After many years of being a “struggling” actor in LA, I turned to writing. I have had two novels published: “I’m No P. I.” and “A Ghoulish Good Time.” I have had MS for serval years now; I know physical and mental pain; so I need much laughter to endure it. Hopefully, my novels do just that–give much laughter.
IN TIME OF NEED
Mrs. Reed becomes a P.I.

Mrs. Madeline Reed is a 68-year-old woman who has done nothing with her life other than getting married after high school graduation and work as a cafeteria-aid until she retired.
She always believed that she could have achieved more, but, sadly, it never happened. A shy person, she always loved reading, especially detective novels, such as Miss Marple, and often played with the idea of becoming a private investigator.
When her next-door neighbor’s daughter and son-in-law died in a house-fire, Mrs. Gluck hires Madeline to find out if that no-good son-in-law of hers was still cheating on her daughter at the time of the accident.
What Madeline finds out is shocking—it’s murder! Murder most foul!

Genre: Urban Fantasy / Humor
Murder, Vampires and Leprechauns is a novel of three short stories of suspense, action and murder—and, yes, all of them have much humor.

The manager is so angry with him for quitting without giving notice that he threatens to kill him and begins stalking him by phone every night.

Because of Tom and Jim’s own greed and wanting to keep the gold, the leprechauns kidnap Tom’s mother, Lill. Tom and Jim must come up with a sharp plan to rescue Tom’s mother. In the third story, Hurts’ Christmas Present, Tom has quit the agency and Hurts is on his own.

A GHOULISH GOOD TIME
Genre: Urban Fantasy / Humor
This book is three “spooky” tales. The first one is of a burned-out, old, police detective who almost becomes a victim himself of a demon that whispers into its victim’s ear of his/her innermost fears. The second story is of a second virgin birth in our time. Jesus bowed down to Satan the first time, and that changed our whole world. The world is ruled by Satan, and God gives man a chance with this new Mary. This story is full of giants, sword fights and man’s salvation. The final story is a comedy of a very inept, wannbe private eye who while trying to save a girl’s life, becomes involved with the Mafia of vampires and keeps peeing in his pants when scared–which is often.
