Another Special One
This short-story is a take off from some of my early experiences, working as a child abuse investigator and case worker in youth and family services, which left story threads rumbling in my head.
Gemstone in the Rubble
A short story inspired by a photograph of the war in Chechnya. The photo showed a ragged soldier standing at an upright piano. What would it have been like for a tired old soldier to stumble upon a piano in the cold bleak remains of a bombed out house? Maybe there is solace and hope to be found in unexpected places.
The Threefer Mystery
A crime novel based on the haunting death of a case-worker's young client, and his lawyer wife's trial with the mob. Humor and romance combine to drive this Pittsburgh based mystery.
