From a laptop sitting before local Bay Shore baristas serving customers, I am working on my next book project. Yes, it is very much unfinished. To note, if I do finish it and it gets published, it will be my first picture-less book. The story is a coming-of-age novella set in a fictional city of Nassau County, New York. My first book is a collection of social commentary cartoons and the second is an illustrated memoir of my pursuits as a freelance artist. Both publications have been discussed in previous postings.
