I was raised in Brooklyn and spent most of my adult life in Chicago. I invent the characters in my writing by drawing upon my childhood memories and flair for the dramatic. With a writing style that is real and never sugar coated or phony, I endeavor to entertain my readers. Finally realizing my longtime dream, my debut novel Salty and The Serpent is set to release after taking six years to create. I am the proud father of a Marine Corps veteran and have two beautiful grandchildren. I’m currently retired and living in Florida.
