About Me:
Some say I look like a first-cousin to a cat named Frankenstein--but I dunno. What I can say about me is that I am a husband, father, and grandfather and both a fan of the mystery/detective genre, (fan for about 45 years) and an author as well. I am fifty-nine years old but the mind is trying to convince the body it is significantly younger (and the body isn't listening!) I have novel out called Murderous Passions. It's the first of a series and I'm feverishly working on the next one as we speak.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer

Raymond Chandler, Lindsey Davis, Ed McBain, Dashiell Hammett, Tony Hillerman, John Maddox Roberts, Erle Stanley Gardner, Robert Ludlum, Erich Von Lustbader, Rex Stout, Louis L'Amour, Daniel Boorstein, Will and Ariel Durant, Earl Derr Biggers, Agatha Christie and lots and lots more.

    It's like when people say 'all philosophy is footnotes to Plato.' It's an exaggeration, of course. But the idea is that Plato created the basic template and everyone else kind of works within that template.

    Why would anyone write? To leave their unique stamp on the template.

    Yeah, I know...rebel without a cause! Just wanted to say I enjoyed your stories posted on TKnCs recently (especially No One to Depend On). I can't post comments on that site 'cause you need a website/blog (Rebel without an URL?). Anyway, wanted to drop a line... Tanis

    It's tough isn't it?  I've got one of the best agents in the country, yet can't quite seem to clinch the deal...
