After earning a degree in Theatre from Florida School of the Arts, I braved the sidewalks of New York City to experience the world of acting. Finding it an inhospitable world and needing to eat on a regular basis, I then retreated to the Appalachians to rethink my damn life. Having grown weary of snow, black ice and homemade shine, my path led me back to Florida where I earned a Bachelor of Arts from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. I eventually landed a gig for the Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission as Events Developer, Writer, and Producer of the Student Showcase of Films, Florida’s largest student film competition and awards show. I now live a happy life in Stuart, Florida, with my true love and talented artist Alicia, our cats Simon and Weezy, and my magical daughter Emma. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Florida Writer's Association, as well as being a member of the Bloody Pens Writers Group and the South Florida Writer’s Association.
I happily signed on with Darkwater Syndicate in Miami, which delivered the return of my first novel, A Moon Called Sun, rising like a Phoenix from the ashes of my former publisher. My second book, The Slant Six, is a space opera thriller in the same vein as Star Wars and The Fifth Element. It ingeniously mixes sci-fi with intense chase scenes and a sprinkling of NASCAR-style race action. The Slant Six began as a wink-and-a-nod to Duel, the ‘71 made-for-tv classic, and the timeless melodrama Death of Salesman, but set in outer space! The result is an exhilarating thrill ride through the galaxy gestated in literary whimsy, quirky humor and gritty realism. The Slant Six has received critical acclaim as well as praise from best-selling Sci-Fi/Fantasy author, Piers Anthony--a huge influence on my writing! Whatever, the hook is good and you'll like it.
Forever yours in ink and friendship,
My personal kryptonite, my Supergirl...my Emma
You're my boy, Blue!
