Perfection and Other Illusive Things

A young adult contemporary with a touch of magical realism.


I play with words and subsist mostly on coffee, rain, and trees. Also, lemon drops.

Where I talk of plot and indie publishing.

Bookstore appearances, along with school and library visits are also available.
