FIREFALL, his second novel, was released in 2013 by Rebel ePublishers. Coffee Time Romance calls it “a taut, compelling mystery with a complex, well-drawn main character.”

POISONED TEARS is his third novel in English and has already garnered positive reviews and recommendations. Jon Land calls it “a splendid piece of crime noir,” while Douglas Preston says it’s a first class roller-coaster ride.

He’s a member of The Crime Writers Association, the Short Fiction Writers Guild and the International Thriller Writers where he also serves as the Thriller Roundtable Coordinator and contributor editor their official e-zine The Big Thrill.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I'm trying to come up with something inspirational here, but all I'm getting is the harsh reality of an alarm clock placed out of reach from the bed. It doesn't even have a Snooze button.
I am not a wake up person, quite the opposite, I go to be inspired; it can be a good business day, a nicely rounded chapter, or a scene with sizzling dialogue and sticks a grin on my face all the way to my bed and carries me over the next day.
Who are your favorite authors?
There are three or four authors that influenced me. The first one, Mario Puzo. The Godfather was the first book, aside from the bible, that I've read more than once.
During the 90's I became a fan of three power players:
1) Ken Follett, got hooked on Triple, but it was The Pillars of the Earth that made me a real believer.
2) Tom Clancy, and the early Jack Ryan adventures that defined the Techno-thriller sub-genre. My favorite of those early books is Patriot Games, followed closely by Executive Orders.
3) Clive Cussler, Dirk Pitt adventures were above and beyond. My first one was Deep Six, and it was great.

So given the above, is it really a wonder why I write thrillers now?
