I like to work in different genres,including literary and mainstream fiction and general nonfiction for adults and historical fiction and nonfiction for juvenile/young adults. I also enjoy teaching seminars on writing and have done so in Florida and New Jersey. I also write screenplays and have taught seminars on the intricacies of that special format. I also do editing on a selective basis, fiction and nonfiction. And I'm now on Facebook and my print novel of social commentary titled SEARCHING was made available as a Kindle e-book as of May, 2010. Since then I have listed 14 novels, nine novellas, three self-help titles and four juvenile novels and two short story collections on my Kindle e-book reader bookshelf as of March, 2013. I also enjoyed seeing a short story titled A Time to Live included in a recent anthology titled When Last on the Mountain for writers over fifty as well as having a memoir piece published in the anthology Impact 2012.
