A historical epic told on an intimate scale, Drowning in the East River tells the story of David Freeman. A battle scared World War I veteran, he’s blindsided by the sudden and unexpected death of his beloved wife. Finding himself alone in New York City with a two-year-old son he has no idea how to raise, David embarks a journey of growth and internal repentance, which takes him through Havana and finally to a tumultuous and battle weary Dublin in the 1920s.

About the Author
My earliest memories revolve around cinema. One of my favorite films during formative years was Hatari, the 1962 John Wayne action film about a group of hunters and trackers catching animals for zoos in Africa. Even in middle school, when I spent my off-school hours trying to direct and choreograph an amateur (read: backyard) version of Singing in the Rain, I was a film student in training. I’ve spent years watching everything I can, eventually translating my passion into a film history masters degree. Essentially, I’ve spent more years then I care to admit, translating my fangirlish tendencies into a writing career, ranging from the blog enteries about my ever changing and evolving passions, to the novels and screenplays I keep developing and marketing. I’m based out of Denver, where I live with my family and three four-legged children. Please enjoy!
