This blog version of my already controversial first novel, which was written back in the late nineties has already gotten completely out of control. It's shape and structure could only live in the contemporary computer. This one is dark, gritty, and real in a way that most people will probably find uncomfortable. Good.

March 1st marked the sad date that Charles Lindbergh, Junior, or the Lindbergh Baby, as he came to be known, was kidnapped from his parents' home in 1932. Charles and Ann Morrow Lindbergh never saw their child again.
The abduction of this baby, which prompted "The Trial of the Century," made him perhaps the most famous baby in the world. He was twenty months old at the time of his kidnapping and death. Theories abound, and some insist that… Continue

I attended my first writer's conference about a month ago, and I have to say, I'm really glad I did. I met a lot of writers whose books and stories I have read for the first time in the past year, as well as publishers and editors. They were all friendly and willing to answer questions from a newbie like myself, and I'm sure some of my questions were dumb. But no one let on. They were a lot of fun. I don't know what I expected, since I was pretty nervous. Tess Gerritsen, Joe Konrath, Alison… Continue

This is my first blog post on CrimeSpace... I'm sorry if it's somewhat negative. I'm usually a very positive person. But, sometimes, people just suck.
We had a snow storm in NY/NJ on Friday (Feb. 22). Inches of snow and hiding patches of ice (I presume). I drove all the way to work - over an hour on a normal day, I was there 20 minutes when my company decided to close. I go home, park my brand new 2008 black Honda Civic coupe in front of my house and left it there all weekend. The… Continue

As one of the contributing authors to the blog, I posted two articles this past week on MURDER BY 4
that I hope you'll find interesting. The first is titled "A Chance Meeting."
I wrote this short scene as a challenge to write a scene between my character Sam Harper and author Aaron Lazar's Gus LeGarde protagonist. This was a fun challenge for me because I wrote it from Gus… Continue

Southern hospitality is alive and well and greatly represented in Columbia, South Carolina.
I spent last weekend at the Columbia Book Festival. What a delight. First and foremost, people are wonderful, friendly, warm, helpful and welcoming.
Here I am, a new unknown author, selling my first book-more often than not, the response was, well I just have to buy your new book and see if I like it.
I was amazed at the generosity and kindness of the reading public. And… Continue

A couple of months ago I took my black belt test at the Kung Fu school I've been attending. It was tough for an old geezer like me, but I survived it, and after five years of pretty intense training, earned my black belt. Anyway, that's the reason for replacing my author's photo.

‘Have you ever killed a man with your bare hands?’
‘I beg your pardon?’ I said.
The publicist smiled. ‘Have you ever killed a man with your bare hands? You know, choked the life out him, crushed his windpipe, dug your fingers in till his larynx collapsed and the veins bulged out on his temple.’
I shook my head. ‘No, sorry.’
She smiled. ‘Garrotted anyone?’
I shook my head again.
‘Shot, perhaps,’ she suggested, ‘stabbed,… Continue

When I was in Japan for a year in 1983, all people could talk about was AIDS and the "Miura Jiken," or Miura Incident. Two years earlier, a Japanese man, Kazuyoshi Miura, and his wife had been visiting L.A. when two gunman shot them in a shady part of town. Kazuyoshi only suffered a minor leg wound, while the wife had been hit in the head. She was in a coma until she finally died in Japan. "Rosu (Los Angeles) dangerous" was the general message that spread over Japan, thanks to Miura's… Continue
