My books are available at most online retail sites as e-books and in hardcover or paperback. The paperbacks are also available via the Texas Association of Authors website, where some of the proceeds go to this non-profit organization.

Here is a link to my Amazon Author Page — Here is a link to all the books on Draft2Digital where they are available for a variety of electronic devices.

There’s something for every reading taste from mystery, to romance, to young adult,  short stories, and nonfiction.


As a special gift for my family, friends, and devoted readers this past Holiday Season, I offered a new short story – “The Gift” – free for Kindle from December 22nd through the 26th. The way this story came to me and the idea to then “gift” it, was a special time for me, and I am so pleased that so many people were able to get the story at this busy time of the year.The Gift cover optimized 400 wide

The book is still free for those who subscribe to Kindle Unlimited. The story has received several nice reviews, and one reviewer called it “A sweet short story.” Here is a link to The Gift at Amazon.


The first chapter of my work-in-progress, Evelyn Evolving, was entered in a first chapter contest for unpublished books, and it was chosen as a finalist. There were a lot of entries from all over the world, so I was very honored to be included among such a prestigious list of authors. You can read the first chapter now at Venture Galleries.

JD Core invited me to submit a story for his new Mystery & Thrillers Podcast, and I sent him “Escaping Raul”, an adaptation of the prologue of Stalking Season. JD did a wonderful job with the dramatic reading, and the podcast is free. CLICK HERE if you would like to take a listen.
