Instead of becoming a rock star or Army general, I'm an elementary school teacher.

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.


LOUD - A slowburn suspense without any 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!

Maybe QUIET should stay at 666 stars forever, given the number's association with the devil and therefore demons, but don't let that stop you from reading and starring chapters please!
