Currently revising "Color" to share a message that discrimination is NOT acceptable. This Special Edition is a testament to the ability of Wattpad readers to inspire.

"Color" is a story about overcoming hate against the greatest of odds.
I grew up in an itty bitty town in New Jersey. Now I live in Pennsylvania where I'm revising "Color" for an indie book launch. 😃

I've faced my share of discrimination 😩 - even in recent times. There are hints of my life experiences throughout "Color" - both positive and negative.

- All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
- Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke
- Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella

The greatest struggle I've faced - my mother falling down her basement steps and becoming partially paralyzed. She is my inspiration for writing historical fiction: To capture the past. To show despite great suffering, there is always hope. My other inspiration is my brother, Joe, with Down Syndrome.
Thank you WATTPAD for being a place --
Where Authors Tell Their Powerfully Amazing Dreams!
