Here is the prologue for the upcoming book - STRYMON: 

I have no childhood, at least no memory of one. Strangely enough, my first memory is standing on a beach on the western shores of Lesbos. I have no idea how old I was that day and so, no idea how old I am now. I had the fuzzy dew of youth on my cheeks, so I must have been in my teens. If that is true, I must be in the tenth or eleventh Olympiad of my life. To be honest, it does not concern me because I continue to have a miraculously interesting existence.

On that day, so long ago, I could only assume I had no family, at least none alive, for why would they have abandoned me. I did not know my name, but one came to me as I stood on that beach, and I chose to accept it. I am Strymon.

I have launched a monthly newsletter that will focus on the research that goes beyond that which is actually reflected in my books - SINON OF KIRRA, MENTU THE NUBIAN and ANISSI. The topics will be diverse and will range from broad to very focused. The research is generally around Ancient Greece, Egypt and Kush (Nubia) (ca. 600 BCE). It will be sent as a pdf attached to an email. If you would like to receive this newsletter, send your name and email address to: Cancel any time.

Email me to purchase books, bowls, goblets, tap handles etc. My email:

is my newest novel. It is an historical fiction taking place in Ancient Greece in the 4th year of the 44th Olympiad (ca. 600 BCE). Sinon is a young man who goes to Delphi to ask of his future and is sent by the Oracle on an epic journey.

A collection of 51 poems selected from four decades of playing with words. 


Mary doesn’t realize at first that she is a rebel looking for a cause. Her teenage daughter and son don’t need as much of her time so she takes on the regular visit to her father-in-law who has advanced cancer and Altzheimer’s. When she realizes that he is going to die with no significant memory of living she decides to research his life in an effort to give it back to him before he passes. In the process Mary discovers something that changes her life.

This book went into a second printing with a new cover. Special thanks to Mara Stockton Wang for the new Phoenix artwork.
