“…now that we have seen each other," said the Unicorn, "if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you…”

-         Lewis Carroll




There are times when I think fiction is the only way of telling the truth. It protects the innocent, not to mention the writer. 


I have completed several novels and a novella. Short selections of some of them can be accessed with the links below. 


Tango: We Are Not Forever tells the story of a man and two women in the glittering world of tango where sometimes the glitter is tears. 


70 Percent Off: Money tells the story of a woman under the thumb of money.


Audrey: A Book of Love tells the story of young poet who falls in love with an older woman and a young man simultaneously. This novel was published by ELJ Publications in 2015.


Soleil Madera is a fairytale with a feminist slant about a movie star’s fight for her own identity. 


Gold and Poison is a novella about the obscure Nordic goddess Sigyn, married to the far better known trickster god Loki. 


Sometimes I work on short stories. My favorite character appearing in my short fiction for some time was a gently bewildered unicorn. The Hunter and the Unicorn was the first of this series of stories. It won 6th place in the 2003 New Century Writers short fiction contest.
