Just me

Me in nine words.


A guy addicted to pushing words around on paper.  

Just released!


When Connie Silverstein agreed to babysit her friend’s four-year-old son, she never dreamed it would end in disaster. Now the usually dependable medical student finds herself responsible for the boy’s near drowning and subsequent brain damage.

Connie is desperate to help the boy recover, but the grieving mother no longer trusts her. Consumed by guilt, Connie attempts to deaden her pain with alcohol. But there’s not enough vodka in the world to right the wrong she’s done. Family and friends attempt to intervene in her downward spiral, assuring her that tragic accidents can happen to anyone.

But only Connie knows the terrible secret that what happened was no accident.

How I write


Suspense is the thing. Whether serious or humorous I aim to keep you on the edge of your seat or falling off it laughing. A reviewer recently compared my writing to Elmore Leonard's.  I took that as a great compliment  I'm not big on writing profanity, though.  I don't like reading it, so I don't write it. Same goes for explicit  sex scenes. They're just not my thing.  Oh, some of my characters are undoubtedly sexy  but they're never raunchy. 

My latest humorous thriller is Dupes-A-Navy. It's the sequel to Oops-A-Navy.  It's about two wacky Navy SEALs. Check it out by clicking the FUNNY THRILLERS tab up top. Oops-A-Navy is only 99 cents. 

I write a  newsletter, with free flash fiction stories (click the FLASH FICTION tab, yes at the top, to get an idea of what they're like—and be sure to catch the latest one: "The Fear Walk"),  previews and other exclusive content. Sign up below in the Newsletter Signup box.  

And don't miss my blog! Click on BLOG at the top. Latest offering is "My car is trying to kill me!" (It's a true story.) 

Check out some of the Amazon reviews for Oops-A-Navy.
