My Writing Projects
From picture books to novels and advertising copy to blog posts, I enjoy writing in various styles.
Legacy: And other things left behind
Caroline Clark, a talented and successful broadcast journalist, struggles to find balance during a tumultuous time in her life. She seeks guidance from a man she has always relied on—her grandfather. The day she sees him for the last time she contemplates the physical and moral gifts he has given to her over the years, which only causes her to question her own legacy.
As Caroline's grandfather lay dying she recalls the seemingly mundane experiences that shaped her life. Years of poor decisions driven by selfish ambition and unrealistic romantic expectations lead her on a path of disillusionment and disappointment. Currently plagued by anxiety and surrealistic nightmares, Caroline is left sleep deprived and uptight. She has changed so much from that carefree child that she assumes her grandfather remembers, the simpleminded adolescent that her mother chided and the affable woman that her husband fell in love with.
Will Caroline be able to reconcile with loved ones after so many insults and bad decisions? Can she find peace despite the consequences? This tragic day becomes a day Caroline will never forget as she struggles with love, death and the crippled relationships that she helped create.

Pauley Peacock paraded through the forest, proudly displaying his majestic feathers gleaming with emerald, gold, violet and blue. Confidently he commanded the attention of other birds and woodland creatures. All regarded him with envy, or so he thought or wanted to believe. When his splendor is overshadowed by the nightingale song and the eagle's strength, Pauley Peacok's pride is hurt. This poetic rendition of Aesop's fable "Juno and the Peacock" is told with vivid imagery and unexpected surprises.
Initially a covert government organization, DOGMOB, the Department of Genetically Modified Organic Beings, was given control over Pagan Island north of Guam. They were to establish a controlled, secure and private area to conduct Genetically Altered Mythical Experiments. After a decade of research and experimentation, government scientists were able to create an assortment of creatures using human and animal DNA once thought of as mythical. They called these creatures "GAME."
When violent earthquakes compromised the integrity of the compound, an Aussi-American bounty hunter and a Paleoanthropologist were called in to team up with a Genetic Biologist to retrieve a missing experiment- a mermaid. Having escaped the confines of her enclosure, this mermaid along with other GAME, lead the DOGMOB team on a chase toward catastrophic consequences. Their escape threatened to expose the government's top secret experiments and lead the planet on a path of destruction. While DOGMOB attempts to secure support and convince the public they have everything under control, the GAME are free to pursue their own agenda.
