Hello! I'm so glad you're visiting my website. It's still a work in progress, so if you have suggestions or questions or need any further information, I do hope you'll contact me by clicking "e-mail" in the yellow Quick Links box, or by clicking here.

My latest novel, Ruby Electric, is now available in paperback (Aladdin, Simon & Schuster), and both Devil Storm and The 25 Cent Miracle are available again as Backinprint.com editions from iUniverse.com. You can find new and used copies of these and all my other books through Booksense.com, Amazon.com, and Barnesandnoble.com, as well as other on-line bookstores.

To learn more about the stories and see pictures of some of the people and places that inspired them, just click on individual titles (either the book jackets in the left-hand column or the highlighted titles in the yellow column on the right).

I love getting to know my readers, and I look forward to hearing from you.
