I am a native New Yorker, living in Mt. Vernon NY.

During most of my adult life I always thought about writing a novel. Until finally in 2010 when the publication of my debut novel, Mourning Doves After The Fire, put my procrastination to an end.

My second novel, Kingdom's End, a dramatic fable about city dwelling rats, was published in 2016.

I am currently at work on my third novel.

This non-fiction novel as it has been called is superb in its research and Capote's gifted prose makes this his greatest work. Highly recommended.
