Dental Society Fundraiser

My daughter and cover designer along with myself will be attending the Vancouver and District Dental Society Midwinter Convention at the Hotel Vancouver on December 2. We will be introducing the novel, “Teeth, Lies & Consequences” to dentists and their staff from the lower mainland and other parts of the province. This will be our first big push to raise money and enlist volunteers for the Semiahmoo Dental Outreach Society. $5.00 from the sale of each book will going towards the tremendous humanitarian work being done by Doctor Ken Stones and his merry band of volunteers who are presently taking care of children in the Philippines.

Five Star Amazon Reviews of Teeth, Lies & Consequences

I’m gratified by the first two five star reviews on and that both readers found the depth of emotion and meaning that I tried to express about religious strife and unconditional love. I’ll be looking forward to more feedback in the coming weeks.

Book Distribution

I am pleased to announce that both my new novel, Teeth, Lies & Consequences as well as Blue Saltwater will be distributed to most libraries and major bookstores by Red Tuque Books Inc. which is operated by fellow author, David Korinetz from Penticton, BC. See for more information on their catalogue.

The Third Option: Teeth, Lies & Consequences

In the closing pages of T L & C as Frankie and Friedrich board a plane for Los Angeles, Frankie shares his plan of returning to Israel to open dental clinics in Israeli Muslim Communities and in the “third world” communities of new Jewish immigrants from Muslim countries.

His dream is to promote a third option of hope and reconciliation to the dominating themes of hate and revenge that govern the lives of both Jewish and Palestinian citizens in Israel.

Promoting Hope and Reconciliation may seem like a worn out cliché but in the Middle East these days it is a concept that is sadly lacking on both sides of the conflict. Maybe this story, in its own small way, can help to change that.

Teeth, Lies & Consequences: Title Launch

It’s been about two weeks since this new title saw the light of day on and Kindle. Now it is also available on making it easier to access for Canadian readers. I am also working with David Korinetz, of Red Tuque Books Inc. which will be distributing the book to bookstores and libraries in Canada and the US. Hopefully by the end of the year all channels will be up and running.
