About the Book    About the Author

Atlas of Women is a collection of short stories which cover the life span of women; a girl is haunted after being bullied by her peers until a friend helps her blossom into young womanhood, a mother preoccupied by a mentally ill son forgives her disrespectful daughter posthumously, a wife copes with a psychotic husband by giving him his freedom, and more...

Mademoiselle, a novella, started out as young adult genre. But as I wrote, Philipa grew up into a young woman who found her way after a short detour, choosing the more difficult path.

The Golden Boy ended up exactly as I imagined it would. A family deals with a loved one’s mental illness with love and support, but when there is no longer any hope for normalcy; prayer and grace allow them to step aside.

Tribute to a Dead Friend is my tribute to every woman who’s lost a close friend but continues to be inspired and comforted by her spirit.

A Night Encounter is a short story about regrets and self-forgiveness. A daughter's disrespect borne of sibling rivalry comes back to haunt her in a most unusual and gentle way. As in every work, there are elements of truth in the story, but it is pure fiction. I spent time in my garden last summer, convinced my late mother was there with me. It was a very therapeutic and comforting experience.

Vapors, selected to appear in Willow Review 2013, is a fantasy in which a wife discovers a way to make her presence known after her husband reveals a painful secret.
