Thank you for your interest in my writing.

This is my "sharing" space where you'll find extra scenes, short stories, and sneak peeks of what's coming next.  

If you ask 100 writers how they write, you'll get 150 answers. Personally, I like to sketch scenes in different forms. Sometimes I'll write little plays or journal as one of my characters.

She catches bits of Philadelphia through the arches in the concourse. The skyline flat and low, dimensionless against the late fall sky. Adelaine—Addie to family and teammates, stops to salute the stars and stripes flying in left field, then rounds the concourse behind the centerfield stands...
