About

I have always been a writer. I wrote stories in grade, high school, and college. Professionally, I wrote instructional manuals for various software products I designed. I include writing software toward my writing portfolio, but in a far different gender and language(s). I enjoy imagining different people, their lives and their worlds. Out of fear of rejection, only recently have I shared my fiction writing. With the assistance and support of my writing group I took the chance and here we are.

The Star Alliance

I am pleased and proud to announce The Star Alliance is currently available at Amazon and on Kindle. If you are a Kindle Unlimited Subscriber you can read if for free.

Here is the back cover with a short excerpt from the story:

The Star Alliance is a political thriller pitting good against evil. The book originated from a short story, then a sequel to the short story, then the decision to expand the stories into a short novel. Three of the original short stories are found  on this website under Short-Short Stories.

Road Trip! – Travels with Rosie

Last July (2018) Fran and I drove from Sacramento to Vermont visiting National Parks and other points of interest, as well as special friends and family along the way. I blogged our travels every day, and upon returning home edited the posts to create the book, Road Trip! We imagined what the conversations would be had Rosie, our Havanese mix actually travelled with us.

While primarily published for my family and friends we visited on the trip, you can read our not so adventurous adventures on Ghoststhatsellmemories.com. It’s also available on Amazon.com, although it is to expensive due to all the color photographs. There must be some trick that I do not know, or some skill that I do not possess to format books for Kindle properly. The photos do not align properly, the pagination sucks and overall look very amateurish. Sorry. They hardcopy version looks great. I am amazed how well the color photos reproduced.  (Although, expensive!)

Short-Short Stories

In October 2017, with the Passages To Ruth put to bed, I used a prompt from my writer’s group, “Summertime, and the living is…” I chose to write the story behind the wonderful song by George Gershwin.  – Read More ->

Passages To Ruth.

I started writing “Passages to Ruth” between jobs in the early 2000’s. Once I retired in 2016 I turned more attention to finishing “Ruth” by completing a couple of stories that stalled mid-write and adding one more (Nashon.)

Long, long ago, in a world lost in the misty past, I wondered about everything. Why is the sky blue?  Why didn’t people on the other side of the earth fall off the earth and up into space?  What if some of the stories we read, or were read to us, didn’t happen exactly the way they were presented?

As George Gershwin so aptly penned:

The t’ings dat yo’ li’ble

To read in de Bible,

It ain’t necessarily so.

Herein are biblical matriarchs and patriarchs without their baggage, (think carry-on only.)  Meet other ancestors who, overlooked as minor characters, waiting patiently in the wings for their day on the stage. Read More ->
