New Book

I'm taking a momentary detour. Chimera's sequel will be put on indefinite hold while I work on a new project.

The new idea came up a few weeks ago while reading a case about an unconstitutional city ordinance. The idea immediately struck, although it was basic and rough. Since then I've had it on the back of mind to see if it would pass over or if this was really an idea that was going to stick. Well, it stuck.

Yesterday I spent the day hammering out the idea and seeing what kind of overall storyline could be created from it. So far, I'm actually really satisfied with the idea at hand. More details will eventually come from the storyboarding, and I have a few details left to work out, but I believe this will be a good book.

The genre will be suspense and the target audience will be the adults this time. Stay tuned. . . .

Chimera in Print

After more headaches and long hours of formatting and reviewing proofs, Chimera is now in paperback at Amazon. Also noteworthy is that the electronic version is now available for purchase at Barnes and Noble, itunes, and soon will be on Sony's reader store. I've provided all the links below.

My story-boarding for the second installment has been put on hold unfortunately because of school. But I can assure you that if you enjoyed Chimera, you will LOVE what is in store for Ky. The story-boarding I have done will not only 'thicken the plot,' as the cliche' goes, but promises to completely astound the reader. As soon as I can catch a break from school long enough to finish the story's layout, I will start punching the keys--I promise to make that as soon as possible.

Keep you posted.

Chimera's Available!

Hey everyone! After more than a year of working on this thing, tripping in the dark, and bangin' my head against the wall (and my desk in the library), I've finally published Chimera! I owe a huge thanks to everyone who made the book happen––they are all referenced in the Author's Note at the back of the book.

Chimera is now available at and, and will soon be available on, itunes, and other major online retailers. I'll keep you updated on those developments as they happen.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did in writing it.
