Read my new novel

William Koval is an accomplished physician, head of pathology at Seattle’s Northwest Hospital. A pragmatist with little faith in humanity, he prefers to dwell in the eerily beautiful microscopic world, where he is master of his domain. On the surface, William appears to be in complete control, but is he?
On the heels of his wife’s sudden, violent death, he returns to work prematurely, finding solace in his sanctuary, the hospital lab. Yet he continues to yearn for his departed wife, Kathleen, whose idealized presence remains vivid in his mind. Before her death, she’d booked them a dream vacation—a historical walking tour of England. Now, three years later, he makes an impulsive decision to take the voyage in her honor.
William’s doubts surface when he meets his tour guide, the enigmatic Aaron Black, an Irishman, whose historical knowledge of England appears spotty at best. The tour group roster includes an international cast of characters— a quirky retired couple from Australia, a sexy French mother-daughter duo, a lively gay couple from North Carolina, and a single woman, Annie Logan, from his hometown area.
William is inexplicably drawn to Annie and wandering through the pastoral English countryside, their mutual attraction grows. Following a tender intimate encounter, the story unfolds to reveal an unspeakable horror—a shocking connection between them. Their chance meeting compels William to examine the larger questions, the nature of fate and spirituality, life and death.
Only when William confronts his past, including his troubled marriage, will he find a way to rejoin the living, to move forward, and perhaps love again. The real journey, he discovers, lies within.
