First excerpt of revised poetry selected to appear in my new book has been posted to T.W.N. Check it out!
…The stone wall and the canon
Met them with a fearful ROAR!
They blew a kiss and whispered Love –
The canon was no more.
The stone wall raised its thorns
As they silently approached –
To them it was a gateway
And blossoming vines encroached…
Impostors are these archons?
I have no doubt they know
The purest generation,
That their hearts as white as snow.

For anyone looking to find a professional with good credentials to submit your work to – regardless of genre – I highly recommend using the resources of the A.A.R. or another such organization that verifies legitimacy and ethics. It means nothing if an agent themselves is also a writer or has successfully placed a lot of other authors with good publishers. These days, there are a number of people in the industry who take advantage of first-time writers. Agents who are honest and serious about their profession take the time to gain and maintain membership in A.A.R. This…

Update on poetry book! More news still to come.
As visitors and followers of my author site are aware, I’ve begun removing some content and making several updates to pages and posts. I’m happy to say that I have collected all the poems I have written to date, and the revisions are progressing very well. Several pieces that have been deleted from this site have been re-written and expanded. I will continue to share updates but am not posting excerpts quite yet.
Working on the poetry is a nice change of pace from the cozy mystery. And yes, an update on that is forth-coming, as well.
I am happy to report that the new edit of my first book is nearly complete! For those who don't know, it is a cozy mystery that's been in creation for some time. I'm currently working on the final chapter and very excited about starting the submission process again. On the side, I... Continue Reading →
