Welcome to My Author Portfolio

This picture reminds me of the time I dreamed I was miniaturized and stuffed into a time release capsule. If anyone is interested, my story The Cure can be purchased on Amazon as part of the most recent American Writers Review (San Fedele Press) for $3.99 on Kindle and $15.00 for paperback.
