Georgia Writers Association Author of the Year 2008


The New York Post says Paradise Dogs is "required reading"

Man Martin helped me see my book from another perspective. He helped me find holes in the plot, develop characters, and zoom in on the chronology of events, all of which were pieces of the puzzle that had been stumping me for some time... Just what I needed!
