I wasn’t born to be a writer. There was no Eureka moment or great epiphany that announced my entry into writer-hood. My life has been shaped by a series of unique experiences that ¬¬¬¬have helped to develop my creativity, stamina and wit along with a deep passion to spin cutting-edge and believable stories.
• I worked for the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee during President Nixon’s impeachment proceeding alongside Hillary Rodham.
• I was a law school classmate of serial killer Ted Bundy.
• I played tennis with Robert Redford – twice!
• I completed a solo swim of the length of Lake Tahoe (21 miles) and a solo Bridge-to Bridge-to-Bridge (31 miles) swim in San Francisco Bay.
• I sat across the table from Arnold Palmer while negotiat

There will be a host of other contributors and different ideas in this project that we'll be ready to announce in about 60 days. This is going to be the most exciting project I've worked on.(less)

Now this is a real thriller with interwoven plots and enough edginess to keep you turning the pages. The two main characters, Valda Kramer and Jack Lauder, come from entirely different molds and I never would have suspected those two to get together. ...more

Jim Jarmusch
“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to."

[MovieMaker Magazine #53 - Winter, January 22, 2004 ]”
