Featured Speaker at AAUW Literary Lunch March 2015, Laguna Beach.

Fantastic annual event, honored to talk about books. 

Interview at KX 93.5 Laguna Radio
"The Friendship Show" with Mark Miller and Scott Hayes. January 18th. Launches the novel. Listen to the show - some great surprises!


"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.
