I am a writer currently working on my fourth novel, and the adaptation of my third into a screenplay. I live and write at home in Upstate NY, where I have raised my children and make a living as a house painter. I used to be a carpenter, and worked for a high end construction firm, but cannot compete physically in that realm any longer. So I paint. And I write. My latest novel, an epic apocalyptic adventure tale, was always meant to be a movie, but I wrote the book first. It is the first part in a series, and I am still seeking publication. My last novel, AS PENELOPE THAWS, is available on Amazon e-books.
