A former bouncer, bodyguard, and Bronxite, Hugh now lives a relatively calm suburban life. In his younger days he worked in some of New York City's most renowned clubs as well as working with some of the biggest rock bands in the world. He credits that misspent youth with preparing him well for the writing life.

Hugh has written for as long as he can remember and enjoys writing across diverse genres. He's currently working on multiple projects including an anthology of short stories, Full Figured, the follow up to Willows, Cul-de-sac and his first crime novel, a story about Bronx gangsters, a very bad man looking for redemption and a world famous rapper with a secret.

No Greater Agony

I think Dr. Angelou might have been speaking from experience when she said this.


Even as a small child, I knew I wanted to write books, but I had no idea how it was done and (this was pre-pre-pre-Internet) had no access to anyone who might educate me. I held the stories inside me, my only outlet was telling stories about my fictional Canadian girlfriend.
