Florida Librarians at Caribe Royale

Good Morning,

It has been a busy and exciting month for me. Great news. My short story “Skyward” will be in this year’s FWA Collection. The top 60 entries were selected. Woohoo! Three members of my Villa Writers group will have entries included. Sandy Hall, Barry Dimick, and I all made the cut.

My entry into the Royal Palm Literary Awards contest is a semi-finalist.

I’m the new Florida Writers Foundation president. 

Other great news: Backpack Blues Ignite the Fire Within is available on Amazon. Would you like a signed copy? I shall be in Orlando selling and signing my new poetry anthology at the Caribe Royal tomorrow as part of the Florida Library Conference. I’ll be signing from 11:30-1:30.

If you cannot get to the Caribe Royale, you can find me at the Muse Bookstore in downtown DeLand, Florida, on Wednesday, June 13, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. I’ll be part of the Wine, Women, and Chocolate celebration.

Please put Wednesday, July 11, 6:30 p.m. on your calendar. I shall be doing a short talk titled “Heart to Heart” about the novel in verse. Following my presentation, I’ll sell and sign books.

Would you like me to come to a bookstore or school near you? Let me know when and where. Maybe, we can make it happen.

If you have read any of my books, I’d be honored if you would write a review on Amazon or Good Reads. It would really be helpful. Thank you.
