Writing has been my passion since boyhood. It was nourished at Wabash College, an all-male liberal arts college in Indiana. While earning a BA degree in English, I wrote short stories and satiric articles for the literary and humor magazines. Following a three-year hitch in the Army Security Agency on the East/West German border, I embarked on a long career as a First V.P. with a major investment firm in Chicago, where I wrote and announced market reports on TV and radio. Although show biz was both fun and profitable, a bigger high came from the publications of my short stories and novels and options on my screenplays. One screenplay, THE LAZARUS CONSPIRACIES (Savant 2013), was the genesis for my recent novel, which won a major award at the Pacific Rim Book Festival in Hollywood. This was followed by my latest mystery/thriller, THE GUMSHOE (Savant 2017) and COMIC CRUSADERS (Aignos 2019). I am currently putting the finishing touches to RETRIBUTION, a sequel to THE LAZARUS CONSPIRACIES, and dwelling on a plot line for a sequel to GUMSHOE. The passion continues!
