Welcome to my Website!
Several years ago I created a character named Hassie Calhoun and am telling her story through a trilogy that spans 53 years of her life (age 17-70). We begin in Las Vegas in the time of the Rat Pack and the Sands Hotel, spend time in London and end in NYC 10 years after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Hassie is a complicated and frustrating character that leaves readers scratching their heads and torn with whether to love her or “get inside the book and slap her.” Like many fictional protagonists, Hassie and the characters that make up her world are composites of people I know or have known throughout my life. Her story has roots in my own struggles and ultimately reflects my love of music and strong ties to an international arena.
Join me as I complete Hassie’s journey and share a little of my life along the way.
