Since finishing my publishing career and spending over thirty wonderful years managing my own publishing company, working with over fifty delightful authors, publishing over 130 titles, and selling gads of books every year, I have fully committed myself to writing in Tucson where I moved in 2015.


If you are looking for the Focus titles I published, they are now being published and sold by my friends at Hackett Publishing here.


Since 2002, my partner, Leslie Powell and I have been writing plays. We were living at the time in Newburyport MA and became part of the exciting theater and writing community there. In Tucson my focus has been on fiction. A list of my publications can be found on my resume here.


And here's a link to my dear Leslie's page.
