What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
A Distortion of Reality. I was a senior in high school in 1984 and it just came to me one day. I worked on it off and on for several years then stopped for about 6 years. I finished it three years ago and had a lot of changes including the title. The original title was Dreams but it wasn’t as fitting as the current title.

Not really. Sometimes it just comes out of no where.

What are you working on now?
I have two I have started, ‘Tales of the Bedroom Madame’ and the newest one, ‘Johnny Song, The Assassins Assassin’.
