So, I write crime fiction, and actually make a living at it. My psychological thriller Her Perfect Secret won the Next Generation Indie Award for "Best Suspense" in 2022.







Before novels, I worked in film and television, on sets and in the studios. Now I focus on my family and our small homestead in upstate New York. When not writing suspense, I'm gardening, cooking, or yelling at my three kids (lovingly).

Mostly, I worry about climate change. Sometimes I write about addiction, since I'm a recovering addict.

But I also do a mean Arnold Schwarzenegger, and there's plenty of laughter in my life.

I'm a fortunate man! And I hope to pay that forward.
