Immersion was first published in 1972 by Shameless Hussy Press, and according to the summary on amazon.com it is: “a ground -breaking novel, cinematic, poetic, and hallucinatory which tells the story of a young woman named Kirsten who rebels against traditional female roles and wages a desperate struggle for intellectual, spiritual, personal, and sexual liberation in the jungles of Costa Rica.”

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a great first quarter of 2013. I’m writing after all this time to share the latest twist in my life as a horror author.

ON TENTERHOOKS was my first novel and that means that writing for me occupies that nebulous space between engaging … Read more
Hi all! I’m sorry for being away and not posting anything of consequence. Life has happened to me in a number of interesting ways.
I started my own business, began working with a client, and something even more strange occurred shortly thereafter. I got an offer from a surprising source.
On September 15th of 2011, I epublished my first book “Blood-soaked and Contagious” (OMG it’s been a year!) Shortly after my insanity with Amazon’s KDP, someone who read my book tracked me down and sent me the most marvelously geeky fan letter. We tossed a few emails back … Read more
I have been distracted with life but i’m back with an excellent interview I took with a fantastic writer, Walter Shuler.
Walter is the US author of the God Wars series, and several other works including a collection of short stories. He’s also a totally awesome bloke.

Stay tuned as I have another exciting author interview coming up in the next few days.
1. What first interested you in writing, and when … Read more
