About the Author

When I was 10 years old, I used to spend Christmas vacation with my grandmother. One late winter's night, she gave me a copy of The Hound of the Baskervilles about Sherlock Holmes. I loved it and was hooked on mysteries. Today, I've written six novels and a collection of my short stories.

I worked as a prosecutor and defense lawyer for 30+ years so some of my stories take place in the courtroom and I give people a "behind the scenes" look at the funny, tragic, and mysterious things that occur there. I also have a series of books about an investigator who travels the world solving mysteries.

When I read I like to learn factual things. So, in my books I do a ton of research that I put into the stories to educate readers also.

I have been married for 38 years, have two adult children, and play the saxophone in a jazz group and a rock band.
