I was born in Vermont where I still spends my summers. I have been a successful real estate developer in Florida, Georgia, and California. I live in the Palm Springs, California area with my wife Bonnie, where I wrote my first novel of five, Eva Pennington.

I am the oldest of seven and graduated from Braintree Randolph Union High School in 1962, and attended Miami Dade Junior college. I was honorably discharged from the Army in 1967.

My hobbies are writing, running and golf.

He made millions while still in his 20s—but not without some brushes with the Miami Beach Mob.

Soon Turk is caught in a triple bind and must walk the razor’s edge to take care of his family, outsmart Niko’s double cross, and serve up the mobster to the feds.
