The program will start with a biography of Poe, followed by some fun History and Poe facts, the Literary Devices used in Annabel Lee, a group reading of the poem, followed by a general discussion on the poem. Also I will read selected verses from my own collection of love poems, The Man with the Ice Blue Eyes. Join in!

Looking for a Valentine’s Day gift? What better than a Romantic Historical Fiction Novel like “My name is John Singer,” or Romantic Poetry like “The Man with the Ice Blue Eyes!” Stop by the Lord & Taylor at WestFarms Mall on Tuesday February 14 from 2:00-6:00 and shop books for your Valentine!
SAVE THE DATE! I will be at the Barnes & Noble in Bel Air, MD on April 23, 2017 from 11:00-1:30!! Discussion on and book signing on my romantic historical fictional account of John Wilkes Booth “My Name is John Singer!” The boyhood home of John Wilkes Booth, Tudor Hall is located within the Town of Bel Air. Although John Singer is a fictional account of Booth escaping his end at Garrett’s Barn, and hiding in plain sight…the references of Tudor Hall are not only accurate in their physical description but accurate as well as to some accounts of John Wilkes Booth formative years. I can’t wait to go!!!
Check out local article from the Valley Press on my Poetry “The Man with the Ice Blue Eyes” and the inspiration from Edgar Allan Poe and a lifetime love of Annabel Lee.
Exciting news on My Name is John Singer! Eric Swanson, author of book and lyrics on EDWIN, The Story of Edwin Booth, and NYT best selling co-author of “The Joy of Living,” has kindly endorsed John Singer! See below from Eric and look for it on the back and inside front cover in November 2016!!!
My Name is John Singer is a fascinating novel, rich in historical detail and nuances of character, time, and place. By turns tender, thrilling, and suspenseful, it is a beguiling work of historical fiction and a thoughtful exploration of love and redemption.

and co-author of the New York Times bestseller, The Joy of Living.
Congratulations to Great Circle Productions on EDWIN. Where history comes to life!
And thank you for all your support as well. It’s my love of history that drives me, and my
love of creating that which was not there before, that compels me.
