Happy New Year, and one Last Look Back

It has been a great year for me creatively, and I thank all those who helped make it happen, and those who shared in the experience. Here’s what happened:


I won two awards for my debut novel, CITY OF WOE…


In response to reviewer requests, I published a short story collection prequel to CITY OF WOE called CITY OF SIN….


I published my first children’s book, THE FERGUSON FILES: THE MYSTERY SPOT, with art by Toney Jackson…


I did a number of appearances with these guys, Caseen Gaines and Toney Jackson, both writers worth checking out…


I acted in a an anti-drug cop thriller movie called “Clandestine” by Feenix Films….


I watched these guy go off to college…


I remained in love with this woman…


And I kept busy writing the sequel to CITY OF WOE, currently titled CITY OF PAIN.

So here’s to 2013, and let’s keep writing and working toward our dreams in 2014!

I do my best to tell fast-paced stories with humor and heart. My fiction work is available on amazon.com. Here, I’ll write about the sources for those stories from what I read, watch, listen to, and observe to my experiences as a former award-winning journalist, high school teacher, actor, and producer.
