About this author

I've spent my life reading and always wanted to write. About ten years ago, I started One Night in Bridgeport, a legal thriller. Bridgeport is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon, and in all other e-reader formats on Smashwords.

Writing that story opened the door to writing. I've since written about 45 short stories -- with two stories published by The First Line and two at

Weed Therapy, about a man's journey to find happiness, is my next novel ready to be published. And, after that, I have three partially completed novels ready for my attention.

In my other life, I'm an attorney. I have two teenagers about ready to start college. I cook, bake, garden ... and read.

You can keep up with my writing news...more
