INFORMATION
My new book of poetry Flourish and book of short stories When You Wish is now available on Amazon.com. There is a direct link at the bottom of this page. My book, Tales of a Scottish Wood, is also available on Amazon. It has fifteen enchanting tales of Sean's adventures, some were posted on FanStory, others are new stories. My poetry book, When Stars Stand Still is also available. Both books have over fifty poems written in multiple styles that all readers can enjoy.
There is a direct link at the bottom of the page.

I live on a lake with kayaks and canoes. We have a great blue heron, an occasional eagle, all kinds of ducks, hawks and owls; deer, rabbits, and unfortunately squirrels.
