Welcome to my site!
As a professional theater person, I've penned theatrical pieces for all ages, and served as resident playwright for various Bay Area schools, since 1994.
My first novel, Frankie in Paris, spent a week as a #1 top selling YA book (James Patterson was #2!). Some of my poetry and short stories have been included in various anthologies and publications, and I was a winner in Me First Magazine’s short Story competition. My story, Grampy’s Rock, was featured in Chicken Soup For the Soul: Christmas is in the Air!
Late 2021-2022 were exciting, because I was able to release several novels: My speculative fiction novel, Necromancer's Garden, my time-travel SciFi book, Will Travel, and the first two books in my The Axe’s Daughter magical realism series!
In October I forayed into Psychological Horror, releasing my gritty book, The Klein Girls.
I’m currently juggling three manuscripts, while taking care of my family and being distracted by whatever new creative endeavor I feel cowled to attempt!
I’m always happy to chat about my books!
“Mother says the barn is filled with The Bad, but it’s one of the only places Viola finds peace. Her memories aren’t her own and it’s almost too much for a nine-year-old to bear.
Generations had been born on Klein Farm, but as far as Viola can tell, none of their lives had been happy — and some of them ended in violence, including her own.”
