I've been writing for a long, long time. My first published article appeared about 1978. During the next ten or fifteen years, I wrote more than 100 articles and chapters in more than 30 magazines and books. I published 2 curriculum books and several short stories.
In the '80s and '90s, I worked in corporate training and development for organizations like Tupperware and Universal Studios, Florida. I also wrote a customer service training book during that time, which was published by HRD Press.
I now write fiction. My first novel, 7 Sanctuaries, was released in September by Novel Voices Press. It won 2nd place in the "Readers View Historical Novel contest in 2012. My second, The 3rd Option, was released on July 1, 2013 by Belle Isle Books.
I've won various awards in contests with Writers/Editors Network, Readers' Views, the Center for Writing Excellence, Readers' Favorite Books, Critique My Novel and Writer's Type.
