To Leave a Memory

A Warm Coming Together

Tears of sorrow, tears of joy—To Leave a Memory takes you on a journey to joyous redemption with a man who made a mistake and had to atone, not only to his psychic Unitarian wife, tech-guru daughter, precocious grandchildren, and supportive lifelong friends, but also to himself. You'll fall in love with the Ward family for sure.

"A warm portrait of a family coming together to forgive..."—Kirkus Reviews

Out and In:

A Mystery-Thriller

"Out and In hits the ground at a full gallop, brimming with murder, gossip, entitled characters, and more than enough drama to go around..."—The Clueless Gent


In this emotionally charged mystery, a lovely quarterback’s widow and her crack legal team battle a psycho murderer, a meddling maven, and a corrupt offshore banker. A good dose of romance and a shocker ending make this an enjoyable pageturner.

Backstory: Behind the Scenes of a Famous Film-Thriller

FADE IN: to the edgy, funny, and scary world of Backstory—a single mom’s quest for love and Hollywood fame. But wait: A serial killer is stalking her and her daughter. You'll worry and cheer for this mid-life film school grad, who moves to Texas after a tragic divorce. And, you’ll be amazed by the off-beat characters she meets!

Telling part of the story with the script format was a very interesting concept ... entertaining all the way around.—”
