As far as my books, Rock Gods & Messy Monsters is out now at all your favorite online retailers.

The second book in the Mind Monsters Series, Fallen Spirits, will be out in 2024. I was originally publishing it in the first half of 2024, but, well, there’s a cliff hanger at the end, and I don’t want upset readers, so I’m trying to get book 3 (which might be 2 books) in at least final edits before publishing Fallen Spirits.

Bottom line – The Fallen Spirits manuscript is done, and the book will be out this year! Sign up for my newsletter if you’d like to stay up to date with progress, publications dates, and much more.

Oh, and if you know me from the healthy food space, you can find out what I’m doing in the department on my Whole Healthy Group website. Thanks!

There will be more exciting things here shortly…..

An even more scintillating thoughts will be here also! Stay tuned!
