I've been waiting to tell you!

Big News!
I wanted to share with all of you a very special collaboration which I am a part of, in connection with my upcoming novel “Postcards from Goa”. The soundtrack for the book trailer is a very beautiful love ballad written, played, and sung by singer, songwriter Navin Kundra. “Main Ha Tere Naal” is a Punjabi song meaning I am with you in English. The sentiments expressed fit the story of “Postcards from Goa” perfectly.
I couldn’t be more honored or thrilled to have Navin’s exquisite creative work of art breathe life into what would have just been words and photos without it. I will be posting the trailer here in a few days for the world to see and hear.
“Postcards from Goa” won’t be out on until September 19, but you can get “Main Ha Tere Naal” on Navin’s recently released album, The Collection, along with 17 other songs, including several covers of popular songs in English with Navin’s signature Hindi mix added in.
I promise that if you’re not already a fan of Navin’s music, you will be after hearing it for the first time. I know, because that’s exactly what happened to me, without even understanding the lyrics. The power, and passion, which Navin infuses into each of his songs, is not only the quality which sets them apart from others in the same genre, but they also achieve the goal he has had since the very beginning of his career – “to touch people with my music.”
Get The Collection here –

My novel soon to be published is titled Postcards from Goa!

Here is the synopsis.

Goa, India 1945

India sought to reclaim her land from 400 years of Portuguese rule.

Amidst the turmoil, and hatred, a friendship is born between two people from opposing sides.

As the forbidden friendship deepens, could anything destroy the peace and love that they find in each other?

Nova Scotia, Canada 1998

Five decades later, and thousands of miles away, the story begins to unfold.

Will the curiosity to solve the mystery, be enough for one woman to travel to India to find the truth? 

Or is there more to the reason behind why she needs to know?
What do you think? Is it a story that interests you?

I'm a Published Author!

Finally, the day has come when I can say that I've become a published author. My new book is a novella entitled Tangible Dreams. Here are the details.

Tangible Dreams is about two people, Elizabeth Fitzgerald, a photographer for a travel magazine and Christian Dominguez, a skilled craftsman. They are different in so many ways, except for one thing - They both have the desire to be able to take charge of the situations they have been handed in life and out of them create their own tangible dreams.

You can get your copy on Amazon.
