Finally. Done. At last. Masked is out in Kindle, paperback and hard cover now. This one was more a labor of love than the first two in the series and I dragged my feet here and there during the process for health reasons and grief. Every book is personal but this one was close to … Continue reading Masked – Released
This was a true group effort. The whole book was, actually. Having cancer now it was hard to finish what I've been working on for so long. I get that fatigue, I get that chemo-brain which makes it hard to focus sometimes. Fortunately I have an amazing team of talented friends and colleagues to help … Continue reading Cover Art – Final
It used to be a big thing to have a profession. To work at the same company for thirty years and retire from there and get a gold watch or something. "What do you do?" "I'm an architect." "I'm an accountant." "I'm a secretary." People in the town where I grew up in Fairfield County, … Continue reading What Do You Do?
I swear I am distracted by so many squirrels. I am nearing completion of Cast Down; Masked. Nearing. I had lunch today with the brilliant Book Doctor, Ms. Elizabeth Capalbo. She bailed me out when I was nearing completion of A New England Haunting and has graciously offered to make time to help me hammer … Continue reading Seven More Wicked
I am finally feeling good enough (on my good days!) to do a little writing and thought I would share a tiny bit of MASKED, which I am working hard to finish now. It's the third book in the Cast Down series. Carrie froze in the foyer and without turning around requested, “I’d like to … Continue reading Masked – a brief tease

That became one of my favorite lines, ever. And it's TRUE! Trust me, if I'm watching TV, or driving somewhere, or even having a conversation with … Continue reading So Creepy!!!
For the last year or so I've been focused mainly on the Cast Down series I'm working on. It's a paranormal series; ghosts and demons and hauntings and such. I love horror movies. Love scary stories, always have. But it's not the only thing I've written. My other child is a detective series. There are … Continue reading And More Books…

A Note from the Author Masked the third novel novels in the Cast Down series. The first; A New England Haunting was released in … Continue reading Masked – Dedication
The third novel in the Cast Down series qualifies as a "Prequel" since it takes place before A New England Haunting. The story focuses on the character of Carrie, who we already met in New England Haunting. It's the story of her life, seeing spirits since she was a child, growing up in the paranormal … Continue reading Cast Down; Masked (teaser)
The Deconstructing of Tracy has begun. I found the perfect piece of artwork for the cover in a folder of my own childhood artwork. Yeah, I drew that. The sad part is that if I drew it today it'd look pretty much the same. I am woefully untalented. The book is a darkly humorous look … Continue reading Cover Art – Deconstructing Tracy
