About me

I'm the author of A is for Angelica, a novel about a man who makes terrible decisions in unthinkable circumstances. It was published in 2012 by Legend Press and it is available in paperback and audiobook.

Since then, I have written zero books and had four children, which tells its own story. I am currently working on novel two and a collection of short fiction. All good things come from patience and persistence.
