Welcome to my webpage.
Welcome to my webpage. Its design, created by illustrator Ann Hackett, represents my background and embraces some of the themes of my novels.
During our first meeting over breakfast, I shared with Ann stories of growing up in Santa Fe. Hence, I wanted a website exemplifying a Northern New Mexico image, to the extent that was possible. She listened attentively. At our next meeting Ann shared a mock-up of this site. I was delighted and amazed how Ann skillfully translated my stories to a design that suited me ideally. That got me thinking about the incredible power of storytelling.
We love stories so much because they give us direction in our future experiences and give us context to our past experiences, Michael Gazzaniga, a cognitive neuroscientist and author of Who’s in Charge? theorizes. He goes on to say that stories provide the “reassurance” which helps us survive.
My earnest hope is that my novels give a morsel of direction or context in your life’s walk, and leave you with a measure of enjoyment, faith and comfort.
Paz y Buena Salud.
