By day I am a peddler of petroleum products, navigating a Glengarry Glen Ross landscape of cutthroat sales. By night I assume the identity of novelist and child-wrangler. With an undergraduate degree in economics from Florida State University and graduate work in Florida Studies at USF St. Pete, I spent 12 years in non-profit fundraising. I now use that experience to volunteer for causes care about. My first published novel The Grandfather Clock is available on amazon.com. Its sequel, The Napoleon Bloom, will be out in late 2016. I blog at welloiledwriter.wordpress.com and for Creative Loafing Tampa.
