I was born in a one room log cabin I built myself. The quaint, thatch-roofed dwelling was nestled in the rolling hills of Concord, Massachusetts, the birth place of Henry David Thoreau. Come to think of it, my middle name is Henry David Thoreau. I've traveled Europe extensively, mostly on foot. My favorite color is tweed with leather elbow patches. My hobbies include art restoration, spelunking, and collecting extremely rare and expensive musical instruments. I likewise enjoy lying through my teeth. In the trade, we refer to that as literary license. And now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag, here is the real story.
I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the State University of New York at Oswego. I'm quite sure they don't remember me. I despise tweed. I wouldn't know a Rembrandt from a Renoir. I love Rock and Roll and Electric Blues. I'm also fond of football, beer and potato chips. My main hobbies are reading and writing and swearing at the television when the Minnesota Vikings lose. I do a lot of swearing.
Once upon a time, my professional aspirations had me returning to the classroom as a professor of English Literature. Imagine my surprise when, instead, I somehow ended up as a night-time DJ at a Country music radio station. Did I mention I like Rock and Electric Blues? What did I know from Country? Still, I bounded up the corporate ladder and, several years later, had a big corner office with a window and a breathtaking view of the crib, changing table and Diaper Genie. Yes, I'd become a stay-at-home-dad. Don’t get me wrong. The experience was incredibly rewarding, but I knew I needed some form of intellectual stimulation or I’d be transferred to a room with rubber wallpaper. A writing career was born.
My debut novel, an auto racing themed thriller titled "A Shot at Redemption," was released in early 2014. I won’t tell you how embarrassingly long it took to complete. "Parlor City Paradise" hit the virtual bookshelves in the spring of 2016. Release No. 3 represented a major departure from mysteries, thrillers and fiction in general. It's a football-themed cookbook called "21 Sundays of Fantastic Football Food: Celebrating the Foods and Follies of Professional Football." I guarantee it's my most delicious effort to date. A third novel, tentatively titled "Blind Switch," is currently in the works. More on that in the coming months....

For Joy, things couldn’t have been going much better. She was already living her dream as the lead guitarist in a rock and roll band when a mysterious, twinkle-eyed, rosy-cheeked stranger came along and swept her off her feet. She believed she’d found her one true love, and that’s when she suddenly ran afoul of some small yet surprisingly fierce and overzealous adversaries.
