Dear Readers:

Luigi Pirandello wrote,
“Six Characters in Search of an Author.”

I’m not so very different from
Pirandello because
I have written
six novels in search of a publisher.

As soon as I find one,
you’ll be the first to know.
I can hardly wait to share my stories with you.

 

And my characters

are itching

to let you in on

their worlds, their secrets,

their pain and their pleasures.

 

In the meantime,

I hope you enjoy

Over Coffee
