To all who read this I ask for patience. This is my first personal website, and I am learning how to use it. I look forward to discussing why I write, what I write, and why I think the writing is both entertaining and important. In the Jungle Rules Trilogy I am creating what I call “thrillers with substance”. I want to make sure that substance shines through the fast-moving narratives. Your comments will help me a great deal, both to write better books and to explain the fine points of the stories. More later.
