After revising and proofreading my new book, Jockey Hollow, for months, I probably can recite all 120 pages from memory. So I’m surprised that I still giggle when I read grumbling about money in Chapter Three and always get teary-eyed over the honest mutineers in Chapter Seven.

Chances are you remember some emotion-generating events from books you’ve read. Perhaps it was a heart breaking good-bye, a scary shadow in a dark cave, or maybe a celebration so contagious that you jumped up and down cheering. I’d like to hear about it. Just leave a comment on the Contact¬†page.

I hope you enjoy the website and check out Jockey Hollow. Thanks for stopping by.
