The “Forks in the Road” series is a sometimes fun sometimes serious examination of the process, influences, and results of decision-making throughout our lives. What information or advice is available? How will we recognize or remember those key points in our lives?

My observations, provided in both informational and storytelling formats, cover many age groups and assist readers in better decision-making in their own lives.  Sometimes good advice is available, and we just need to find it and consider it.

If you would like to support our efforts on improving decision-making, please consider a donation to our GoFundMe campaign click here.

"A Summer With Grandpa"

This will be the second book in the series and is still in development.  Many cultures revere the wisdom and experience that comes from the living of life, over many years.  Our world may have instant answers through technology, but it misses the full flavor and context of lessons shared through the story-telling by our elders.  This book combines the innocence and acceptance of youth with the slower pace and reflection that comes with older age.  Again there are positive characters and a fun approach.  The "wisdom" shared is very applicable to our lives in the modern world. 

Expected publication date is Fall 2017. You can help support this book below.

Forks in the Road

Book Series


This first book in the series deals with decisions made in the college years and their impact on subsequent years of the lives of our characters. An informal reunion of a tight group of friends spurs memories of the fun times, but also reflection upon key decision points that affected each of their lives. Friendships are rekindled and the potential for romance may emerge as friends start to see each other in a new light. Readers that have graduated from college should recognize themselves (or friends) in some of the characters and perhaps recall the key advice they received -- and chose to follow… or not.
