Instead of becoming a rock star or Army general, I'm an elementary school teacher. This school year, for the first time in decades, I will not have a class. I will coordinate curriculum. Wish me luck!

I've always loved stories. And writing.


QUIET - A slowburn YA thriller with a touch of romance and the paranormal. Makiko Lombardi, the 16 year-old daughter of a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer, has to manipulate a demon who likes her in order to escape Yakuza determined to kidnap her.

UNFINISHED (Updates on hold. Sorry!):

LOUD - A slowburn suspense without a touch of the paranormal. Robert Pirone, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer, moves to Tokyo to win over his estranged teenage daughter, Makiko, and accidentally turns her into a target.

日本語 で簡単にできる。練習しようかな。でも多分難しすぎると思おう。頭が石から。

If you follow/unfollow, please don't bother. I'll notice and set you completely free.

If you don't follow back, well, I probably won't stick around. If you're not interested in my writing journey, I'm not interested in yours. But namaste, big fellah, namaste!
