About this author


My novel, "Time-Crossed Lovers," has been selected as an Award Winning Finalist in the 'Fiction: Science Fiction' category of the 2013 International Book Awards.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

I’M EASY PREY

In terms of entertainment, a hardcover book is a great investment. A reader will usually spend three or four nights with it, and even if he or she has paid list price, that’s much cheaper than three nights at the movies or a concert or

MEMOIR OR MYSTERY?

A good book envelopes you with its world and leaves you wanting more. When that same book leaves you with more questions than answers—much like bomb craters in the An Hoa Basin—you wonder how it really went down.

“It is useful to be reminded that in even the most distressed black neighborhoods, the majority of residents are “decent folk” who live by the rules and strive to lead respectable lives (Anderson 2000), yet crime and the fear of it weakens conventional social capital in these communities. Strong role models may be in short supply, the institutional infrastructure is weak, and, of most immediate relevance, bridges to good job opportunities in the wider world are in short supply.”
Karl Alexander, The Long Shadow: Family Background, Disadvantaged Urban Youth, and the Transition to Adulthood

“For example, parent support could be most important in the early grades, when children's academic self-image is just beginning to coalesce, but over time, as children become more self-directive, the immediate influence of parent support might wane.”
Karl Alexander, The Long Shadow: Family Background, Disadvantaged Urban Youth, and the Transition to Adulthood

“Middle-class parents are more verbal generally, their vocabulary is richer and more expressive, and they are more supportive and less controlling in conversation with their children (see Hart and Risley 1995).”
Karl Alexander, The Long Shadow: Family Background, Disadvantaged Urban Youth, and the Transition to Adulthood
