Imagine 50 years of romance and high adventure.  For about that long, I've been doing just that — imagining fabulous tales of romance and high adventure, suspenseful fantasies and odd narrative rhymes to be read, watched, heard, told and sung. Now, as they are completed and published, those books, tales and songs will finally be available to the public. Visit the websites below to learn more about those properties and how you may get your hands on them -- or click on my photo, left, and join me for a mad dash down memory lane (now including an expanded, photo-illustrated, eight page section on FEELIN' GOOD.)
