I was born, appropriately enough, on April Fools’ Day, 1950, and brought up in Baldwin, Long Island, graduating from high school in 1968. I started at SUNY Binghamton (Harpur College) that year and ultimately graduated in 1974 (after a two year hiatus in Canada) with a degree in Philosophy.
From early on I discovered I had the ability to make people laugh as well as certain musical proclivities. During college, I worked as a musician/comedian, and despite my degree in Philosophy (or perhaps because of it), after graduating I moved to Boston and continued working at folk and comedy clubs around the Northeast. I got married and needing to make more than the substance living my artistic ventures were providing, got into sales (office equipment) because that’s what my father did. As it turned out I was pretty good at it and prospered in the booming Massachusetts economy of the time. Unfortunately, my marriage did not prosper as well, and I got divorced and began the quest that is the central focus of In Search of the Golden Shiksa. When the Massachusetts economy died in the early 1990’s, I moved to Florida with my new wife, and unable to make a living down there, decided to go to law school (Northeastern University) from which I graduated in 1996. Unemployable, I was forced to go into practice by myself and discovered an entrepreneur hidden within, evolving a fairly successful Elder Law practice in the last fifteen years with two offices and a monthly radio show. I presently live in Canton, Massachusetts (south of Boston) with my wife, Donna, two sons, Jake (17) and Ben (13), as well as the three and a half cats.
Although primarily concerned with career and family pursuits, the music, comedy and writing have never left me. Two unexpected bursts of creative flow (at age twenty for the music and my early forties for the books) where songs and stories seemed to channel through me (I’m not kidding), left me with a body of work I am trying to advance on a commercial level. In the spare time that I’ve had over the last ten years, I’ve worked on polishing the manuscripts to make them attractive enough for an agent and publisher (and ultimately for a video format) to pursue. It is with that effort and goal that I approach you with this project and hope you find it useful and enjoyable. Thanks.

Better than Stephen King's 11/22/63. Five stars.
I am somewhat new to the Kennedy assassination literature, but being a fiction reader, wanted to avoid the seemingly endless non-fiction tomes associated with it while still getting a historical background. I was looking for something with a heartbeat which is why I purchased Stephen King's book which I thought was very good, if a bit too long and a bit too pricey.
After reading the King book, I wanted to get a little more perspective and stumbled upon this book and wow, talk about something with a heartbeat! I thought the original premise was fantastic (somebody actually witnessing the killer as he shoots Kennedy) and the story sucked me right in and kept me riveted till the end - couldn't put it down, thank god I wasn't working that day.
Bottom Line, I thought this book was a better book than the King book, more engrossing, a heck of a lot shorter and a heck of a lot cheaper, and still providing a good historical background to the assassination. Highly recommended
