Hi. Welcome to my about.me page. I'm a novelist, screenwriter, and sculptor, and now, filmmaker.

(I'm presently in pre-production on an Indie supernatural thriller script I wrote called NIGHT KILL. This is a ghost story staring all Thai actors, spoken in Thai, with English subtitles. The crew is international from six countries, so far. Please follow along on our journey by visiting

My story ideas come from my vivid imagination, but my inspiration draws from extensive world travel and fascinating careers: from US military medic to hairstylist, then Washington D.C. Police officer to NYC photographer.

Later, I converted a chicken coop in the woods into a live-in studio and taught myself metal sculpture. That rudimentary craft expanded into the fine arts. Sculptures in bronze and fiberglass led to shows in the US, England and Thailand.

My passion for all arts segued into: costume design (top 100 designers in the book, Fashion: 2001); modeling agency art director; fashion show designer; water feature designer, computer illustrator, and a top sculptor for special effects, sets and props in the entertainment industry with work in over thirty major films, hotels and theme parks worldwide.

During my film career, I learned screenwriting firsthand by pestering the many actors, directors, and producers whose films I worked on, as well as attending many writing and directing workshops. To explore character and environment more, I took up narrative fiction. I've published 8 novels, and written 19 screenplays.

I continue on the journey.

These are novels I've written to date. All available at Amazon.com in ebook and print:
