Dark and Twisted Landscapes

My first book to appear on Amazon, Granny Porn, is a comic novel of romantic suspense. I have others near completion, but this one explores the dark and twisted landscape of old age in a way unlike any novel I’ve ever read. I wrote it last but I’ve published it first, because the characters demanded I tell their story–they punished me with strange visions whenever I stopped writing–and most of all, because they took me on adventures that still make me smile. I hope you, too, will enjoy the crazy, raunchy ride through Granny Porn.
