Author of noir novels Miami Purity, Iguana Love, Voluntary Madness, Sky Blues, and Cruel Poetry. I teach writing at Broward Community College in Hollywood, Florida. Skydiving, SCUBA, and other adventurous hobbies and travels often act as background and supply plot for my novels and stories. I've just been nominated for an MWA Edgar Award for Cruel Poetry in the Best Paperback Original category, 2008. Yippee!
