Time passes. Relationships change. What does it mean to be devoted in an age of uncertainty.

in the shadow of artists and writers, a mysterious landlord, and the threat of pandemic, an older couple, amicably divorced, spend the winter at a beach town and confront themes of intimacy, the bonds of marriage and friendship, and the inexorable impact of age. 

Contemporary fiction for contemplative readers.

Fantastic event, honored to talk about books. 

"The road goes north and south, you choose which way you go." So goes a thought running throughout the new novel "Colors of the Wheel." The insightful novel captures some of the complexities of race consciousness in America. The well-written segmented character developments blend into a composite of unified reflection on nuances of race, culture and society. Something for everyone. Good discussion novel, especially for white folks. Can't speak for people of color. I've purchased a number of copies to give to friends.
