Having been a police officer and having had the opportunity to work in an urban community where everything was unpredictable inspired me to write children's books with a touch of harsh reality. I hope my books will promote logical thinking at a critical period in some child’s mind.

Background Information

As a youth, I was always sort of a bookworm and an illustrator. If I wasn’t reading or writing something, I was sketching; therefore becoming an author came naturally. 


I attended Philadelphia Community College and Temple University in Pennsylvania. Due to my indecisiveness,I spent my first two years in an undecided status, studing Real Estate and Social Psychology, but my last two years were concentrated in a Special Education program. However, things don't always turn out the way one plans them. Most of my work history has been in law enforcement and real estate sales, but I have always enjoyed writing. When I was in college, I used to write short articles for the school’s paper.

Additional Information

MY FIRST CHILDREN'S NOVEL, “A CHILD’S INTUITION” is about a little girl who listens to her intuition and takes immediate action to protect herself when she suspects she's being stalked by a dangerous pedophile. HERE'S THE SYNOPSIS FOR “A CHILD’S INTUITION” In bone chilling temperatures, and on ice slick roads, a nine year old girl is stalked by a derange pedophile as she walks to school. She manages to outwit the child predator when she sees his pickup truck circling the block. She hides behind some snow filled hedges. After the incident, Jacque vows never to be late for school again. She makes it her mission to always walk to and from school with her friends. Because of Jacque’s experience with the child predator, she has nightmares. Her mother takes her to see a child psychologist, but the little girl still believes the pedophile is stalking her. Jacque tells everyone that she frequently sees her stalker's pickup truck parked on the road near her house, but no one takes her seriously. Since she vows not to be late for school again, she refuses to walk her dog on the days that she is running late for school. The commitment she makes to herself creates a wedge between her and her thirteen year old brother, Shawn. The children’s parents are seldom home; therefore, they are basically latch key children. The children have a lot of responsibility, but caring for their French Poodle is the prime reason for their arguments. When the little girl refuses to walk the French Poodle in the morning, the dog has accidents in the house. The frequency of this pattern provokes the boy to argue with his sister. The boy knows what to say to hurt his sister’s feelings. He teases her about her ability to rationalize what is real and what is not. He tells her that she is too paranoid to go outside, and he accuses her of fabricating tales to receive special treatment. After the pedophile poisons the children's dog, the dog returns from the spirit world. He returns with the ability to communicate in English. The French Poodle assists Jacque and her brother, Shawn and a diverse group of children in their mission to bring a dangerous pedophile to justice. If you would like to read the first chapter of "A CHILD'S INTUITION," go to the top of the page, look in the upper left corner, and click on books by author. I hope you and your family enjoy reading my children’s books as much as I enjoy writing them. Thanks for stopping by.
