In addition to real estate and photography, I also love writing. I'm interested in collaborating on bringing a different life to my books. Screenplays, plays, shorts. Contact me to pursue these possibilities. Moon Cafe and Polyester Charlie in particular lend themselves for collaboration of this sort. To get your hands one one, email me.

Smart Lucky Jones © 2012
Smart Lucky Jones is my first book. It's about Mr. and Mrs. Jones and their son Smart Lucky Jones (a functioning dysfunctional family) and includes other characters revolving around their lives. There are many layers and intended meanings behind the words themselves; there is a very strong undercurrent. Writing this book was an aimless wander into my own ideas and thoughts. It deals with themes of sexuality, control, autonomy and fate.
mOOn café © 2012
Moon café is about three earthlings used in an experiment by an efee from planet F. It explores themes revolving around earthlings' inexplicable flaws as viewed from an alien perspective and themes connected to free will (in a way).
Nobody's Secret Thoughts © 2013
This one was very fun to write. I laughed a lot during the process because I wrote it in first person from his perspective. It's about a guy who gets involved with a woman (Molly) he met at a party, and follows the course of their relationship with detours along the way that reveal the layers and background of each character. He is very honest about his feelings and exposes insecurities and crooked thoughts about himself that most people can relate to though few would confess to. Its focus is on vulnerability, loss, mourning, and guilt.
Empty Hills © 2013
Empty Hills is written in a different tone than the first three. This one is more poetic and a bit more dramatic. I would say the other books are written in a voice similar to the voice I speak with, whereas this one is from the voice I hear when I am thinking. I wanted to write something that wasn't laced with humor, so I present the characters and their circumstances in a more serious tone. Destiny, abandonment, power of lost love, and hope.
Polyester Charlie © 2014
When Charlie discovers that his life is missing something important, he sets out to do something about it. The events that follow touch the lives of many. Polyester Charlie is a quirky book about self discovery and rudimentary enlightenment.
