Staying Alive.

The world, and our lives, are changing. The new normal, wearing masks and gloves to the grocery store, sheltering in place, and avoiding others so we don’t spread the virus, makes life complicated, but necessary to save lives. We as humans can adapt. (I may never go back to a public gym unless we all get vaccines.)

Despite erratic weather, global warming, civil unrest, profound political challenges, rising unemployment, global hackers, rising healthcare costs, . . . we still have families to raise. Sometimes I wish we could all escape into a parallel universe where life is calmer, safer, and more loving . . .but we can’t.

We have to make the best of what we have here and now . As human beings, we need to reach out to our family, friends, leaders, and businesses to work together and improve health and safety within our cities, communities, places of worship, and schools. I pray for all of us, but especially for our children’s future.

Please make your vote count this fall.

Thanks, Jeff

I love writing science fiction and fantasy novels. My characters feel real, and the more you learn about them, the more interesting and entertaining they become. As they slay their metaphorical dragons, I challenge them with trials, conflict, and tension. My stories are your stories and are woven with experience. We might find ourselves fighting with a magic wand or a laser pistol, but we'll discover love, loss, fear, or hope along the way. Each and every one of us will be tested and the final outcome holds a surprise. I enjoy living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and watching the sunset. I've published three science fiction novels, and I'm currently working on my fourth novel--a fantasy set in medieval Europe. I wish you all well and hope you enjoy reading. Jeff
