It is better to live to write than to write to live.
"The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say."
Words of wisdom by Anais Nin . I believe in storytelling. I am a storyteller. There can be no more satisfying career than to be able to entrance and captivate by the use of words. It is not necessary to painfully sculpt Great Literature. Simplicity is the key to storytelling. I believe that. I hope you enjoy my books. The other material on this site is here to entertain you, shock you, make you think, but most of all it is here to stimulate you. Thank you for coming to my page. As a full time professional author I too need to make a living. I do not 'protect' my work with anti-copying software, nor do I condemn those who have no money to pay for the joy of a good book. But I would ask you to consider this. If writers cannot live on the proceeds of their work, there will be no writers. If you read my books for free, please consider a small donation too. If every reader of every book donated just one dollar to that author, YOU will be the better off. Thank you for coming. Please enjoy.
