Dive into a Mango Manuscript
Writing is an amazing form of self-expression and it is my hope that my work in the literary field are more than words and letters scribbled on a page, but powerful tools which to guide your journey and encrouage you to pick up the pen and start scribing a better story for your life. Thus, note that my writings are not, nor were they meant to, be mindless beach-blanket reads between summer-afternoon naps... Instead, the works to follow are intended to engage your mind & spirit, challenge you to think & act, and invigorate along with entertain!
Emancipated to Emaciated:
Story of a Skinny Mango
True, it's a little uncommon to write a memoir at age 39, but it has been a hell of a trip and, if sharing it helps put purpose to some of the pain, then write I will!
Kicking off with a forward from Coach Bill Belichick, this book balances laughter and lament as it recounts the excitement and exhaustion that define my recovery journey. Mine has been a story of success, suffering & surrender; however, my intention in putting words to MY story, is that recovery becomes OUR story.

Homos, Hobos & the Holy Hereafter
Is Homosexuality a sin? Why do bad things happen to good people? What does God look like? Sound like? Act like? Love like?
Dive deep into a slightly humorous, yet deeply provocative account of two despondent individuals -- each representative of their own metaphorical and literal closet -- as they journey alongside a non-traditional deity that some may deem GOD, on a parallel path to self, social and spiritual acceptance.
This is a rare link to a draft of my latest novel (complete with a full literary pitch for publication). Please DO NOT SHARE the link, but do email me with feedback if you find yourself courageous enough to take a plunge into a philosophical journey of faith.
