He now lives in an empty nest in the great northwest with his trophy wife and an array of four-legged friends.
Who are your favorite authors?
My current favorite author is Mike Connelly. The longevity award goes to none other than Joseph Wambaugh, whom I've read for thirty-five years. Elmore Leonard is one of my all-time favorites, as he is the king of dialogue. I enjoy some of Stephen King's books and appreciate all of his writing. There are many more, but those are the heavy hitters in my genre.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life inspires me to get out of bed each day. We homicide detectives had a creed: Every day above ground is a good day. The fact that no day is guaranteed never escapes me, and I am thankful for each I am granted. Having said that, I love coffee and writing in the morning right after the critters are fed. Especially on cold winter days.
