The Ragman 

It’s summer… A time for Lizzy Seabrook, a headstrong 13 year old to cavort with her girlfriends and catch a few ‘rays’. The last thing she expects when she takes her dog for a walk in the woods is to encounter Victor Trenton, a deranged recluse, hiding from the law. The Ragman is the story of a young girl’s attempts to survive ‘on the run’ with a murderous, psychotic man, and the strange alliance she forms with the mysterious psychic Celia Damson, in an effort to reunite her with her mother.

Just as he is about to fully regain their love and trust, he discovers that he is dying. As he hovers close to death, he is given a gift that is offered to very few, a glimpse of heaven.

A Return to Eden

This was a gift to my father-in-law, Charles Sears.  It is a collection of his poems. His poetry is an unfettered glimpse into the condition of his heart and soul throughout his life. You can sense the pain of a childhood spent without a father and a cold distant mother. You can sense his rage at a world at war and man’s inhumanity toward his fellow man. But, you can also see his reverence for God and nature, as well as his boundless love for children, especially his own.  It also contains a short story called 'The Knife' that we co-wrote.

The Knife ( a short story)

The Knife is a miraculous gift given to me, after my Father-in-law and best friend, long ago passed away. I always knew what a gifted poet ‘Pop’ was, but I never knew he had any interest in writing a short story. However, as I sifted through an old tattered box of his poetry, I found the outline for a short story set in the old west. The Knife, was not only an opportunity to co-write a story with him, but the gift of once again being able to share something we both loved to do.
