ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in Havana Cuba, Ed now lives in Coral Springs Florida. His experience as an auditor has spanned over 20 years. He has conducted numerous audits and fraud investigations of many types of companies, in many industries, in several countries. He audited banks during the commercial loan failures of the seventies and now he has had a ringside seat during the mortgage industry’s recent debacle, leading to the current mass unbridled foreclosures.
His profession requires him to relate to individuals at all levels of the hierarchy. “The people one meets during these encounters run the gamut of human personalities. The combinations and permutations of physical, emotional, and mental characteristics of these individuals provide a never ending pallet of characters."
His work requires a thorough knowledge of each business’ operating processes and the economic and financial environment in which they flourish or fail. He has traveled to many international locations and has dealt with all kinds of financial situations, providing a myriad of experiences, from which Ed has drawn on for inspiration for his stories. You can find Ed’s published essays “Tell It like It Is,” and “The
C-level Auditor” on the internet. He has created numerous “what if” scenarios, and has devised plans identifying the existence of fraud. It turns out that this same process has proven to be very suitable and adaptable to fiction writing.
