My debut novel, JUST OUT OF REACH, has received the following honors:

iUniverse Awards:

  • Editor's Choice
  • Rising Star
  • Reader's Choice
 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest:
  • Quarterfinalist (top 250 out of 5,000 entries in the category I entered)
Barnes & Noble, New York:
  • After revewing/reading my novel, B&N made the decision to purchase 82 paperback copies to stock in their bookstores! Not bad for a self-published first novel!

My second novel, FATE, FLATULENCE, AND FORTUNE COOKIES, was also a quarterfinalist this year in the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest.  Being a quarterfinalist - twice - in the ABNA contest means that each of my books were one of the final 500 entries in an initial field of 10,000 contest entries worldwide. For both of my books to reach the top 5% of the list is very exciting and very rewarding, and makes me believe that I'm doing what I should be doing - WRITING! :-)
