I could say my creative life began with an interest in drawing. After art school I worked for a time in animation at Walt Disney Studios. Later in New York, I made the rounds of magazine humor editors and sold cartoons. Now a full-time writer, I’ve published short stories, a book on quitting smoking titled, Butt BustersDefeating the Tobacco Habit... and a crime novel, The Patsy. Oak Tree Press has just published my latest, a crime novel titled New York Scramble. I’m currently writing a sequel. For many years now I’ve been an avid sailor, making a voyage to Mazatlan, Mexico on my 30-foot sloop. I’ve sailed on other boats to Hawaii and down the Atlantic from Connecticut to the Caribbean. These experiences will help me with two adventure novels I hope to complete. It’s taken me a while to realize it, but I’ve found that writing has proven to be most rewarding. I live in Morro Bay, CA and hope to be around long enough to finish what I’ve begun.
