I am a great lover of the art of procrastination. I have almost perfected it to a science.

Seriously, I do set goals. When I get inspired I can write 2000 words a day. Other times no matter how long I stare at the page nothing seems to come. On those days I read. I may pick up something totally unrelated to the genre I am working on, or sometimes it could be tangentially related. I look for style and voice in particular. How a writer interacts with the audience through the book. (less)

The story revolves around a simple bed and breakfast on the coast of North Carolina in the town of Topsail. The town has a bit of history. It seems that the town got its name from the privateers who used to hide their ships behind the island. The only thing visible to unsuspecting merchant ships was the topsail.

The novella can be pre-ordered through Amazon.(less)

But don’t expect all that, this is the Eros side of love not the Venus side. Wally arrives at the funeral of the father of his first love where he meets dee once again after forty years greeting her with a kiss on the forehead. Dee introduces her dear friend to her twenty something daughter, Corinne. They get to chatting and the daughter recognizes him from bits and pieces of stories her mom shared with her growing up. “Oh, my god, you’re dandelion man” she exclaims. Anxious to learn what her mother was like as a teenager, the two make plans to meet for dinner where the protagonist reminisces about his first love and provides the daughter insights into a unique facet of her mom. Dandelion Man is a fictional memoire dealing with the difficult decisions that crop up in relationships.
