CURRENT PROJECTS

MARVIN – A NOVEL

My most current and exciting work is on my psychological/paranormal thriller entitled simply, Marvin. 

Marvin has lost his home, his wife, and her horse in a California wildfire two years ago. He quit his job as a psychology teacher at the local junior college and spends his time cooped up in a small trailer he placed on the ashen property. He walks his wife’s dog around the conservancy and through the woods once a day. This day, Tati, discovers something deep in the woods, two children, a young precocious girl and her younger brother who never speaks. Marvin begins having experiences with these children which become so bizarre, he’s convinced he’s having a psychotic break. When he tells his therapist friend Henrietta about the weird children in the woods, she says they sound exactly like the two who were brutally murdered in those woods two years ago.  Now Marvin’s life teeters between insanity, the paranormal, and a murder investigation in which he finds himself the prime suspect.
