My deepest gratitude to Susan Gonzalez for the guest blog she wrote last week. It was very well received and deeply appreciated. If you have not read it, I encourage you to scroll down to For No Fear: You Must Know Fear. Be sure and get her book, 100 Perks of Having Cancer.


**I am proud to announce the release of my new novel,  Novy's Son, The Selfish Genius.

Now available on Amazon.com as a paperback or an ebook


      Synopsis: From his early childhood, Matthew Collins sought love and acceptance from his father, who was raised as the bastard child of a famous artist. Matthew struggled with jealousy toward his younger brothers, and he questioned the morals and values of people around him.
As an adult, Matthew lived life his way, with years of lying, womanizing, and heavy drinking. Though married four times, did he ever find unconditional love? Would Matthew’s high intelligence, his love for his two daughters, and his unique philosophy of life help him rise above his demons?
