What’s it all about? And why would anyone want to read it? Well, let me try to explain without losing your interest too quickly. Basically, it’s all about me. Shameless self-promotion: of my writing, of my novels:
Where Are the Cocoa Puffs? and Reis's Pieces, of my amazing ability to come up with clever captions on photos of my travels . . . And also, a blatant representation of my stupidity when it comes to spelling, editing, and computer-type stuff.

My debut novel:
Where are the Cocoa Puffs?: A Family's Journey Through Bipolar Disorder was released in September of 2010. My second novel: Reis's Pieces: Love, Loss, and Schizophrenia, was released May, 2012!

Mental illness can take your whole world away from you. "Reis's Pieces: Love, Loss, and Schizophrenia" is a novel surrounding mental illness. Professor Reis Welling had everything he thought he could want, until the world starts telling him how it really feels, or so his mind feels. A diagnosis of schizophrenia seems crushing, and normalcy seems impossible. A novel of the road to wellness as a schizophrenic, "Reis's Pieces" is a strong and much recommended addition to any literary fiction collection.
