Personal

I love to write and have been fortunate to achieve some success in most writing mediums. I am now committed to being a successful fiction writer having just completed the first book in my Deke Matthews Detective series, KILL ME ANOTHER DAY and have already started the second book, A PERFECT POISON - Anya in America. I am a gregarious, high energy, semi-handsome, somewhat modest, quick study and a man of my word. Currently single and with two grown children, my work is my life - with an occasional wine-tasting trip and San Francisco weekend with good company. I have been blessed to meet many wonderful people from all over the world. My most joyful writing experience was being a young playwright in New York. They were short plays in small theaters, but the producers, audience and crew treated me like royalty. I have had my share of rejection blues and painful writer’s blocks, but overall I have enjoyed the journey and look forward to whatever is down that “... road less traveled.” If you are looking for a Professional Wordsmith, let’s have a glass of good wine and talk about it.
