Hi Russell - short answer is, yes, you caught my attention!

Here are some writing samples - although most of it is non-fiction, I've got ideas based on life experiences that are waiting to be explored!


P.S. Recently released Kindle ebook -

P.P.S. Driving the Birds resonates with me on a free different levels - best discussed in person..

Greeting, Writers.

I am seeking to partner with a kindred fiction writer, or two, who shares similar writing: goals, experience, and needs. 

When I lived in Orange County, I had lead nearly 200 writers critique groups, over a period of six years. I eventually learned that it is more valuable, for me, to work with a fellow, dedicated writer, or two, who understands my style and voice and I his or hers, and we share a mutual respect of skills, understanding, and talent.Tall order? Yes. But, I'm working on my fifth novel, having a creative blast, but I need a brainstorming partner for plot, voice, philosophy, and more. Don't need no copy editor to dot my "I"s nor cross "T"s. I love to get into the story of my writing partner, the story that he or she needs to tell, not the story I think that he or she should tell. And I need someone to get their creativity around my story. 

Large critique gatherings are invaluable for those who are working on first novels. But, I have written four novels (The first two were practice, the second two are publishable, after I get my break with a best seller) and the memoir of Jabonkah Sackey, DRIVING THE BIRDS--my hope that best seller.

So, have I resonated with anyone out there? I realize that this is a selfish need, but surely there is another like me who writes daily, with passion, goals, and joy.

Feel the call? Email me or call or text me at [masked]. I live in La Verne. 

My best wishes for your writing success!
