Author and Fine Art



In conjunction with innovative designing, my favorite mental stimulus is writing.  A few years back I began researching and writing a political suspense novel, titled “More Than a Lifetime”, which I self-published.  Following that limited success I was hooked and began its sequel, titled “The Code”.

Both novels are thrillers, with more than enough reality to keep the reader engaged, challenged and emotionally matted with the characters and the pensive drama of honor verses evil.

Early in 2018 I began the painstaking process of sending out manuscripts and query letters.  Page Publishing, a New York Publishing Company, sent me a contract to publish, advertise and market both novels.  We are concluding the editing process, moving into page layout, then cover selection.

“More Than a Lifetime” is in its final stage of cover selection, then onto the marketing program, and should be released for publication Spring, 2019. “The Code just finished the editing process and is in page design, then cover selection and then marketing. We anticipate its publication release mid-summer 2019. I have finished researching me new work, titled, “For Love of Country”, the third in this sequel series, just wrapping up chapter nine. I will keep you apprised on the website of our progress. Thank you and keep reading.


Ken and Nancy Rutledge, love beautiful art. While on vacation some years ago they began purchasing (fine ‘affordable’ art) and opened a company called ESPIAL (Purveyors of Fine Art).  

Nancy operates the business, buying and selling excellent (affordable) art, both framed and unframed, online.  Each comes with an appraisal and letter of authenticity.  The following are some of the pieces Nancy is offering that will adorn your home for decades to come.
