I am a recent author, whose book Shadows of Souls is now available through Amazon. It contains ghosts, murder, love, religious extremism and hatred -- all the things that make life worthwhile.
I am particularly suited to writing horror - I am a public high school teacher.
One thing that interests people the most about me is my love of language. I currently speak English, Spanish, Ladino, Hebrew, Italian, German and Chinese. I speak French when I really have to, and can read Old English, the language of Beowulf.
My writing is a composite of the dark places of my soul and the various factoids I have picked up over my extremely long lifetime. As an urban high school English teacher, I hear frequent exclamations from my students about the extent of my completely useless hordes of knowledge.
Of course, The Bard, Chaucer, Bram Stoker, Stephen King and Peter Straub have influenced me.
Read my book, and tell me what you think. I'd love to hear from you...unless you don't like it.
My novel Shadows of Souls is now available on Amazon and Books.com. Pick up a copy and enjoy.
