Published Reviews

"Thought-provoking and funny."

The Press Democrat

"Sleeping Indoors challenges perceptions and stereotypes about the homeless and raises intriguing questions about what really constitutes a 'good life.'"

The River

"None of Sleeping Indoors plays out the way you'll expect it to, which will not only keep you guessing, it'll keep you entertained, and engaged."

Connect Savannah

"...showcases the rifts between the haves and the have-nots with humor and insight."

The Florida Keys Guide

"Sleeping Indoors thinks outside the box...you'll likely be debating this one on the trip home."

Cape Cod Times

"Christmas spirit resonates throughout this funny and touching story."
