My  new short story collection published by Wiseblood Books is now available at fine bookstores, such as The Garden District Bookshop in New Orleans,  This is a powerful collection of what all of us (birds of a feather) share as human beings: Sin and its risk, and the presence of God's mercy, waiting for us to realize it's there.


Birds of a Feather was chosen as one of the top 25 best books of the first half of 2014 by Englewood Review of Books!  Englewood Review of Books 

My new, and yet unpublished novel, FAITHFUL, won First Runner Up in Poets & Writers 2014 Maureen Egen Writers Exchange Contest.

A Hunger in the Heart was used as a theme for The Saint Louis Marian Conference in January, 2015.


"Love isn't a symbol. It's an irritant, and it will cost you some skin!"

... The words of Sarah Neal Bridgeman in A Hunger in the Heart.
