That first night I read my work and bless her, she gave me the encouragement I needed. After some time I thought I'd try my hand at contemporary prose, and bravely used the f-word, Maureen gasped at my change of genre, then urged me on with a twinkle in her eye.
Writing opened up a new world for me, and after writing numerous short stories, I used a favorite I'd created with characters Lindy Lewis and Reed Conners and bravely kept on going. Using bits and pieces of my life, people I'd met, places I'd been and of course embellishing, I wrote my first book. I called it Nightmares and Dreams. That was more than ten years ago. In the process
of maturing as a writer
I'm happy to say it still gets me up and moving most mornings as I am finishing my fourth book about the star crossed lovers.
Each day of writing is an adventure as my characters make me smile with their antics and cry when their troubles abound.
So here it is, after years in the back of the closet I hope you enjoy my book as Lindy and Reed began their tumultuous journey.
I eagerly look forward to hearing what you, my readers think about this first book. Please e-mail me
