I apologize that I’m barraging you with so many announcements so close together, but since two more books will be released shortly, I thought I better tell you about a different project now.

I’ve begun writing my first fictional short story for adults. It’s title is Legacy.

While much of my fictional work will have dark elements, characters facing much adversity and many challenges, I hope readers experience truth and kindness in all that I write, and that it reminds them of the greatness and goodness within themselves and others.

As I don’t want to confuse readers of this blog for non-fiction by adding fiction to it, I’ve created a site for those who’d like to follow my adventures and misadventures in writing fictional short stories.

You’re warmly invited to check out that blog, which I’ve named “Imaginings of a Grateful Man”:


With Love,

      Hi, Diane. I’m sorry to hear that you are having difficulty following my new blog. Thank you for letting me know. I’ve not heard of anyone else having Issues but I plan to ask others. I don’t know how to fix the problem, but I plan to try various things at this end. Thank you for trying!
