Welcome to my new Blog!

I'll never forget the line from Coyote Ugly, where Violet is asked what she'll do now that all her dreams have come true. In my case, now that my first novel, Dangerous Waters, is in the process of being published (after three and a half years of writing, editing and revising), one of the first things I need to do is get my own Blog up and running :)

So who am I? Well, I grew up in a small town in northern Michigan as the youngest child of a close-knit family of seven. I met my wife, Teresa, while attending Saginaw Valley State University. We've now been married for sixteen years and have provided a loving home for several four-legged "kids". I have always enjoyed writing, and still have fond memories of reading my first book, a children's novella, to local grade schools when I was 14. Since graduating from college I have worked for three large corporations, and have lived in Louisville for the last twelve years. 

As for my novel, I've included a short synopsis below to introduce you to Emily's world. Please post your comments to let me know what you think!! The release date has not been set yet.

For Emily Waters, a nature loving small-town girl with an overprotective father, heading off to Boston University to study conservation biology is a dream come true—until a chance encounter catapults her into a mythical world she’d do anything to escape.

The latest victim in a rash of abductions near campus, Emily is brutally attacked before being rescued by a powerful new friend, whose family takes her in and prepares her for the unimaginable life she must now embrace. Clues soon emerge that Emily may not be entirely human, and her physical transformation awakens goddess-like powers that her new family cannot begin to explain. Dealing with her human first love, the not-so-platonic relationship with her coven “sister” and her new supe sort-of-boyfriend further complicates matters. Not to mention being secretly hunted by the psychopaths who attacked her. And as the only known offspring of a once all-powerful race, the climactic battle is only the beginning of her journey, one that ends with her leading a war against all humankind.


  1. Congratulations CM! I am really looking forwarding to reading it! (and all the ones to follow!)

    1. Thanks, Craig! As one of my early test readers, who also took the time to provide constructive, organized, detailed feedback, you played a huge role in getting me to where I am today. I owe you bigtime.
