I have lived in many of the countries I write about, but nevertheless consider myself both a native New Yorker and Floridian. I am a professor at Berkeley College New York, and lecturer at Florida Atlantic University, specializing in International business. Formally, I was an in house consultant to a mufti-national conglomerate, and prior to that the owner of London Fog Children’s Wear. Many aspects of Silk, I have drawn from historical fact.

An American family establishes a textile business in Shanghai in the year 1933. Japan has amassed its forces on the Manchurian border in preparation for the invasion of China. The story spans five decades of relatively accurate history - spiced with murder, betrayal, revenge, and the thread of enduring love.
