Author of 18 published books, most recently "The Enemy Within," a Tor/Forge mass market release August 2008.........I've been translated into 7 langauges and have sold about 4,000,000 books around the world........Why then, have you possibly not heard of me?
From 1975 until 1999 I had a large number of books published by Doubleday, Dial, Dell, Kensington and Bantam. Then I hit one of those mid-life things. Divorce, illness, relocation (to California), work in films (not the worst thing) and a protracted battled with my previous publisher (Kensington.) All that is now done, finito, finished. "The Enemy Within," my first espionage/action/suspense thriller since 1992 (GASP!) will be out in late July. Then I have a new series from Zondervan/HarperCollins, starting in the fall. First title, "Conspiracy in Kiev."
Zondervan is already the best publisher I've ever had and I have an A-plus editor there. I look forward to great things....

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”
Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."
Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"
The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.
Thanks for adding me to your list of friends.
I'll head out and grab one of your books for a read. Great All- star game at Yankee stadium last night. J.D. Drew the MVP? Even though I'm a big Sox fan I would have given it to Mariano. They'll never be able to replace that park. The greatest franchise in the history of sports. That said, the Sox have a better team this year and should win the World Series, although repeating is the toughest thing in sports. Jack
Thanks for the friend add, Noel. Wow, that's a lot of books, a lot of languages and a lot of sales! Congrats! And glad you're with a good publishers now. I'm only up to three books and three languages - and that's counting English (ha, ha)!
Well, it's been fine in this unusual case. Normally one needs an agent, I freely admit. I've had agents from 1975 until 2006 and I STILL have an agent for scripts and who reps the movie rights for me. It's late her in California right now, but in the next day or so I'll post a few hints on how to entice and agent or publisher. Probably things you already know. But I'll put them up, anyway.
