I started writing with a pen and paper those many moons ago before computers, but I rarely used a pen as fine as this one. Common writing utensils consisted of stubs of pencils my kids left scattered around the house or ball-point pens with an ad for A-One Plumbing emblazoned on them. Still, I wrote, and continue to write. If we writers were in it solely for the money, most of us would be losers. I am not a loser. It’s that heart-to-heart connection we make with people who read our words that is success.

My short story collection, Beyond the Crack in the Sidewalk, now has it’s own landing page at the publisher’s website where you can read an excerpt and check it out on all the major online retail sites. The book is available in ENGLISH and SPANISH

It’s also featured, along with four other short-story collections, in a recommendation from Next Chapter Publishing. Different genres, all good reads. Check it out. Best Short Stories to read in 2022


Next Chapter is also the publisher of the revised & updated One Small Victory and the sequel One Perfect Love both featuring Jenny Jasik, one tough lady who battled drug suppliers in the first book to get drugs off the streets of her small town. Thanks to the publisher, there’s a new landing page for One Small Victory that’s incredibly easy to navigate, from reading an excerpt to checking out buying options, and reading reviews. Take a look and see what you think.


What author wouldn’t be thrilled to get this note from a reader?

“I have read thousands of books in the past and thought that your books were as good and even better than any other that I have read.”

What a terrific endorsement.

Happy readers make happy writers.
