A 25 YEAR ANNIVERSARY means a lot to me!

25 years ago I submitted a manuscript titled, THE LAST VALENTINE to several literary agents. I was in a hospital bed recovering from a near-death bleeding event described in the audio at the "ABOUT" page at this website.  This was the second time this had happened in two years.  In fact, I used the experience of what it is like to be dying from stomach wounds to describe our hero's final hours at the end of the story. 


I share this for a reason, and it is profound; at least to me. Had I not gone through what I did, the pain and years of physical suffering too, I would not have become a published author. I would not have written THE LAST VALENTINE or 10 additional books, with more on the way. 

My condition was near fatal. I didn't expect to live long enough to see a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie starring Betty White -- The Lost Valentine -- made from my first novel, The Last Valentine in 2011. I didn't expect to make it to 2022. But here I am, healthier, alive, and still writing.  


And I did something I also had not planned for...


...I bought a bunch of ORIGINAL HARDCOVERS each time one was published. Then, instead of selling them, I stored them for some future date.  I just never got around to offering them to fans and collectors until now.  I guess I was just too tired to care.
