Thanks for stopping by. I’m
a published writer in search of a literary agent. I’ve had
dozens of travel and boating articles
published in national magazines in the US and abroad, and my
first book, “Ready for Sea!”
(Sheridan House) was released in 2002.
I have now completed “Intentional
which I'd like to see published. I’m finishing up a new
adventure novel, too, “Dead Reckoning,” about 90% complete
at this writing. I have the first draft and beautiful photos for
a travelogue (ŕ la Paul Theroux), working title “Roads Less Traveled,“ and a few other books (“Tor’s Tours,”
“Tor’s Tips,” “Travels with Rosa”) ready to develop.
The time has come to align myself with a reliable, resourceful
literary agent to find publishers for these books. I invite you
to contact me to discuss what we can do for each other.
work I have ready for immediate publication, “Intentional
represents a fresh approach to a subject with which I have
considerable experience. For 20 years I’ve studied and
practiced what are popularly known as positive thinking
techniques, often with remarkable success. I’ve read most of
the other books written on the subject and find they invariably
dilute the simple, essential techniques of this practice with
chapters-full of religious or psychological dogma and endless
case histories. It becomes a chore for the reader to find the
actual techniques, obscured as they are by so much padding.
What the genre is lacking, and what I have
written, is a concise, straightforward presentation of the
techniques for practicing and applying the art and science of
Intentional Thinking. The result is necessarily a small book.
Rather than fatten it with fluff, I chose to augment the page
count and soften the presentation by inserting framed,
inspirational quotes throughout the book, from Sophocles and
Jesus to Henry Ford and Yoda. The layout is reader-friendly and
results in a 165-page book that is easy to read and easy to
absorb. There is both a market and a need for such a book.
action novel, “Dead Reckoning,” might be described as a
classic Western transmuted into a present-day Caribbean sailing
adventure, where the hero rides a cruising sailboat instead of a
trusty steed and the bad guys are Columbian drug smugglers
rather than Mexican banditos. Still, in the end the beautiful
girl has to be saved and the hero must struggle against
seemingly insurmountable odds. I haven't reinvented the wheel,
but I've surely given it a new spin. The characters are lively,
the setting is exotic, and the story is fast-paced, fun and,
