Dying to be Good

image11

A Psychological Novel for anyone interested in their own growth from childhood to the authentic person they were meant to be.


Richard Eisenman is trying to live up to a wildly demanding self-image. His do-gooder obsession has led him to a painful life of compromising himself to accommodate others. Fed up with his sacrifices, he decides that the only face-saving way out of his marriage and career is to fake his own death — rather than look bad to himself or others. 


But can he really start all over? 


During a good-bye weekend with his aging parents, things shift radically when he meets up with the mysterious man who is supposed to help him vanish.

"WHATEVER" Happened to Alec

image13

A novel that explores what would make an all-American boy like Alec get into such trouble.


Fans of stories like Gone Girl will devour this page-turner — hoping that Alec won't become a danger to himself or others. 


Disastrous things can happen when parents don’t pay attention to their kids...husbands and wives don’t pay attention to each other...and people just don’t pay attention to themselves or what’s happening in the world around them.


The neglectful, self-absorbed characters around Alec justify their dysfunctional  behavior with wildly convoluted thinking.


IT'S THE 2016 U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION - BUT THESE FOLKS HAVE OTHER THINGS TO THINK ABOUT.


Politics take a back burner to the drama of personal lives.  Yet, you'll be surprisingly entertained or sympathetic to some of these deeply flawed characters...even in moments of disgust or fear.  And you'll root for Alec to be found and saved — although he might not be able to accept an honest helping hand.


YOU WON'T DISMISS THINGS WITH THE TERM "WHATEVER" AGAIN... WITHOUT THINKING.

Afterlust - Novel

image14

Lusting after someone is the easy part.  But what comes after unbridled passion? Is there a chance for true connection? 


Devin Reese, the founder of Afterlust — spiritual retreat center —hopes he can hold onto his sobriety and live a quiet life.  But when the adult daughter he has never met arrives at The Center, it becomes the stomping grounds for seduction, betrayal, bloodshed…as well as possible heart-felt redemption.


Devin, along with those around him, will have to sort through the romanticized and villainized preconceptions that these titillating characters have of one another.  


Is Devin who he thinks he is?  Is he the person others think he is?  Or like everyone in this novel, is he a fusion of idolized and demonized assumptions?  


Who are these people really and what are the disastrous or inspiring consequences of their choices?

Life Coach in the Jungle

image15

AN IMAGINARY TALE


His online training has not prepared Roy Oakwood for the avalanche of strange behavior from the couple he is coaching.  


Marion is all over the place, ‘percolating like the jiggle-valve on an old-fashioned pressure cooker,’ while her seductive boyfriend, Aaron, is jiggling his bisexuality all over Roy.  


Meanwhile, Roy’s own relationship to a disgruntled Ironman is on the rocks.  And a string of outrageous coincidences will turn all their lives upside down when Marion’s bible-toting parents swoop in transporting a rare capuchin monkey who has mysteriously been smuggled into the trendy Los Angeles suburb where they all live.  


Can Roy stop his fumbling attempts to fix things?  Can he and all the others trust a jungle animal to teach them how to release their inhibitions and let their inner nature be their Guide?  Will they continue doing what they’ve been programed to do, or seize the adventurous lives unfolding right before them?  


With plenty of surreal humor, this fast-paced unpredictable romp will keep you laughing, while diving shamelessly into the universal depths of love, hate, fear, desperation, boredom, denial, hope — and unbridled sensuality.  



“The city is not a concrete jungle; it is a human zoo.”
