Whenever I write, I try to imagine what the reader will expect and then do the exact opposite. I am always striving to create a story no one has seen before, to stand far off the beaten path...well outside the box. Beneath my stories there are debates that look at old issues from fresh perspectives. Realistic characters with all the good and bad that entails. Settings that take you someplace else and tease your imagination. I want the reader to walk away thinking, "Well, that was new." ...in a good way.

- Down & Out in Manhattan a Financial Thriller
on Oct. 12, 2012
This reminded me of a cross between classic noir and the movie, Wallstreet. To me, it had a gritty feel of a 60s pulp even though it's set in the late 80s, but it was a contrast that worked very well for the story. Through the ups and downs of Jack's situation, you get to see life from many different angles, and yet they all seem extremely realistic, like the author had lived through this himself. The energy and tension remain pretty high paced throughout so I never found my interest waning. It was one of those books where you keep saying to yourself 'Just one more chapter' until you've reached the end of it. Loved it.
