I’m a writer. From childhood I kindled three dreams: to one day become a father, a writer, and a baseball player.
Two of three ain’t bad. (I shall neither confirm nor deny holding out deluded hope for the third.) Most of what I write is fiction, but not all. I write the occasional article and guest post, and conduct some interviews. I’m an English major, have a masters in social work, and have been an early childhood leader/advocate for many years. I’m sports-obsessed, love animals, and love to share the veritable treasure trove of pithy comments from my kiddos, particularly my little girl, about whom I receive regular requests for more “Rachelisms.”
COMING SPRING/SUMMER 2022: David Rose and the Forbidden Tournament, the second book in the “David Rose” series of YA Fantasy adventures.
It’s one thing to discover a whole new world, but quite another to survive it. David Rose discovers that, on top of everything else, immortality can kill you.
It’s been less than a year since his fateful 15th birthday, but for David Rose, everything has changed. He’s learned of his immortality, discovered a sinister plot centuries in the making, and survived an attempt on his life at a medieval castle in England. Through it all, he’s more convinced than ever that his mother is alive.
David has been awakened to a wondrous new world, yet one fraught with peril. His awakening has served as a beacon to other immortals, some of whom view him as a threat to be dispatched. Just as he’s learning how to channel the greatest powers of his past lives, he’s abducted by a rogue syndicate bent on exploiting immortals and pitting them against each other in battles to the death.
COMING SUMMER/FALL 2022: Gospel, a literary fiction with tinges of Magical Realism.

More details coming soon…
COMING SPRING/SUMMER 2023: David Rose and the Days of Awe, the third book in the “David Rose” series of YA Fantasy adventures.
Marcel has returned from a mysterious excursion with possible news of David Rose’s mother, in addition to a revelation which threatens to upend the course of human history.
Not even a year from discovering his immortality and the sinister world into which he has awakened, David has survived a swordfight, eluded a dark wizard, and pulled off a harrowing escape after being abducted to a hidden compound and forced to compete in a forbidden tournament of immortals.
What matters to him above all else is protecting his little sister, rescuing their mother, and reuniting their family once and for all. But now, their enemies have obtained a weapon of ancient and unspeakable power.
Once again, David’s in a race against time in this world that time forgot. He must find his mother before it’s too late—not just to save her, but also himself and, just maybe, the entire world.
