    I'm excited to report three short story acceptances over the summer.

    On July 3, Hawkshaw Press accepted my detective story "Pearl of Great Price" for their 2022 mystery noir anthology, Hardboiled and Loaded with Sin

    Three weeks later, my Rehoboth Beach short story, "Where Do I Begin?" was accepted by Cat & Mouse Press for their anthology, Beach Secrets, due out in mid-November. 

    On August 1, my horror story "Break & Enter" finally found a home in Fae Shivers, an anthology to be released by Fae Corps Publishing on November 15, 2021. 

    Lastly. my South Korean ghost story, "Before She's Gone Forever," will be published by Gravelight Press in their biennial Halloween Party anthology coming out next month. 

    Not too shabby!

    2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the Great Migration from England when thousands of Pilgrims migrated to the New World seeking religious freedom and opportunity in the 17th century. Countless millions of immigrants followed over the next four centuries. 

    This is the story of one pilgrim family over nine generations whose heroism and leadership helped build a new nation.

    First, I've started a new series called "Three-Zee" for which the first book is entitled "Three-Zee", which I published at the end of January.

    Here's a description:

    Besides having a really bizarre nickname, Three-Zee Zook can see and talk to ghosts.  What’s bothering her about her latest sighting is that she’s also seen his corpse lying in the woods, except it disappears and she can find no evidence of it ever having been there.  With the ghost hanging around the neighboring empty Amish farmhouse she decides to investigate his murder, assuming it was murder, because she has no intention of sharing her ability with the local police.

    This books is available in all formats at Amazon (Including paperback), B&N, Apple, Kobo, Smashwords, etc.

    I also did the photography for a book about my church's architecture and stained glass windows entitled "The Word of God in Architecture and Stained Glass" by Dr. Charles C. Knerr.  I published that on Nov. 20, 2018.

    Many Christian churches, both old and modern, incorporate a great deal of Biblical symbolism into their architecture and stained glass windows.  The Church of the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Alburtis, Pennsylvania, exhibits many such symbols as detailed in this book featuring photographs of church architecture and windows with accompanying explanations and Biblical references.

    Because of its large format (8.5"x11") and color photography this book is available only in paperback format at Amazon.

    Links to these two books as well as all my other books are on my website
