Love and Hamburgers

Rick and Liz are from two different worlds. He's a washed out rock muscian and she's just starting to find her place in the world. Will the generational divide keep them from finding love in a crazy world? Even if it does, they will both be in for a wild ride as Rick takes Liz under his wing in this cross country adventure in search of a perfect hamburger.

I started writing this book in Jaunary 2015. I had been deeply researching about pioneering life in Colorado for a Great and New American Tales story. In the midst of my research I fell asleep and woke up reciting out loud what would be the first few words I would write for Love and Hamburgers. Although it started out as a short story, it has blossomed into a novella of 50K+ words in ten chapters. I had a few hinky chapters to work out, but my jouney over this summer has given me the instperation to work it out. Now, I just need to find some time to sit down and write.

Get The Bear Wife now in print or ebook.


The Bear Wife is an American retelling of the classic story of Beauty and the Beast set against the historic culture of the northeastern tribes of the American Indians.

On the advice of her mother and a magical talking fire, a young girl named Wind Blossom embarks on the adventure of her lifetime in a quest to prove herself to her people. Along the way she must use her skills to survive the wilderness and eventually she’ll learn the true power of friendship and communication.

The Bear Wife is the first in a series of short stories that will retell traditional  tales set in North American culture.



Camera... Action!

In 2010, I co-authored, along with Josh Rodriguez, my first Stage Play titled Camera..Action!. It is an improved based play in the spirit of Comadia del Arte. The story revolves around a rag tag group trying to film a movie with no script and little direction. I think our small debute at the Odd Duck Theater went well and I look for to seeing it performed by other groups.
