Published 1984

"Bittersweet is the second book I wrote, the first never got published.  My boss (I was working as an executive assistant for Morgan Stanley in New York at the time) dubbed it a neo-gothic lesbian western.  This is a very narrow genre.  If you're a new writer I wouldn't suggest this venue. Because it's one of my earliest works, Bittersweet contains a lot of the stories I heard growing up near the Smoke Creek Desert and remains one of my favorite books." 


"This is the jacket photo that I submitted. It was rejected as too gay. Can anybody be too gay?"
