Author has written 64 stories for Romance, Love, Song, Life, Family, Fantasy, General, and Haiku.

"There are two ways to light up a person's life, to be the candle that illuminates it, or the mirror that reflects it,"

As of February 2020: I started writing again. Although this time it was joy that invited the muse. It seemed to have changed the feel of my pieces. Or maybe I'm just rusty. All the same please be kind.

I'm still the romantic cynic. I like ironic and paradoxical pieces. I love surprise endings. Above all, I like pieces that haunt you even after reading it.

Please read and review my pieces. I would return the favor. I try to review multiple pieces per writer for fun. I only give honest but gentle reviews. Let's improve together yes?

Right now (from my roster) my favorite piece is "I Will Paint the Sky".

"Kiss Me While I Sleep" and "Finding Nowhere" are close seconds.

"Sea Warrior" and "Thirst" my favorite haikus.

Please tell me what you think.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
