I love stories.

I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.

And I write them.

I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.

I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.

In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.

My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)

Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.


Tea Bag Anyone?

The tea bag is rooted in the belief that the leaves ought to removed from the hot water at the end of a specific brewing period.

At first, there were infusers — perforated metal containers which were filled with loose leaves and immersed in boiling water, and then removed using an attached chain.

They are still around, though not nearly as popular as tea bags, that are an American invention. Though not an intentional one.

A New York tea merchant, sent samples of tea to his customers in small silken bags and some of them assumed they were to be used in the same way as the metal infusers. So they dunked the entire bag into the teacup and – presto – the tea bag was born.

Of course, it was refined until it became the tea bag of today, complete with gauze-like material, a string to hang over the side of the cup, and a tag on the end with a logo on it.
