Profile Information

Hometown:
Garden City, NY
About Me:
I worked as an Executive Editor at Entertainment Weekly for 11 years and (in two separate stints) at People magazine and people.com for 12 years. I often speak to young journalists and try to use myself as an example for inspiration—a guy who spent time in jail, rehab and a psych ward and somehow went on to become a successful editor at Time Inc. and managed to keep himself sane and alive. I’ve tried to reflect those experiences in my books.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Website:
http://authorcentral.amazon.com/gp/blog?ie=UTF8&%2AVersion%2A=1...
Books And Authors I Like:
Elmore Leonard, P.G. Wodehouse, David Mamet, Flannery O'Connor, Italo Calvino, Willy Shakespeare, William Faulkner, Italo Svevo, Richard Price, James Ellroy, Muriel Spark, Lee Child, Carlos Fuentes.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Dexter, True Blood, Homicide, The Third Man, Law & Order (all versions), Boardwalk Empire, Bored To Death, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Hung, Mad Men, Performance, 8 1/2, Chimes At Midnight, Rules Of The Game, Touch Of Evil, Little Murders, There Will Be Blood, Fargo, No Country For Old Men, all Marx Bros. movies from The Coconuts to A Night At The Opera (and nothing after that), most W.C. Fields movies.

THE SEVENTH COMPASS POINT OF DEATH THE LIT-CRIT TAKE: A character-driven thriller, centering on the themes of terrorism, understanding and hope. THE PURE PLOT PITCH: Here’s bad day: Guy sets out to rob a bank but ends up pulling a carjacking, and when he’s arrested a body is found in the trunk. The victim is a Sunni community leader, and why was he killed? Who killed him? The search for answers takes me into a homegrown Islamic terror underground, into plots, counterplots, deceptions and love affairs, all leading to an attack on a major NYC landmark.

Self-conscious about writing?

Within the past few hours I've talked to two friends who are trying to write and have ideas, but they get blocked by self-consciousness. It's a common problem--and it's a killer for creativity. Don't try to write something that's going to please other people. Try to write something that's only going to please your harshest critic--yourself.…

take care

Glad to be on board, Richard. I'll be reading you with interest. That's a warehoue and two sheds' worth of life experience you have there. Can't beat the variation in informing our fiction, even if the experience is a cold one. Any thanks.

Hi Richard,
I write in 3 genres so I concentrate on one particular genre at a time, marketing myself and that book. My BLOG was rated #51 in Australia. Check out my BLOG post ... Build your Writers Platform @

PS I will need to catch the new Dexter series.

Hi Richard,
Nice to meet you. I'm a multi-genre writer working on Kids Sc-fi book, part of a Space Kids series atm. How's your writing going?

'Fast Forward' got canceled? Gosh! Those meanies!!!! That network always does that... You would think they could wind it up before deserting us. I find I am also liking 'The Event' Hopefully they will let it run its proper course so we can actually see how it unfolds right to the end. Now I am going eat some chocolate and grieve... **pouting**

Thank-you for the invite... I too, just read your blog on August 23 about self-conscious writing... Very interesting and 'Oh so helpful!'

I exaggerate, of course. That's part of the Canadian obsession with weather. Yesterday's snow is still on the ground, but inly in small splotches. It's a good season to write, especially about murder.
