    Works

    • Plotto: The Classic Plot Suggestion Tool for Writers of Creative Fiction
    • Have you struggled to expand your initial idea into a complete story? Plotting can be frustrating work! What if there were a tool for this very problem, so you could navigate these uncharted waters as quickly as possible? A tool that starts with what you have (a situation, perhaps, or a group of characters) and sets you on the road to new possibilities? Plotto does all this.
    • The fabulous showman;: The life and times of P. T. Barnum
    • This book is a fast-paced, carefully documented, and rich biography of Barnum, the greatest showman of all time, the American from Bethel, Connecticut, whose eccentricities and oblique, cynical approach to humanity transformed entertainment into a big, incredibly profitable business.
    • The Fabulous Showman : A Biography of P. T. Barnum

    • The Three Sirens
    • Even more provocative than The Seven Minutes, this stunning novel reveals the experiences of an American anthropological team - men and women from varied backgrounds, of different ages, driven by their own secret desires - on a Polynesian paradise called The Three Sirens.
