For so long now, I have attempted to put this book into the hands of a literary agent. I wish so much that they'd read more than just the first chapter or even the first five chapters. Anyway, you'll see me mention it many times in discussions, so here it is,,,,Chapter 1:     Troubled...

What's in a Cover?  I thought when Arirang: The Bamboo Connection was published it had the most beautiful cover I could imagine for the story.  The romance of Greek mythology figures throughout the novel, and the Parthenon on the bright red cover, two gold bamboo rings representing the unrequited...

Repentance and redemption are close cousins.  Often, repentance is only fully realized and satisfied when redemption is at hand.  Such is the tale of Ghost Orchid, my next fiction novel soon to be released by L & L Dreamspell.  This story of love, lies and redemption is really the story of a...
