Daniel Sconce. I read voraciously. My most satisfying reads are crime and suspense. A tricky romantic relationship is usually involved. My novel, “Normal Life”, was my first effort to add my voice to that genre.  My titles in novels as well as poetry are available through Amazon. I have fifteen copies of “Normal Life” available for purchase. Send your $10.00 check (include your mailing address) to Daniel Sconce, 300 So. Elliott Ave. #26, Wenatchee, WA 98801 and I’ll send you a copy via USPS.
