Writer, fueled by coffee

Another year around the sun


I’ve had a lovely day that began with no lines at the DMV when I went to renew my license and included cupcakes from my sister, so many wishes from friends near and far, and cards from the kids.

In the interest of trying new things, and in preparation for an audio book that I hope to record and release later this year, here is a video of my reading from chapter 1. I hope that you enjoy it.

You can buy The Silence of Trees on and signed copies through Wolfsword Press.

If you have a kindle, The Silence of Trees is only $.99 for the month of February here!

Thank you!
