Home page:


I have been in the publishing business for 30 years. Besides working as managing editor for The (PA) Triboro Banner newspaper and as a reporter/feature writer for the Sun Coast (FL) Media Group, I also served as editor of the North Port (FL) News, the Winter Park (FL) Sun Herald, The Florida Banner and The (FL) Weekender. I was also the editor/publisher of The Lackawanna (PA) Independent, The Lower Valley (PA) Beacon, and owner of Independent Publishing Company which published Yesterday’s Magazette, New Writer’s magazine and Writer’s Guidelines and News. IPC also printed many small press books, magazines and newsletters for others.
I am now “semi-retired” and living in Sarasota, Florida with my wife, Carrillee, and Maggie, our cat, who is an astute and demanding critic of all my work. Since selling my business in 2000, I have written four novels--”Dada”, “1959” "Naked Lies" and "Dead Man's Hand" --and have started on two more. In addition, I contribute short stories and articles to various markets. My writing credits include Catholic Digest, War Cry Magazine, Opheliations, Writer’s Digest, St. Pete Times,Vignettes, and many other magazines and newspapers.
