A native New Yorker, I now live in Southern California. I am retired. In addition to writing I enjoy drawing (primarily pen and ink) and photography. Saglek is my first full length novel. I began writing it while I still had vivid memories of that year on the rock. That was a long time ago. It stands alone as the single manuscript which I felt compelled to write. It began as a cathartic process to release those demons that haunted me after my time there. But it became a labor of love and drew me into it such that I can now relive it with more fond memories. As a person grows older there are so many experiences of life we leave behind only to recall with the sadly unattainable desire to revisit. How pleasantly ironic that in this work I have regained the vividness by which I can revisit that event which had such an enormous impact on me..
I write not only to entertain a reader, but to engage the reader in thought. I want you to feel a personal emotional attachment to the work. To that regard, my chosen genre is horror. There is a line in Saglek which states that whenever a person is confronted with the unknown, they may challenge it or avoid it. But the one thing they cannot do is ignore it. And in it they will see a reflection of themselves. That is my goal. I want to present readers with an experience that will lead them to see themselves in it.
