Book Launch Events!

Please join me for two upcoming book launch events to celebrate the launch of my new thriller, What She Never Said. The first will be held on Sunday September 22 from 3-5 at Santa Barbara’s iconic Book Den. The event will include a short reading followed by a Q & A. The Book Den has been serving the literary needs of Santa Barbara residents and visitors for more than 80 years. For more information visit

A benefit for The Friends of the Santa Barbara Library will be held on Thursday September 26 from 5-7:30. Publisher Thomas & Mercer has generously donated 50 copies of What She Never Said and all sale proceeds will be directed to the Friends. I’ll be interviewed by longtime local sports reporter Barry Punzal – the perfect choice as I’m an athlete at heart. Expect beverages and appetizers and mingling and a signing to wrap things up. Last year’s launch event raised over $1,500. Let’s double that this year!
