Then I wrote a few children's stories about a talking elephant named Captain Packy. But I didn't know what to do with them, so the manuscripts sat in a white bankers box in my office. A relative moved in with me and used my office as a bedroom, so the box of Captain Packy stories went to the basement. The basement flooded. The box was soaked. Back then, there were no digital back-ups. The visual image of that box floating in the basement stuck with me. I vowed the next time I would DO something with them. Many years later I started to write down a few scenes for a book for grown-ups. After I had a few substantial scenes, I began to weave them into a story. Soon I had a full length novel written. I began the query letter process to the big publishers and was surprised how long it took to get an "I loved it but..." letter back in the mail. Six to eight weeks for comments like too long, too clean, or too convoluted. So in 2011 I decided to do it myself through Kindle Direct Publishing. I have never regretted the decision.(less)

Nighttime. After everybody is in their designated spot for the night, and we're all locked up tight, The last load is out of the dryer and the dishwasher is humming away,I like to sit at my desk and write down whatever pops into my head. Sometimes I am half-asleep. Sometimes it is incoherent babble. And sometimes it's wonderful.(less)
