Currently revising "Color" to share a message that discrimination is NOT acceptable. These changes are a testament to the power of Wattpad readers' voices to inspire.

"Color" is the story about overcoming hate against the greatest of odds.

I've also started a poetry book, titled "Poetry for the Heart and Soul". :-)
For a place to write and grow, thank you WATTPAD - Where Authors Tell Their Powerfully Amazing Dreams!
Yep, I grew on the Jersey shore. Nope, it was nothing like the show. 😂

I've faced my share of discrimination 😩; more than most, less than some. There are hints of my experiences in "Color" - both positive and negative.

Presently, I live in Pennsylvania where I'm revising "Color" for an August 2021 book launch. Pre-marketing, pen name acquisition, and website setup begin by January 2020. 😃

The greatest struggle I've faced - my mother falling down her basement steps and becoming partially paralyzed. She is my inspiration for writing historical fiction: To capture the past. To show despite great suffering, there is always hope. My other inspiration is my brother, Joe, with Down Syndrome.
