A veteran writer since 1979, I have sold over 150 short stories and magazine articles, most of them mystery fiction and thoroughbred racing historicals.

I have 9 published novels(to 12/2006)with 1 more in the can. Hunting Evil will be published spring 2007 by Hilliard & Harris.

My work has appeared in such semi-prozines as P.I. Magazine, Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine, Hardboiled, White Knuckles, Into the Darkness, and many others.

I am currently working on a series of detective novels, featuring Lou Corso and a bevy of intriguing women and a few psychopathic killers.
