Thanks for Coming By!
By day I enjoy my ministry as a Pastoral Associate at Our Lady of Grace Church in Leisure World, Silver Spring, MD. In my free time I write novels dealing with murder, violence, and sex, while offering the hope of conversion to our God of unconditional love; my stories also focus on what needs to be changed in the church I love.
My first novel, At the Last Supper, (2005) is available at wingsepress.com or Amazon.com. My second novel, Sacred Betrayal, (2007) published by Publish Amerca is available from publishamerica.com, or Barnes & Noble at www.bn.com or from Amazon.com. My third novel, My Priest, My Husband, can be ordered from wingsepress.com. or from Amazon.com. For easy ordering click on the BUY NOW buttons. In response to many requests for a different prayer experience especially during Lent, I wrote a devotional prayer and meditation booklet. In 2011 Stations of the Cross for Today's DIsciples was published by Twenty-Third Publications.
Released in November 2012, is my latest novel, The Second Time Around, which asks, "What would happen if God appeared on earth again, but this time as a daughter?"

“God made the angels to show him splendor -- as He made animals for innocence and plants for their simplicity.
But man He made to serve Him wittily, in the tangle of his mind.”

A Man For All Seasons
Hunger here in the richest nation in the world? Impossible, one might think. But the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ annual Hunger and Homelessness Survey makes it clear that hunger and food insecurity (not always having access to enough food to meet basic needs) not only exist, but are on the rise. The increase is reflected in the fact that the two dozen cities surveyed found that requests for ...
