Upcoming Projects

Hi, everyone. I’m working on large print editions of both In The Eye of The Beholder (my debut novel) and its award-winning sequel, In The Eye of The Storm. My day job is in the eye care business, and I’ve learned that there is quite a need for large print works.

For a little blast from the past, here’s the book trailer for In The Eye of The Beholder, from the days when it was published by Treasureline Books. Enjoy!

Sample Saturday: “In The Eye of The Beholder”

“Of course,” I responded in surprise. “Most people do.”

“Then how can you bear to look on me,” he responded, still whispering. As the carriage moved away, he opened the drape to let the light in and reveal his unmasked face to me.

The left side of his face, his entire mouth, and jaw … all were so handsome that they would take the breath away from an angel. The right side, though, was discolored and twisted. A port wine birthmark discolored skin so thin and fragile that lumps of misshapen bone and delicate blue veins could be seen through it. His left eye was fringed with thick black lashes; the right was barely lidded and sunken in the socket, but was the same soul-filled green-gold as its twin. The right side of his nose was also damaged, the soft nare non-existent.

“Look on this monster, and tell me again how you care more for the soul than the face,” he said in a ragged voice.
