Writing and Illustration

I just finished the second draft of T’Bugs*, a science fiction chapter book for intermediate grade readers. This has been a long-term collaboration with another creative fellow named Tom Lemery. The story is about a swarm of genetically engineered insects that escaped from a Lab. For a quick peek at this work, follow the link above or click on Samples. This project was conceived over three years ago as an animated motion picture, so we also created a “movie treatment.” Our manager, Eric Canton of Canton Literary Management, is busy introducing both the movie and book.
