This website is a kind of nexus where links to my other hangouts can be found. I will, however, give out some reflections and thoughts about my books, their characters, the plot, etc. in the individual book pages, so check them out
I will add new pages on this site to correspond with every new published book of mine in order of release date. One book per page. Unless they're short stories...
I hope you enjoy my books - more to follow
