A native of the Northeast U.S., I had a varied career until I entered the newspaper business, which led to a 35-year career in newspapers. I wrote my first novel at 22, and my second at 25, which was the first version of of "A Game Called Dead," now the second book on the Frank Nagler Mystery series.
The Frank Nagler Mysteries are 2014's "The Swamps of Jersey," and 2016's," "A Game Called Dead."
"Dead" was named a Runner-up in the 2016 Shelf Unbound Indie Book Contest.
The third Nagler story, "The Weight of Living," will be published in April 2017.
The Nagler stories are about the efforts of Detective Frank Nagler of Ironton, N.J. as he fights crime and his own lonely heart in an industrial city that has fallen on hard times.
The stories are atmospheric and character driven.
