Author has written 50 stories for Chuck, Persuasion, and Pride and Prejudice.

My two Austen stories, *Balter* and *Tides of Bath, are available on Amazon in ebook and paperback under the pseudonym, Newton Priors. Also under that pseudonym is my Western, *Heaven and Hell*.

My novel, *Big Swamp* (Meryton Press), is now published, and available in ebook, paperback, and audiobook. Another novel, *The Vanishing Woman* (a Christmas Mystery) was published just before Christmas 2023 (Meryton). *Pride, Prejudice, and Pretense* will be published by Meryton later this year.


“I’m writing about what I’ve always written about. How do we stand up to whatever life is asking us? Anybody who’s writing anything, if it’s going to be worthwhile, is writing about our baseline humanity and how we hang on to it as long as we can..." Joe Henry

"The one faculty [Henry] James felt that the artist may require of his audience is that of close attention or deliberate appreciation; for it is by that faculty alone that the audience participates in the work of art...upon its continuous exertion depend[s] the very existence of what he [writes] ." R. P. Blackmur


Thanks for reading!


"Love, if worth anything, seems to demand pain and strain in order to prove itself, and is not satisfied with an easy attainment. How indeed should one know the great heights except by the rocks and escarpments? And pain often in some strange way seems to be the measure of love — the measure by which we are assured that love is true and real; and so (which is one of the mysteries) it becomes transformed into a great joy." Edward Carpenter
