I’m a writer. I’ve published four mystery novels—including one that made the New York Times ebook bestseller list—one young adult novel, and a thriller. I’ve also written a published several short stories, some of which I’ve compiled into an anthology.
I’m also a screenwriter with aspirations to make a film of some sort. I have lots of ideas for short films and documentaries. I just need to take the steps to make that happen.
I also blog. A lot!
Why Read This Blog?
In 2004, I had a stroke that changed my life forever. As a result, I ended up developing dystonia. It’s a very annoying and uncomfortable chronic condition that I’ve had to learn to live with.
One of the hardest things to deal with as an indie author, screenwriter, and blogger with dystonia is finding the time and energy to stay focused and do the work.
What I hope to do is offer advice on ways to adapt to situations like chronic illness. I also hope to provide book recommendations and tell you about trips I’ve taken, since I think travel can not only open your mind, but can be therapeutic in its own way.
I’m married and living in Columbia, MD. Here’s a photo of our three cats. (Two of whom are no longer with us.)
Dystonia is a movement disorder. You can read more about that here. If you have dystonia or know someone who does, I hope you’ll find this blog helpful. I also hope to write a book about the story of my life after developing dystonia. Along with so many other books and so on.
I also consider myself to be the World’s Cheapest Indie Author. And quite possibly the Least Likely to Post Things on Facebook, because I hate Facebook. But I’m there. Meh.
