I grew up in Raleigh, NC and am one of five children. We were all raised to be free thinkers and we are all creative in some form or fashion. I am a reader, but not a voracious reader like some folks. Typically, I read about six books a year and the bulk of those are in the summertime on the beach, or relaxing in a hammock. Once football and basketball seasons start then my focus is on those sports...mostly college and especially my North Carolina Tar Heels.

I married late, at 42, and now have two beautiful little girls who I adore. My wife and I both work, so when we are not working it is family time all the time. It's so fun now that my oldest daughter is beginning to read. She tucks away in a corner of her room in a pile of pillows and me

That life story stayed with me for many years and I thought it would be a good starting point for a book. Fate Ball is fiction, but with many books there are some seeds of truth.(less)

My debut novel, Fate Ball, has been adapted into a screenplay. A producer/director is interested in buying the book and movie rights, so we are moving in that direction.

If all goes well Fate Ball should be on the silver screen by summer 2019. Very exciting times!

If you have not read Fate Ball yet, then grab a copy...ebook, paperback and hardcover available.

Thanks,

“Outside of a French accent and maybe Italian, Able thought the sexiest accent had to be a soft, sophisticated Southern belle accent.”
