My first novel, January's Paradigm, was published in 1998. Current Entertainment Monthly in Ann Arbor, Michigan, wrote of January's Paradigm, "(readers) will not be able to put it down."

In 2008 I completed Backstop: A Baseball Love Story in Nine Innings, which is available from Second Wind Publishing and in Kindle format. Backstop was nominated a Michigan Notable Book in 2010, while the Lewis Department of Humanities at the Illinois Institute of Technology adopted it as required reading for one of their spring 2011 courses--Baseball: America's Literary Pastime.

Also in 2008, I finished work on a futuristic piece, Chaotic Theory, a novella that explores the conjecture of how the flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil might result in a tornado in Texas.

I completed The Cobb Legacy in 2010, a murder mystery romance that spans two centuries written around baseball legend, Ty Cobb.
