Born in Detroit Michigan and pretty much on my own from my eighteenth birthday, I graduated from Michigan State University and went to work for a large consumer packaged goods company. Since my first work experience was so interesting, I pretty much stayed close to the consumer business. After about forty-five years as a prisoner of organized commerce, I made a break for it and succeeded in escaping. During the previous ten years before my successful dash for liberty, I struggled with writing a novel and it eventually grew to over 100,000 words. I finally printed it off the computer for the purposes of editing. After about fifty pages I realized it was a piece of bad writing and it is currently earning its keep holding the laundry room door open in a breeze.
I don’t think the ten years were wasted since the time spent on the manuscript gave me the experience of what was necessary to become a serious writer. I did learn for me it was impossible to write and work full time as well. I came to the decision to give up writing until I could do it full time.
I started writing full time in 2012 and finished my first novel titled My GRL in August of that year. I did a round of queries and was picked up by Martin Sisters Publishing. The paper edition of My GRL was published in December of 2013 and the E-book edition in January 2014. My next novel is a sequel to My GRL and is temporarily titled His Revenge. The manuscript has been sent to the publisher per our contract and I am waiting on news of publication. In the meantime, I am working on the third book of in the series with the working title Our Justice and plan to have the first draft finished by the end of December. After finishing, I will be starting a whole new story in January.
