And a new book was born unto!


After a catastrophic railway accident leaves a trail of carnage and devastation in its wake, the small train station in Rain, Germany is shuttered. Six months later, Gary and Grace Wolf, returning home after their belated honeymoon, find themselves trapped inside the now defunct terminal. What they discover within its walls leads them to make harrowing decisions. What they learn about each other pushes them to the brink of disaster.

Back in Bloomington, Illinois, their best friends, Mike and Sarah Waverly, await their return. A few hours before the plane is scheduled to land, Mike becomes tormented by troubling premonitions concerning Gary and Grace. Driven to find out the truth, Mike finds himself battling mysterious and inexplicable obstacles that plunge him into his own personal hell.

Everyone’s fate hangs in a precarious balance as the clock runs out.

And...we are live!

May 2017

Two years, people.

Actually, over two years and countless weekends, evenings, etc.

But it's finally done. Track 9, my second novel is finished. It is practically ready for publication. Create Space is currently making the final corrections (this week!) and then, it's go time. I want to thank all the folks who hopped on board the Kickstarter train with me. Thank You! Without your help and support, this would not have come to fruition.

The plan is to take it (the new book as well as Badfish) to Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago this June 10th (come and see me!) and have the "official roll-out" / book launch for it after that. So, if you're in the mood for some suspense/horror reading, you might want to get your hands on Track 9. It will, of course, be available on Amazon and as a Kindle e-book.

For those who will read it, I hope it conveys a sense of desperation and a sense of battling the unknown. In our current world, on so many levels, there is a feeling of grasp…

It Won't Be Long Now...

The NEW Novel, Track 9, is almost within reading distance! The front and back cover are set. The physical proof is on its way. Final corrections/additions will be made.

We're probably looking at an "official" release date sometime during the last week of April or the first week of May. It will also be available in Kindle format. I plan on setting the price at $12 for paperback and .99 for Kindle (ebook).

Thank You.To each and every one of you.


The results are in! The pledges have been tallied.  The correct envelope has been opened.
The Kickstarter Campaign for Track 9 has finished and has made it!
There will, of course, be a flurry of activity happening over the next few weeks as the manuscript makes it way to Create Space. In addition, the NEXT post will contain the list of contributors that helped make Track 9 a reality. They are the reason that this project can and will go forward and they deserve their due.
Keep an eyeball peeled...the list is coming!!

29 Hours Left...

...and we are at 84%.

So, here's the deal. The campaign needs $190 to make it. That's still a good chunk of money for anyone. But, if say, 5 or 6 more people pledge about $35 or so, not only will they get TWO novels, their name in the new book as well as a mention on this blog, but they will be helping an independent female writer.

In this day and age, with the big box bookstores going the way of the ancients, indie and rogue authors are becoming more widespread. YOU can be a part of this "new wave".

Please, there isn't much time.
