Trying to write another book to equal the success of Pink Dice, my 50s novel about that first decade of rock n roll and huge middle class that felt so secure, poodle skirts and rocket-ship inspired cars were their identifiers.

Background Information

Years ago, my highschool teacher in Junior year told me I was a natural-born writer.  I took her seriously and followed that up by taking a B.A. in English Degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1981.   I'm a regular contributing writer to Arts Across Kentucky and have been writing for various newspapers over the years including The Post and The Sunday Challenger.  In 2008, Acclaim Press published my debut novel, Pink Dice , a fictional novel inspired by my youth in the fifties.  The story has all the hallmarks of the fun and colorful fifties that was our first decade of rock-n-roll.  And it has been called a coming-of-age piece but that understates its insightful look into the underbelly of the fifties and a grander theme of man's inhumanity to man.  The publisher decided to give the cover a feminine look but those men who have seen past the cover have told me it was not  so much a chic lit as a fun and provocative read.  It has enjoyed above average sales for which I'm grateful.  Am currently working on another book which will explore the 60s and 70s.  Having lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis, Viet Nam War, the murder of three of our greatest American leaders, our country's involvement in the near and middle east  in order to keep the oil industry alive and our economy based on its multi-billion dollar successes, I lean toward the themes of greed and man's inhumanity to man.  My writing has been described as lyrical, colorful, provocative, non-formula (high praise),  infinitely descriptive and often profound. 

Birth Place
Covington, KY USA

Graduated with high honors from University of Cincinnati. Published author. Teach creative writing at Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center. Keynote speaker at fifties events.

Additional Information

Just now finishing up a 4-week creative writing course at Lawrenceburg Public Library. They are hosting a Pink Dice event for a signing of my book on Tuesday March 29 5:45-7:45 p.m. There will be 50s music, dancing and everyone is encouraged to wear their poodle skirts, rolled-up jeans, saddle oxfords and bobby socks, ponytails and ducktails and come in a vintage car if you're lucky enough to have one. A 1957 Chevy Belair graces the cover of my book so we'd love to see one of those!
