Location Newington, CT, United States
Introduction I'm a former English teacher, actor, director, and still terrible guitarist. I think I wrote my first mystery, heavily based on the Hardy Boys, when I was about ten and wrote off and on for several years. Grad school re-kindled the interest and I wrote five unpublished novels in the 1970s. Then I drifted into theater for several years and only started writing again when our group lost its performance space the same week I retired from teaching. I took it as a sign, for better or for worse. So here I am.
Interests Acoustic guitar (folk, blues, rock, country), theater (former actor & director), reading, writing fiction
Favorite Movies High Noon, Dr. Strangelove, Bull Durham, Raising Arizona, The January Man, Charade (the original with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn), Rear Window...
Favorite Music I got my driver's license months before the Beatles appeared on Ed Sullivan, so the British Invasion was my high school sound track. I also love old blues and later sixties and Americana.
Favorite Books The Great Gatsby, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Bleak House, Lord Jim, To Kill A Mockingbird, Dandelion Wine, The Brothers Karamazov, The Magic Mountain, Storming Heaven, Mystic River, All The King's Men, California Fire & Life
